My Kitchen Rules live blog

Points for effort, Emelia and Andrew.  That's all from me tonight, next up the Queensland surfer Dads will try to wow the judges with their own instant restaurant.

So the NSW cheesemakers are on 82, Canberrans on 47.  Not a great showing from the first ACT ever to make it to My Kitchen Rules.

Manu give the gourmet gumbo a five, Peter gives it a four.

But Manu loved the tart, it's a seven from Peter.

That's a grand total of 47.  That's no good at all.

Peter gives the entree a 3.  Ouch!

It's a one from a Manu.  On the upside, it can only get better from here.

The other teams give Andrew and Emelia a total score of 20 out 50.  No good, no good at all.

It's a five from the surfer Dads, four from Chloe and Kelley and and a four from Annie and Jason.

And a three from Deb and Rick. Compared to last night's team, things aren't looking good for the Canberrans.

Surfer Dads are loving the tart, but Chloe and Kelly, surprise surprise, are not impressed.  It's burnt, they say.

Manu says the tart was chewy on top and soft in the middle, he liked it.  Peter says they did a good effort, but not perfect.  That's their best dish of the night.

Good news, the chocolate and cherry tart looks good.  They don't bother to try it, because let's face it they've got no other options anyway.

Online reviews are no better for Emelia and Andrew.

Deb says there were no elements on the dish that were enjoyable, which seems a bit harsh.

Andrew's broken into song while whipping cream.  It's nice to see his spirit has not been broken by the bad reviews.

Manu says he could see stress on the plate.  Our favourite Canberra couple are going to have to pull it together for the dessert.

Oh no!!  Judge Peter Evans says the gumbo is very underwhelming.  This is not good news for Canberra.  He says the sauce tastes OK, but he's not tasting the "love" in the dish.

It's a fine line between rustic and sloppy, as Emelia just observed.  Guests are tasting the gumbo.

Guests are starving and have started eating decorative lollypops, Jason's eaten five.  Helen and Vikki are worried there's going to be no lollypops left.

Some thoughts from the web

 

 

The guests have now been waiting an hour for their main, and Andrew forgot to de-vein the prawns.  Andrew reckons Emelia hasn't cleaned the mussels well enough.  It's falling apart at the scenes.

Aaaand it's time for an add break.  Now's a good time to make a mental note to never enter a reality TV show with your partner.

Andrew tells Emelia the pastry must have the perfect consistency.  So no pressure then.

Looks like trouble in paradise for these chirpy love birds.  To tackle the tart first, or the gumbo.  I just don't know!!

Deb's also disappointed by the lack of a barrel.  I think everyone needs to move past the barrel.
