My Kitchen Rules Show Summary
My Kitchen Rules (often abbreviated as MKR) is an Australian competitive cooking game show broadcast on the Seven Network since 2010. Celebrity chef and host Manu Feildel has appeared in every season of the show. Fellow chef Pete Evans co-hosted until his departure after season 11, following controversy about his personal views and social media posts. Other celebrity chefs and food critics frequently appear as guest judges or mentors in the kitchen. The series was originally produced by the team who created the Seven reality show My Restaurant Rules, and was put into production based on the success of Network 10’s MasterChef Australia.
For many years, the program has continued to perform strongly in ratings, among the highest rated programs on Australian television, with finals consistently being among the 10 highest rated programs of the year. However ratings declined notably during Season 10 in 2019, and with further significant declines for Season 11 in 2020, commentators speculated that 2020 would be its final season.
Seven did not renew the series for a twelfth season at their annual upfronts in October 2020, but suggested the show may return in future. During Seven’s annual upfronts, the series was confirmed to return for a new season in 2022. In December 2021, Feildel was announced to be returning as a judge. In April 2022, it was announced Nigella Lawson and Matt Preston will be joining the series as judges alongside Feildel with Colin Fassnidge and Curtis Stone appearing as guest judges.
