My Kitchen Rules Australia Series 4 Episode 5 When Australia's favourite home-cooking show returns for its fourth series in 2013, the table will be set for a few extra guests. Welcoming a new judge along with blind taste testing for the first time, the biggest shock for audiences will be seeing who's crashing the My Kitchen Rules dinner parties. Who do you think it could be? One thing is certain: there are plenty of surprises in store when My Kitchen Rules launches in 2013. Manu Feildel and Pete Evans return to host and judge the ultimate home-cooking battle as they accept dinner party invites in each state across the country. This series they welcome new guest judge Colin Fassnidge to the table alongside returning guest judges Guy Grossi, Karen Martini and Liz Egan. It's state versus state, plate against plate, as teams of two attempt to out-dine and out-wine each other to see whose kitchen rules. Each team will take turns to transform an ordinary home into an instant restaurant for one pressure cooker night. They'll serve up a three course menu designed to impress not only their fellow contestants but our esteemed judges. There will be triumphs, kitchen fires, laughter, tears and plenty of opinionated guests as they battle the clock and their nerves to plate up on time. The top two teams will again battle it out in the grand final where they will present their ultimate dining menu to a full restaurant. With $250,000 in prize money on offer, the knives will definitely be out. Group 1 - Brother and sister Sunshine Coast siblings Jake and Elle are well travelled and enjoy the finer things in life. Elle, 22, is studying business and law at QUT, while Jake, 20, is studying performance and dance. Elle likes to go to the pub with her girlfriends. Jake is a social butterfly on the Brisbane club scene. And Elle is a quiet achiever, while Jake is enthusiastically competitive. They clearly adore each other for who they are - and say they learned the value in respecting personal differences from their parents. Elle credits her parents with encouraging them to be independent and ambitious. "They've never said, 'No you canΓÇÖt do that.' TheyΓÇÖve said, 'It's up to you. Try and do the right thing, but have fun.' Strange as it sounds they've disciplined us with love because we love them so much, we don't want to disappoint them." But, admits Elle, "They werenΓÇÖt around heaps when we were young. They had to travel for work. So we've been treated like adults." And from there, says Jake, has come this vivacious pair's expertise in the kitchen. "We've been crafting cheese platters since before ΓÇ¿I can remember. Cut the strawberries up, put the dates and the dolmades on the side," enthuses Jake. Adds Elle, "We do all the cooking and the entertaining. Mum just sits back and opens a bottle of wine. We've done that since we were like, 10. She'll say, 'I've got some friends coming over' and ΓÇ¿I'll be like, 'Okay, I'll go to the grocery store and pick up this and that, where's your key card?' ... Mum will come home there'll be the cheese platter, the food on the way and weΓÇÖll have the whole thing decorated," Jake and Elle chuckle warmly. The kitchen is a place that equates to love for them. Jake's signature dessert for such occasions is Black Forest cake; Elle's is lemon meringue pie. They do a lot of freshly made pasta together. "We work well under pressure together. We just click and get things rolling," says Jake. Both admit to being perfectionists. "I'm a quiet achiever. I like to be on my game," says Elle. Jake chips in: "I'm relaxed, but I like everything being in order and properly done. And look, we can really fight, but we eventually get over it."
