It was a heart wrenching end to last night's episode of 'My Kitchen Rules' as South Australians Leigh & Jennifer eliminated their close friends, Queensland's much-loved soldier mates David & Scott, from the competition.
Both girls were moved to tears upon hearing their score of 52/60, which narrowly trumped the boys' score of 49/60.
It was a frenetic night of kitchen action, with the six remaining teams being tasked with creating a cheese-themed dish. The bottom two teams, David & Scott and Leigh & Jennifer, were sent straight through to the sudden death cook-off.
David & Scott served Lobster with Basil Gnocchi, whilst Leigh & Jennifer plated up Mulloway with Celeriac Puree. Both dishes were exquisite and perfectly cooked, but it was Leigh & Jennifer whose dish had the edge, with the judges awarding them the highest score.
Upon being announced as the victors, Leigh & Jennifer both burst into tears, unable to cope with having to eliminate their close mates.
"They're beautiful," Leigh said of David & Scott, "the world isn't full of people like this, and if it was it'd be a better place."
