Acclaimed chefs Colin Fassnidge, Karen Martini, Guy Grossi and Liz Egan also return to Kitchen HQ in 2017 to judge the new batch of aspiring home cooks.
And when the MKR doorbell rings this year, expect new twists and a new face at the dinner table.
The teams for MKR 2017 are:
Damo & Caz, TAS - Tassie Sweethearts
David & Betty, NSW - #JustFriends
Karen & Ros, VIC - Midwives
Bek & Ash, WA - Flirty Flatmates
Tim & Kyle, SA - Pub Mates
Amy & Tyson, QLD - Serious Siblings
Albert & Dave, NSW - Brothers
Kelsey & Amanda, NSW - Sisters
Court & Duncan, VIC - Married Hipsters
Josh & Amy, WA - Seafood Lovers

Mark & Chris, VIC - Footy Friends
Caitie & Demi, VIC - Besties
Lama & Sarah, SA - Cousins
Brett & Marie, QLD - First Loves
Valerie & Courtney, QLD - Mother and Daughter
Mell & Cyn, NSW - Business Women
Each team will take turns to transform an ordinary home into an Instant Restaurant for one pressure cooker night. They'll plate up a three-course menu designed to impress the judges and their fellow contestants to avoid elimination. Remaining teams will face amazing location challenges in the hope of staying in the competition for the Ultimate Instant Restaurant round, before our finalists battle it out in Kitchen HQ.
In 2016, an average national audience of 2.32 million people tuned in to see Melbourne sisters, Tasia and Gracia, take out the competition and the $250,000 grand prize.
Another $250,000 prize is on the line when MKR 2017 premieres Monday after the tennis on Seven.
