“People say there is too much drama [on MKR]but they are going to look at botox at first sight! “Colin joked that MKR also had” botox and drama “like their nine rivals
“I really didn’t like what we were doing two years ago [MKR] were doing but this [season] I support it, “the Irish chef told Kyle and Jackie O.
Colin added that the plague scandal involving Sonya Mefaddi and Hadil Faiza in 2018 had “turned off” the show.
But he still does not understand any criticism that there is “too much drama” on MKR.
“People say there is too much drama, but they are going to look at Botox at first sight, or whatever it is called! If you want Botox, we have it! We have the drama, we have the cooking. It is awesome!’ he said.
“I think we’re going to do my marriage rules next year.”
Colin closed the case by saying that “probably next year he will be looking for a job at home” if the ratings of MKR do not improve.

“They don’t know how to program a program!” Chef Colin destroyed Seven’s ‘stupid decisions’ amid the disastrous ratings of My Kitchen Rules in a heated radio chat on Tuesday
It comes after Colin broke his silence on the gloomy reviews of MKR on Tuesday during a heated chat with Chris Smith of 2 GB.
He became villain and destroyed his own network for misusing the launch of the series.
“Not everyone is watching it right now, because we have a few people in Channel Seven who don’t know how to program a program!” he said.
“But what do I know? I’m just a cook! ”

MKR: The Rivals suffered complete humiliation when it was struck by the premiere of Great Australian Railway Journeys at SBS last Tuesday night.
The reviews were so bad that TV Blackbox editor Robert McKnight predicted that My Kitchen Rules would soon be canceled.
‘Nothing comes of the show anymore. You might as well write the eulogy and prepare the coffin … he won’t be back, “McKnight told News.com.au.
“I don’t think anyone expected this kind of destruction. I think it comes back to the fact that they launched it against the Australian Open final [on Sunday night]. It really hurt them.
“Can there be a recovery? I really don’t think so. “
