The most controversial participants of My Kitchen Rules Sonya Mefaddi and Hadil Faiza have broken their silence about their notorious exit from the show.
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Said Sonya MKR: the terrible reviews of the rivals ‘serve them immediately’ after the couple were notoriously removed from the series in 2018.
Speaking after their TV gag order had been lifted on Saturday, Sonya pleaded with the show producers for “causing a drama” in their season and painting the pair as “villains.”

“I signed up for a cooking show,” Sonya said, adding that she didn’t expect it to be produced that way and that she was shocked that producers only wanted drama.
MKR had only 422,000 viewers on the metro on Tuesday evening, while Married At First Sight had an audience of 1,178 million.
“It’s good for them,” she added. “The cause of the decline in MKR ratings is simply the result of the wrong behavior of producers.”
Drama: Last year an astounding 2,389 million viewers tuned in to see that Sonya and her BFF Hadil started up from My Kitchen Rules for ‘bullying behavior’
After the show, Hadil revealed that she was diagnosed with severe PTSD, depression, and anxiety.
The two were famed from the competition by jury members Manu Fieldel and Pete Evans, after a showdown with rivals Jess Alvial and Emma Byron, known as the ‘Botox sisters’.
Tensions reached a fever when Sonya and Hadil made unfriendly comments about the physical appearance of Jess and Emma, causing Manu and Pete to kick them off the show.
An amazing 2.39 million viewers tuned in to see the argument take place.
A new twist! An email from Manu Fieldel said he and Pete were to follow Channel Seven’s executive decision orders, saying they believed the pair could have won the competition
In the same interview, the couple also revealed never-before-seen emails from jury members, in which Manu said he and Pete were “upset” about the way the women were leaving.
A message from Manu said he and Pete should follow Channel Seven’s executive decision, adding that they believed the pair could have won the competition if they had stayed.
“It was a shame how things ended as they did and I only have good memories of your participation in the competition,” Pete wrote to Sonya.

“We really worked with you,” Manu added. “The sad part is that we believe you could have won this competition.”
Daily Mail Australia has contacted a Channel Seven representative for comments.
Their interview comes after MKR: The Rivals judge Colin Fassnidge revealed that he thought the drama involving the two women was the beginning of the end of the once unbeatable cooking show by Seven.

The Irish chef, 46, told The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Thursday that the bullies saga about Sonya and Hadil eliminated viewers.
“I think we were crucified a few years ago for a minor incident with Sonya and Hadil. Do you remember they got kicked out? ‘ he said.
“The drama went through the roof and many people were eliminated,” he added.
