In the second Instant Restaurant of Group 2, the teams head to NSW to eat food dished up by sisters Kelsey and Amanda.
The decibel-defying pair was at their peak volume as they hosted the group, causing several contestants (and Manu) to wince in pain as the girls shrieked over their incredible score of 95 out of a possible 110.
We’re sure the neighbourhood dogs were barking, too!
But luckily for the girls, the most sour moment of the episode had nothing to do with their food. In fact, they missed it entirely!
After tucking into a delicious spinach and ricotta ravioli entré that the judges dubbed “perfect”, the teams are making conversation while they wait for the crispy skin snapper main to come out.
After Josh reveals that he used to be a model, Matt decides to make an ill-timed joke.
“Have you ever heard of batting merrins?” he laughs, implying that Josh’s wife Amy is the least attractive of the couple.
“That’s not very nice, Matt,” Tully scolds, as Matt’s wife Elyse just smiles awkwardly.
“He would have got a swift old elbow to the groin if he was my husband, that’s for sure,” Della says to camera. We’re right with you, girl!
“I didn’t really appreciate that comment at all, saying I was punching above my weight,” Amy says. “I was like seething. It really showed Matt’s true colours.”
Matt insists he was just joking, but he clearly hasn’t heard the rule that jokes are supposed to be funny – and no one is laughing. “There’s too many feminists at this table,” he complains.
Nope, buddy, you’re just a jerk.
As Josh puts it: “Elyse and Matt are quite superficial people. I’d be happy to see them kicked out of this competition.”
Move over Tyson, there’s a new villain in town!
