They recently shared the story of their engagement with New Idea, and MKR’s Stacey and Ash looked seriously loved-up as they shared a kiss on Jan. 30.
The engaged Instagram stars from Byron Bay were the first team to cook as the hit Channel 7 series returns to screens this year and walked away with a combined team score of 38 out of 70.
But while things could improve in the kitchen, life away from the world of Instant Restaurants appears to be agreeing with the sweethearts.
The duo beamed as they were caught on camera at Broadbeach – with Ash wearing his trademark pirate patch after he lost the sight in his eye.
Stacey wore her long blonde hair loose for their loved-up jaunt – pairing denim shorts with a white midrift-baring t-shirt and accessorising with a rattan tote.
Ash, meanwhile, paired some beige shorts with a somewhat crumpled shirt.
Telling New Idea how they met, Stacey revealed Ash used to like all her social media photos – and a marriage proposal followed from there.
“Stacey and I have a favourite restaurant called Raes on Wategos where we would go for any celebrations like birthdays,” Ash revealed.
“I can’t remember what we were celebrating but I said we should go to Raes and I suggested we both wear white so we could get some photos together for our Instagrams. Anyway when we left, I put her in the car and blindfolded her.
“I drove her around the block a few times to confuse her, went back to Raes and I had the penthouse rented out so I carried her up the stairs, blindfolded, and I had her favourite photographer hiding in the corner of the penthouse so they could get photos of the moment. I had her favourite song playing.
“I got a bunch of flowers and set it all up. So I dropped to the knee but I can’t remember what I said because we both started crying.”
