Their victory comes after a nail-biting Grand Final, that left viewers – and the judges – on the edge of their seats.

MKR judge Colin Fassnidge went on Instagram to defend the girls after getting “racial negative comments about the winners to my page.”

“In this day and age, I won’t stand for it. If your mind is so small get over it mate. It’s a cooking competition we’re not saving lives,” he responded.

Their win was hard-earned, following a gruelling competition that saw nine teams competing in the Instant Restaurant round before seven teams moved on to MKR Kitchen Headquarters. 

Fans said goodbye to all but two teams ahead of the Grand Final, with predictions split 50/50 over who would win: Team VIC or Team NSW.

It’s been a pleasure to eat your food, whatever happens tonight, look back on this and enjoy it. And be proud of what you did, because you gave us some great food,” Colin told both teams before unveiling the scores.
