Channel 7 announced today that the next season of My Kitchen Rules will feature lifelong cycling ‘buddies’ Tony Abbott and Kevin Andrews competing to win the title.
“We have so far avoided using so called ‘celebrities’ on the show,” said a Channel 7 Spokesperson. “However as our polling suggested neither Andrews or Abbott are popular enough to be considered a celebrity so it works well for us.”
When asked how he felt they would go on the show the Channel 7 Spokesperson said: “I’m not sure, they seem to work well together however they do have some odd requests. For instance they insist on using a coal fired oven and Tony always seems to be taking knives claiming he needs to give them to his friend Malcolm.”
Said Kevin Andrews of his upcoming appearance on My Kitchen Rules: “Am looking forward to getting into the kitchen and getting behind Tony.”
Mr Abbott was also keen to talk up his future My Kitchen Rules appearance saying: “It will be good for the show and the Australian public to see Kevin and I in the kitchen in our lycra. Dare I say it we will bring a bit of sex appeal back to televison.”
