You know it’s going to be an eventful Grand Final when news break that one team has stormed off set in tears.
According to Woman’s Day, cousins Jac and Shaz believe they were tricked into thinking they’d won the $250,000 grand prize.
The same article reveals that My Kitchen Rules producers filmed two alternate endings for tonight’s finale – one with Jac and Shaz winning and one with Steve and Will winning.
“Everyone else on set, including Will and Steve, were fully aware that two endings were being filmed,” said a Woman’s Day source.
“It was like common knowledge. But Jac and Shaz were clueless and furious they’d been kept in the dark.”
After filming finished, the cousins were shocked to discover that they hadn’t actually won at that point, it seems they weren’t aware that TV shows often film alternate endings to avoid the big surprise being leaked before the show airs.
“Jac and Shaz burst into tears, and their families, who were in the audience, got very upset too,” said the source.
“They went from the highest high to all of a sudden feeling robbed of their victory and they stormed off the set.”
The My Kitchen Rules grand final airs tonight, Monday May 4, at 7:30pm on Channel 7.
