The heavily rejigged series, which promised audiences ‘real food and real people’, was unable to compete with the two other reality series debuting on Sunday: Nine’s The Block and 10’s The Masked Singer.

Just over 500,000 viewers across metro cities tuned into MKR.

Sunday was the first time MKR had aired since 2020, when it was rested due to a combination of declining ratings and controversy caused by its outspoken judge Pete Evans.
