MKR 2017 - My Kitchen Rules


Simon Fleming the Producer of My Kitchen Rules NZ has asked Tahuri Whenua to help him find suitable contestants for the next season of MKR. He asks...

"We are currently casting for the new series this time with Pete & Manu and I would love a Maori team to be on the show and show off some of our culture and local produce.  I was wondering if you know of any couples who may be great team or if you could put the word out?"
