Viewers seemed to have breathed a sigh of relief after the controversial contestants Jessie Khan and Biswa Kamila of the popular TV show My Kitchen Rules were booted out last night.
The NSW friends Jessie and Biswa took an early exit from the show after they failed to impress when they scored 41 points out of a 110 for their instant restaurant battle.

The two were completely devastated with their elimination and they shed tears after they lost the confidence and the vote of the judges.
"The thing I am concerned about is the race comments, that worries me. We are caught between two worlds. The Indian community doesn't want to adopt us, the Australians just think we are a...holes," Biswa said.
Khan said they made an error of not treating the show as a game. Instead they entered the series with the premise of only wanting to have "fun". "If I was in their (viewers) shoes maybe I would be thinking the same like, 'these girls - I can't believe it, s..t just falls out of their mouths'," she said.
Despite their critical image, it is believed that the controversy stirred by the Spice Girls of the popular cooking show rake in amazing ratings for Seven as 2.2 million Australians tuned in beating its rivals last Tuesday night. It is thought the ratings of the show may be affected due to the elimination of the two girls.
However, it seemed that viewers think that the girls deserved the elimination. Twitters and other social media outlets fired up with comments towards the MKR eliminations. In Facebook, a photo comparing Jessie and Biswa to the muppets can be found on a fan page for the show.
The pair tried to defend themselves after they claimed that they have received death threats from viewers due to their attitude in the show.
The girls also spoke about how they are being portrayed in the show saying that there is a lot of aspects of the filming that are edited out of the final cut which makes them come across a lot different than they are in reality.
The Spice Girls said that they are just being real and judge according to their personal tastes like normal girlfriends.
Viewers commented harshly on the two after dishing on fellow contestants and criticising their food choices in the Channel 7 show.
The high school friends from Sydney make no apologies for their unabashed confidence, despite critics calling them "immature" and "annoying". Thus, they have been accused of being devoid of basic manners, lacking table etiquette and hating too many foods to ever make it as professional chefs.
The pair has been heavily criticized for being picky eaters and negative comments towards their fellow contestants. Many Twitter viewers suggest that they should not be on the show if they do not like foods such as vegetables.
"We have had death threats. Someone said, 'If we see them we are going to stab them'. It feels like the whole of Australia hates us. We are just saying everything truthfully. We're not trying to lie or backstab or anything. If we say, 'We don't like this', we don't personally mean I don't like you, we mean we just don't like your food. How hard is it to distinguish between those two? It's a competition, it's never a personal attack," Kamila said.
