MKR contestant vomits after woeful fish and chips dish

MY Kitchen Rules has achieved another record - its first vomit.

The upchuck came during tonight's epic fish fail by West Australian team Josh and Amy Meeuwissen.

Josh, who had bragged about being a seafood king, couldn't even plate up a decent main of fish and chips.

Worse still, Josh's cooking sent rival contestant Alyse Jenner running to the toilet for a good spew.

Judge Pete Evans gave Josh and Amy's horror main of what was meant to be beer battered Barramundi with shoestring fries and tartare sauce a dismal 1 out of 10.

Fellow judge Manu Feildel scored them only slightly better with 2 out of 10 as Josh and Amy headed towards an overall score of 43 out of 110.

Josh, a Broome-based deck hand, has spent most of his time on Seven's cooking show bragging about his seafood skills.

As tonight's episode started he said "when it comes to the preparing and cooking of seafood, I would beat a five star chef”.

Oh no he wouldn't.

Things got off to a rocky start at the pair's Longshore Drift instant restaurant as rival teams and judges Evans and Feildel were forced to wait more than two and a quarter hours for the entree to arrive.

And when it did, the chorizo-stuffed squid was a big disappointment. Josh had trouble charring the squid.

Evans enjoyed the squid but took aim at the chorizo stuffing and especially the tomato sauce which he said "was not worthy of this competition”.

"I would have liked to get the chorizo a little bit chunkier and more prominent in there,” Evans said.

"(The sauce) tastes like tinned diced tomatoes.”

Evans and Feildel gave the entree a mediocre 5 out of 10 but worse was to come - what one competitor described as "the most spectacular nosedive in the competition”.

Josh was forced to scrap the beer batter when he had issues with the portable fryer. The shoestring fries were soggy and the tartare sauce tasted like gherkin juice.

All the kitchen calamities meant the contestants had to wait more than two and a half hours between entree and main.

"Fish is meant to be my specialty and the judges are eating the worst fish I've ever cooked in my life,” a slightly more humble Josh said.

Evans didn't hold back. "Your fish is a disaster,” he said. "It wasn't seasoned properly. It wasn't cooked really that great either.”

Alyse had previously spoken about an aversion to fish and it only took a few mouthfuls of Josh's Barramundi to tip her over the edge.

Alyse turned pale, sprinted from the table and headed straight for the toilet.

"The Barramundi was the straw that broke the camel's back and made me sick,” Alyse said.

Rival teams had already savaged Josh and Amy's menu for being too simple and the poor main was all the ammunition they needed.

Queensland's Della Whearty thought the fries looked like small worms.

"You obviously don't know as much about seafood as you think you do,” Della's teammate Tully Vella said.

Dessert was Cape Brandy pudding and it too met with negative feedback, especially from Evans.

"Did I enjoy it - not particularly,” Evans said. "I think the brandy's a little overpowering for it. It is a little bit sweet.”

Feildel was more positive, saying "I think it was the best dish out of the three courses tonight.”

Evans gave Josh and Amy's dessert 4 out of 10. Feildel gave it 8 out of 10.

The rival teams scored the pair's food 18 out of 50, including a lowly 3 out of 10 from Albert and Dave Lau from New South Wales.

Josh and Amy now sit at the bottom of the Group 2 leaderboard and look certainties to head to sudden death cook-off early next week.
