The grand finale of Seven’s My Kitchen Rules may have smashed the competition, however the 2.596 million that tuned into last night’s results show was down from the previous year’s 2.95 million.

While the announcement of the winners may have grabbed more than 2.5 million, the high pressure cook-off segment that saw well-travelled friends Chloe and Kelly against proud mums, Bree and Jessica last night drew in 2.302 million, according to OzTam preliminary ratings.

Sydneysiders and Melbournians rallied for top place of highest number of viewers for the two and a half hour show at 7.30pm show however Sydney scraped through as 732,000 watched the winners announcement compared to the 722,000 in Melbourne.

MKR has come under controversy lately when “bullies” Chloe and Kelly scraped through to the final with one point.

The creation of a Facebook page even led to some viewers vowing to “boycott” watching the final.
