‘My Kitchen Rules’ — Where the Past Winners Are Right Now

Where Are the Winners of My Kitchen Rules Now?

My Kitchen Rules has been going for approximately 100 years. Okay, fine, it’s been going since 2010. However, because this series has had such longevity, it now has plenty of winners.

Which begs the question: Where are all the My Kitchen Rules winners now? Are they all millionaire cookbook extraordinaires? Or have they fallen off?

If you’re curious to know the answer to this query, we have got your back. Here’s a list of where the last three My Kitchen Rules winners are now.

Where Are the Winners of My Kitchen Rules Now?

Janelle and Monzir – 2022

In 2022, Janelle and Monzir won My Kitchen Rules by cooking some killer dishes. These included Kataifi prawn with halloumi and watermelon salad, Sudanese beef with Orka stew, and baklava with Kaymak ice cream. After being praised for feeds, this couple won $100,000.

According to Janelle and Monzir, this money has transformed their lives. In an interview with Yahoo, the pair said that they have launched a business called Monzelle, are writing a cookbook, and are creating aprons.

“Our lives have changed, but also our goals and who we are as people has changed as well,” Janelle said.

“Starting our own business was something that I always wanted to do, but I never thought I was going to do it,” Monzir added. “And after MKR, that opportunity opened doors for us and certainly opened my eyes to do great things and just push forward every day.”

Jake and Elle – 2020

In 2020, Jake and Elle took home the My Kitchen Rules grand prize. They did this by serving trout tartare with smoked roe, burrata with tomatoes, and rabbit with polenta. However, this victory was bitter-sweet for Jake and Elle, as they couldn’t celebrate with each other due to COVID.

For a hot minute, Jake and Elle were serving cannoli and shakes at Hamilton’s Eat Street Market. However, their joint venture has since closed.

As it stands, Jake has recently been travelling and went to a “bucket list destination,” Kotor. Meanwhile, Elle is sporadically posting recipes on her Insta.

Matthew and Luke — 2019

In 2019, Matthew and Luke were the chosen ones. They received some superb scores after making some confit salmon with peas, duck ravioli with wild mushroom, and barramundi with roasted fennel.

Alex and Emily — 2018

In 2018, Alex and Emily dominated the competition. In the finale, they served up some incredible courses. These included tuna tartare with harissa oil, jamon wrapped lamb brains with caper mayonnaise, and a Penicillin cocktail dessert. 

Since winning My Kitchen Rules, Alex has enjoyed catching and cooking some delicious seafood. He’s also whipped up some incredible feeds on his barbecue.
