Harry and Christo's My Kitchen Rules meltdown

HARRY and Christo suffered a near total meltdown in the kitchen on My Kitchen Rules last night.

The usually upbeat Melbourne mates were looking long in the face after melting under the pressure of the show, scoring the lowest score of the instant restaurants so far this series.

They scored three points less than group one's eliminated Canberra lovebirds Andrew and Emelia, and now sit at the bottom of the leader board under Cairns couple David and Corinne.

David didn't need to trash talk Harry and Christo at the table, but he did anyway, with the boys sabotaging themselves enough in the kitchen.

The first course wasn't even out and Harry's hands were covered in blue band aids.

The commercial real estate agent admitted to being "not with it" after breaking nearly a dozen eggs and stuffing up the pastry for their entrée.

Unfortunately the first course would turn out to be their best of the night.

 "It's a very colourful plate, that's for sure," said judge Manu Feildel.

 "All in all it's a good start."

Buoyed by the positive feedback and a pep talk in the kitchen from Feildel, Harry and Christo tried to recover from their disastrous start.

But overcooked veal doomed their main course.

 "If you're going to overcook veal, which is what you did, then there needs to be some saving grace on the plate," said judge Pete Evans.

"Once it goes over you can't bring it back. This is not even in the same ball park as your entrée."

And they got Feildel offside for not serving any sauce with the main course.

Things went from bad to worse, with the guests waiting three hours for dessert after the guys decided to ditch their store-bought pastry and make their own pastry for their blueberry tarts.

It was a matter of perservering, rather than impressing.

"You look like you've been through a 13-round boxing match, what happened tonight?" asked Feildel.

Evans added: "It was just flat guys. If you get another chance to cook again I'm sure we'll see a different Harry and Christo in the kitchen and a different Harry and Christo on the plate."

And with the recent revelation of three gatecrasher teams and a second chance for the lowest scoring teams from the first two groups, Harry and Christo might get another shot at impressing the judges.

David has been declared the smiling assassin of the group. Now that he and Corinne are safe will they be a bit nicer at the next instant restaurant?

Tonight mums Bree and Jessica will host their three-course meal in Adelaide.
