What MKR's Josh REALLY Meant About Those Blackmail Comments
They’ve been making headlines for all the wrong reasons after My Kitchen Rules’ Josh called fellow contestant Amy a “sl*t”.
In response to the attention, the Seafood King called our own Kyle and Jackie O, revealing he was “blackmailed” by a producer.
“There was a particular interview where a producer so badly wanted me to discuss something I wasn’t comfortable to discuss to the point that we both exited a room, she followed us to the hotel, where the interview took place, took the lift with us and followed us to our hotel room, the entire way hounding, pleading with us, blackmailing us until she… and then she had the audacity to justify this behaviour as ‘doing her job’.”
When pushed on the matter he revealed it was about a “certain comment” on last night’s episode.
AKA, the episode where he calls Queenslander Amy the unthinkable.
However, he was hesitant to clarify his claim any further.
So when Amy joined us following the fallout, we asked her what he meant.
“What he’s referring to is that I would have preferred that we didn’t have to discuss this and that I didn’t want to talk about it on camera, so I asked him not to talk about it in his interview later on," she told us.
Which is where Josh’s claim comes into play.
“In the interview they were pushing both of us to make it a big thing on camera and make it a big moment, where as I didn’t think it was appropriate,” she said.
“You know, kids watch the show and that word doesn’t need to be bandied about.”
Listen below as she tells us what she really thinks about Josh after that comment and points out the moment everyone missed that should have stolen the show...
