GIRLS rule for the second year in a row with mates Leigh Sexton and Jennifer Evans winning the My Kitchen Rules grand final tonight.
Leigh the florist and Jennifer "the princess" can rightly call themselves the queens of the kitchen after out cooking fellow South Australians Nic Mazzone and Rocco La Bella.
"I didn't think we'd get in, let alone win," Sexton said.
The girls scored a near-perfect 58 out of 60, including four perfect 10s from the judges, to comfortably beat the boys' score of 52.
"The best team did win the competition. They deserved it," said Mazzone.
The Adelaide cooks won $250,000 for their marathon effort of plating up 100 dishes across five courses.
Mirroring their progress in the competition, Leigh and Jennifer landed softly with their entree and peaked later in the evening whereas Nic and Rocco came roaring out of the gate with their seared tuna entree.
Taking on dessert king Rocco with her chocolate hazelnut cake, Leigh battled to the end but failed to correctly temper white chocolate for her disc toppers.
But it was a small element to leave out and the girls' overall quality and creativity won the night.
