Thomas and Carla's kitchen meltdown

Controversial My Kitchen Rules team Thomas and Carla before being eliminated.

ONE of My Kitchen Rules' most controversial teams was given the boot tonight.

Melbourne's Thomas and Carla were the fourth team eliminated from the popular cooking show after suffering a complete kitchen meltdown.

The mates were easily beaten by Tasmania's Megan and Andy in the sudden death cook-off, in which the teams were asked to create dishes which showcased the key Queensland ingredients of Moreton Bay bugs, macadamia nuts and mangoes.

In the initial instant restaurant stage of the series, contestants are expected to score each other's dishes based on merit.

Thomas, a podiatrist, and Carla, a speech pathologist, earned the ire of many viewers and some of their fellow contestants after voting strategically in the instant restaurant elimination round to keep themselves in the competition.

Despite failing to impress hosts Pete Evans and Manu Feildel with their lamb koftas at their first instant restaurant, the pair decided to make the Middle Eastern dish again in tonight's cook-off.

As their Paneer cheese and macadamia koftas fell apart, so did the team with Thomas shouting "We're going home".

While their win-at-all-costs approach put them at odds with the judges, Feildel acknowledged Thomas and Carla had improved as cooks during their time on the show.

Tomorrow night, the remaining eight teams are asked to prepare a seafood banquet fit for a king.

My Kitchen Rules airs Sundays to Thursdays at 7.30pm on Seven.
