The fourth season of the Australian competitive cooking competition show My Kitchen Rules premiered on the Seven Network on Monday 28 January 2013.[1][2]

Format Changes[edit]

  • Gatecrasher Round: Three additional "gatecrasher" teams entered the show after the instant restaurant round of Group 2. They competed against the bottom three teams from the remaining 10, in a third round of instant restaurants .
  • Comeback Kitchen: A number of teams were eliminated on more than one occasion. After their initial elimination, they were brought back through a "Comeback Kitchen" which saw teams compete for one remaining spot in the finals. Losing teams were "re-eliminated" from the competition. This challenge saw eliminated teams cooking meals to order for judge, Colin Fassnidge's restaurant 4Fourteen. Patrons paid for what they though the meals were worth and the winning or losing teams advanced or were re-eliminated.
  • Blind Tastings: For all Sudden Death Cook-Offs guest judges no longer knew who cooked which dish.
