WA pair make MKR history
Chloe James and Kelly Ramsay, into the MKR grand final.

Chloe James and Kelly Ramsay scored themselves a place in the history books last night after they became the first WA team to make it through to the My Kitchen Rules grand finale.

The Perth pair, above right, were up against Queensland surfer dads Paul Bullpitt and Blair Tonkin, for the first of two sudden- death semi-final rounds, where just one point made the difference between who would proceed to the next stage and who would be sent packing.

The judges seemed divided when delivering their final scores, with some critiquing James and Ramsay's deconstructed trifle and others questioning Bullpitt and Tonkin's decision to pair kangaroo fillet with chocolate ganache.

Ultimately it was the girls who had the winning edge and were awarded the extra point, with judge Manu Feildel commenting the duo really pushed themselves with their three-course menu.

The dads both teared up when they realised their run on the reality quest was over but Tonkin was quick to praise his cooking partner in crime.

"I couldn't have done it with anyone else," he said of Bullpitt. "It's been an amazing journey."

As Melbourne twins Helena and Vikki Moursellas head into the kitchen tonight to face off against Adelaide mums Bree May and Jessica Liebich, James and Ramsay both agreed they would rather see the sisters come out victorious - if only for the chance to beat them at the grand finale.

"We need to put this rivalry to bed once and for all," James said.
