They're the self-proclaimed fussy eaters who have been labelled rude and annoying, but Sydney "Spice Girls" *Jessie Khan *and *Biswa Kamila * insist they're not all bad.
In fact, the girls, below, told _AAA Weekend _that a lot of their "brutally honest" commentary on My Kitchen Rules had been taken out of context and was not said in spite.
"We were just having fun and mucking around, and the next thing you know it portrayed us as being out to get people, but we weren't," Khan said. "We didn't go in there thinking 'Oh we're going to beat everyone, we're so competitive'."
Kamila added: "They do show the negative bits but we also say the positive bits where it's been edited (out)."
Asked why they entered the cooking competition when they're so open about the list of foods they dislike, their answer was simple: they just love food.
"Food is our passion, it's what we live and breathe for," Kamila said. "People just take everything so seriously and I'm pretty sure chefs who cook for people in restaurants have their likes and dislikes too."
Viewers have also jumped on the "haters" bandwagon, with many labelling the girls' comments as rude and unnecessary.
But despite some claiming that they are putting on an act for the cameras, the duo maintain they're just being true to themselves.
"It doesn't bother me what they say, because that's the way we are," Kamila said. "People that know us, they know that we joke around a lot and we'd never say things meaning in a hurtful way."
"If people have their opinion of us like that, there's nothing we can say but just take it easy because it is a reality TV show," Khan added. "You can't get to know a person after watching an hour of TV every day."
Khan and Kamila will tackle the heat of the kitchen in Monday's episode, which airs at 7.30pm on Seven/GWN7.
