Sausage king fails to sizzle
Dan and Steph Mulheron.

The writing is on the wall for *Perth *'s My Kitchen Rules mother-daughter duo *Candice * and *Lisa Clarke *.

On last night's episode, Queensland husband-and-wife team *Dan * and *Steph Mulheron *landed an overall score of 58, just one point ahead of the Clarkes, who are sitting at the bottom of the leaderboard on 57.

The former *Busselton * beauty queens' fate will be decided on Monday night when "domestic goddesses *" Joanna Stirn *and *Jenna Jaede *take to the kitchen to prove they are not just all talk.

Despite being a self-proclaimed "sausage king", Dan didn't include his signature homemade sausages on the menu, with the couple instead serving up a confit salmon for entree and cherry cola braised pork belly for the

main.

While the entree was a near- perfect hit with judges *Pete Evans *and *Manu Feildel * - who both scored it nine out of 10 - the main dish didn't have the same impact, with Feildel admitting he was not a fan of the cherry cola flavours and Evans saying it was "disappointing".

The main saw the couple earn their lowest combined score from the judges of five out of 20.

The lovebirds then pinned their hopes on Steph's "decadent" brownie with ice-cream dessert to save the day - but it failed to hit the mark.

Again getting low scores from the judges - a three from Evans and a four from Feildel - the sludgy ice-cream, which was meant to include cookie dough pieces, was instead served on a bed of cookie dough. Evans labelled the dessert as "too sweet", while Feildel questioned serving the slab of cookie dough.

While the Mulherons managed to avoid landing the lowest overall score, which sees them saved from elimination next week, the pressure is on for cupcake queen Jaede and mother-of-two Stirn to perform.

In another ratings coup for Seven, My Kitchen Rules continues to rule the Australian TV landscape.

Wednesday night's episode, which saw NSW personal trainers *Luke Hines * and *Scott Go * *odin * *g * land four perfect 10 scores from the judges, was the most-watched episode of the cooking series so far.

It brought in 2.106 million viewers in the five city metro market (peaking at 2.505 million) and a whopping average of 3.069 million viewers including regional areas.

In Perth, the show was number one with 287,000 tuning in.

Dan and

Steph Mulheron landed an overall score of 58, just one point ahead of the Clarkes.
