MKR rival contestants romantically linked

FORGET First Dates or The Bachelor, it appears love may be blossoming on set of My Kitchen Rules between two rival contestants.

TV Week is reporting that things are heating up between Tasmanian truffle farmer Henry and Perth-based waitress Jazzey.

Fellow Sydney contestant Jess said the pair "got pretty serious" after they were "flirting" on set, the magazine reported.

Jazzey also revealed to the publication she wanted to "catch up" with Henry after filming for the show wrapped up.

"I haven't seen him since we finished filming but I definitely want to catch up with him," she told the magazine.

Henry, who is on the program with his sister Anna, told TV Week that his celebrity crush was Jennifer Lawrence but did not confirm any details of a relationship with Jazzey.

"Anna is very protective (of her brother)," Jazzey told the magazine.

"But it was actually to my benefit that Anna and I also became really close. She is definitely one of my best friends in the competition."

"I don't really have a type but I like someone who finds me funny - or at least gets my jokes."

This season of My Kitchen Rules is set to be full of controversies after an all-girl team was kicked off the set of the hit reality TV show after a simmering feud with two male contestants boiled over into a heated off-camera scuffle.

Production on the show was temporarily shut down while Channel Seven investigated the altercation in which sources said the contestants "crossed a line".

It is understood the two teams became embroiled in an off-camera scuffle at a hotel in Launceston after a day of filming last month.
