Jess and Felix out, My Kitchen Rules gatecrashers in

JESS and Felix were eating their words more than their guests were eating their food on My Kitchen Rules tonight.

The Perth mates were sent packing, coming shy of Harry and Christo's score by just one point.

After joking about being the third judge and her no-holds barred critiques of the other teams, interior designer Jess admitted to being a bit too cocky at the dinner table.

No amount of organization or a detailed action plan could save the duo from strange flavor combinations.

The other teams were expecting perfection, but were met with a belly flop after Jess and Felix served up undercooked pork belly.

 "You know what I love is when there are two or three ingredients on the plate; simple food where everything can shine. It didn't tonight," judge Pete Evans said.

"You needed time; you rushed this out. This pork needed at least another half hour if not an hour."

The deflated pair tried to rally with their main course, but could do nothing to fix their crucial mistake of choosing to confit duck breast instead of leg.

 "I think you've got one thing stuck in your head -  you want to impress," judge Manu Feildel said.

"You've just put far too much on one plate. I feel like I've got entrée, main, dessert, cheese and a glass of red wine on the same plate."

Evans called it the worst dish he'd eaten in the competition so far.

Clearly shattered by two rounds of negative feedback, Felix and Jess persevered with their mint slice dessert.

And luckily for them, Evans declared it the best dish of the night.

"It's simple; it's uncomplicated," he said.

"The flavours went together. I think it was an exciting little dessert."

In downtown Perth, the judges delivered their scores and the final blow to Jess and Felix's hopes of staying on the show.

After the elimination, the first instant restaurant group joined the second for the "surprise" introduction of three gatecrasher teams.

Feildel announced the teams with the three lowest scores - Harry and Christo, David and Corinne and Chloe and Kelly - would have to cook again in another instant restaurant round with the three new teams.

Tomorrow night, the new round of instant restaurants will begin with the first dinner hosted by NSW gatecrashers Carly and Tresne.
