The Real Pod: On MAFSNZ, Drag Race UK and the unhinged glory of My Restaurant Rules

The Real Pod assembles to dissect the week in reality television and real life, with special thanks to Nando’s.

The holy trinity is finally reunited on the holiest of days, Duncan’s birthday, to discuss the highs and lows of the week in reality. Married at First Sight NZ came crawling to an end with the final vows, after a week of jet ski drama, tired old boys and the return of Ling and Zing. Jono and Ray had a huge fight at a café, Anna wore an interesting bat tie during an emotional scene and Jordan showed off his many, many troties.

There’s also My Restaurant Rules NZ, which too us to Lyttleton by way of Birkenhead for some more classic Kiwi dinner party banter. Tyson continued to be the shabbiest chic around, Daniel had a lemon-based meltdown and PJ and Rob proved to be the biggest sweethearts at the table. Pity their salsa was so salty. All this, and a Baga Chipz on Drag Race UK.
