Here comes trouble! Returning 'villains' Sophia and Romel ruffled plenty of feathers when they announced they would do anything to win on Sunday's season premiere of MKR: The Rivals
Nicknamed the 'Franken-team', season four's Sophia has joined season 10's Romel to form a 'Champions team' without their old partners.
Returning to the franchise with their eyes on the prize, Romel said: 'We can just clear the air and put it out on the table that everyone here around the table has a strategy.
'If someone cooks well you're going to score them on the food, of course, but for me to save my house, then I will do whatever it takes to make sure I'm okay and everyone in my house is okay.'
'What's the point of cooking? That's very questionable': Newcomers Kerry and Kaylene accused Sophia and Romel of 'cheating' and being 'nasty'
