Ballarat's Worst Kitchen: final judging begins

BALLARAT’S top five worst kitchens have been inspected and judged. 

The Ballarat’s Worst Kitchen competition, the most popular in The Courier’s history, attracted more than 102 entries

The five finalists — Marcia King, Ramsay and Erin Beacham, Tegan Johnson, Marg Maher and Monica Leahy — opened up their homes yesterday in the hope their kitchen would be deemed the worst.

Realistic Kitchens’ Malcolm Alexander said choosing a winner was going to be tough. 

“Everyone has a story and they’re all deserving people who all need new kitchens,” he said. The winner, to be announced on Tuesday, will receive a Realistic Kitchens renovation.  The prize includes a kitchen renovation of up to $20,000 supplied by Malcolm Alexander’s Realistic Kitchens, including taps and sinkware, door selection from Polytec, hardware and fittings from Hettich Australia, benchtops and splashbacks by Laminex and a range of Modena appliances.

Ballarat’s Worst Kitchen had been The Courier’s most successful online photo competition to date.
