Nev Groves from Perth got the tattoo which reads 'MKR 2016' to memorialize this wild ride chance to showcase his cooking prowess along with his partner Kell Griffiths.

'It’s for the overall experience, that’s what we did it for,' he said in a previous interview with AAA Weekend. 'Those people who go to the Olympics, if they don’t win gold they still often get a tattoo. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience so I am proud to get a tattoo to mark that.'

Kell also plans to get the same tattoo on her ankle and other contenders wish to follow suit.

Broadcast on the Seven Network, My Kitchen Rules is a cooking show that was initially aired in 2010. It was an offshoot of the network's successful MasterChef Australia.

The duo who are dubbed as the 'battlers' are currently on the show's chopping block. Their performance in the first instant restaurant competition didn't fare so well. In the interview after the show, Nev and Kell said they are not ready to exit the reality show yet.

Whether or not they bring home the bacon, I must say, you Nev have definitely endeared yourself to MKR's followers with your MKR tat. That's a prize not often won.
