A story about her racy past being brought up seven years after the fact, has been “the worst possible thing” for one half of the Remuera sisters duo eliminated from My Kitchen Rules NZ last night.
Katrina Dunlop and Natasha Gorrie were described by fellow contestants as the snobby sisters from Auckland in this season of the cooking show, but failed to make the cut and were eliminated in last night’s episode.
On Sunday, a story broke that revealed Katrina Dunlop, 27, had been paid to pose in hundreds of hardcore pornographic photos seven years ago, published in the explicit porn magazine NZX and on the pay-to view website NZX Online,
Having bought a house at the age of 20, she was strapped for cash and took the porn photo job.
She did three saucy porn shoots, at various Auckland locations under the name K*Leigh, posing alongside another woman in a beach setting, Fairfax reported.
It is understood TVNZ did not know about the hardcore porn photographs until late last week and don’t screen for such things when interviewing contestants.

It was really hard to have that dragged up,” an emotional Katrina said.
“I was so naive, I was 20. To have it dragged up at this time is the worst possible thing.”
She hoped it would help young women understand the permanency of photos on the internet.
“I hope it could be a lesson for young girls, whatever you do when you’re young it can come back to bit you, even years down the track.”
Natasha supported her sister, saying the photos should have stayed in the past.
“It was so long ago, she’s changed a lot since then as a human being.”
Speaking about the competition, Natasha said the sisters really thought they could win.
They had studied and practiced recipes between eight and 10 hours each day in the lead up to the competition.
