The wannabe chef from Victoria, who was voted out of the cooking reality television show alongside partner Carla Mangion, insisted that they are kind people despite the controversy they caused when they strategically voted out two other contestants.
Carr told AAP: "Carla and I aren't sneaky people. We're actually just lovely people.
"When we voted strategically against Emma and Andrew, the first thing we did the following morning was go up to them and say, 'We gave you a one'. We were totally honest with them. Anyway, it makes good television.''

Carr added that he and Mangion have received a lot of criticism about their food online, but he is not bothered because he had no cooking experience before going on My Kitchen Rules.
"Occasionally when I go on the forums there's people saying that we can't cook,'' he said. "I just sit back and think, 'If you only knew what I think of my own cooking'.''
Carr also revealed that the duo didn't enter My Kitchen Rules to get rich, saying: "When we entered the competition we weren't there to win the money. We were there for a great experience, to travel the country, to learn about food and to make new friends.''
