My Kitchen Rules brings us a smorgasbord of characters tonight as the seventh season launches after the 2016 Australia Open tennis.

WorkPac's very own FIFO miner Alex and his best mate Gareth are representing Queensland, affectionately dubbed the Miner Diners.

The Miner Diners hope to transition from the mining sector to the restaurant business and say despite their blue collar day jobs, they won't be serving up "pub grub".

"We have been saving money from our jobs in the mines so that we can open something of our own and we’re kinda hoping MKR will help fast track it. Like a bar and grill type of atmosphere, where you meet your mates and serve food that we like cooking," said Alex.

Alex and Gareth love Asian cuisine, roasting meats and and describe food as "a bit of an artwork".

The competition in the kitchen is fierce and the boys come up against the show's villain but with the MKR theme, "real people real food" our Aussie miners are as genuine as you get.

In support of Alex and Gareth's culinary adventure, WorkPac is bringing you a month of food content as we follow the boys on MKR.

We'll be serving up WorkSnacks, lunchbox ideas for tradies, summer BBQ recipes, healthy food solutions for FIFO workers, bite-sized nosh for the footy season and beer-based dishes.

To follow Alex and Gareth's My Kitchen Rules story, tune in to Channel 7 at 7:30pm tonight and subscribe to the WorkPac blog and Facebook page.
