The Renovators – The Show Is A Little Unfair At Times
The Renovators appears to be struggling in the ratings with only 407,000 viewers last night. Ok it was going up against The Block finale but it is not good.
It is a pity as last night’s episode where they had to build the lego tower was quite entertaining.
Network Ten announced last week they were pushing ahead with a second season. I won’t be surprised if they kill it off after this season has finished.
However it would be great to see a second season as the show really has some positive aspects to it, the downside is it is a little bit confusing and at times unfair.
The Green Team won tonight as the team who had done the best/most on their house over the week. It was a no brainer they had done the most work they had a working bee with all the rest of the contestants on their site for a day.
Conversely one of the teams that landed in the bottom two was the khaki team (beige) had part of the week with only Nathan on the team. Suzanne had only been on the team a day so was unable to do much work.
At least we now know what happens when a team gets to one person there is a challenge and the team leader gets someone from another team.
Suzanne is a little bit of a princess she complained ” I feel like I have had no input into the house what so ever,”. She had onely been in the sixties suburban house for about five minutes.
Nathan who is not one of the great communicators just grabbed a tool and started working. I think he is now having second thoughts about picking her.
After the shock exit of Fiona due to her health issues,I had been hoping they would bring Tina back. However as @smauge said they didn’t replace Ali when she quit in a huff from the blue team.
The blue team only have two members but they are really hard workers so avoided elimination tonight.
If any of the light blue team, who are renovating the inner city terrace are eligible to vote in the City of Sydney elections, it is unlikely they will be voting for Clover Moore. they were delayed in getting their development application, and then they had to wait to get their construction certificate.
They must be at least three weeks behind the other teams. Theoretically they should have been up for elimination but that would have been unfair.
The orange team are the team who will be competing in the elimination challenge tomorrow. They landed there because of problems with the deck. It was not constructed up to standard. However that was code for we cannot put the khaki in another elimination challenge.
The orange team are entertaining – today’s issue was the friction between Peter and Kim. She said she had been told to finish the deck by yesterday, and Peter just stared straight ahead not saying anything. Had Peter told Kim to cut corners? Or was she trying to blame him for her lack of knowledge in how to build a deck to a high standard?
There must have been an arguement between the two as Bob said it happened yesterday was over now. Why weren’t the cameras there a barney between Kim and Peter would be ratings gold to see the fear and loathing in St Peters.
I am starting to get some favourites. I like Lisa from the orange team, Jason J and Kennan from the light blue team. Loving Michael and Jarrod and I think Michael is a real chance of winning. Natalia and Christie are also my favourites.
Conversely Melissa is bugging the crap out of me. How many times did she mention Harrison her child in her two minutes camera time, and who wants to inspire their child to be a renovator.
However she is 26 years old and currently owns three homes, so clearly very driven.
Tomorrow night the orange team goes up for elimination in a panic room challenge, and it looks very messy indeed. Who would you like to see eliminated?
