The Renovators – The Bloke Challenge
The challenge tonight was more Backyard Blitz then The Renovators, the contestant’s were split into two teams and they secretly re designed two suburban backyards for Jodie and Tanya’s husbands to have ‘their man cave’.
I have to say I would be happy to be on a reality show if it meant a team of people coming to sort out my backyard, as a lot of viewers would as well. Add in a tradesman who looked like Keenan and I would be a very happy camper.
Anyhow the teams only had six hours but a good budget of $7,500 to put some razzle dazzle on these suburban yards.
Lisa was looking particularly underwhelmed when she said “It was such a great idea. These fathers are going to be soo excited”.
Baz was doing better whipping up the excitement with the wives. “Do your husbands deserve this?”. What did he expect them to say “No, he is a bit of prick after he has had a few drinks,” of course they are excited.
Lisa is a bit of a space cadet, she left the trolley in the aisle at Bunnings, but she is likeable. She also forgot the potting mix and had to rush back to get it in the last 30 minutes of the challenge. Surprisingly she stayed calm and did not become hysterical.
The big BBQ’s were the centrepiece of the backyard, and Jarrad and Melissa chose a huge one that was bigger then kitchens in inner city apartments. Natalia was not impressed with the whopper she had to assemble and blamed Jarrad “that is what you get when you send a young guy to buy a BBQ”.
Baz was getting bolshie with Peter’s team about the pavers they were using and he was concerned about the quality of the tiling. He said to Peter “you’re a tiler are you happy with it?”, Peter gave him the death stare and said “I don’t usually do jobs in six hours.”
The father’s mates got to vote which one was the best backyard, and the gold team won. They think the huge BBQ brought it home for them. “Size does matter” said Baz.
Michael from the fibro cottage was picked as best worker, and scored the working bee. This is great for Jarrad and him, however unfortunately for them because of the nature of the challenge half of the contestants won’t be there because they are up for elimination.
