The Renovators – Not Happy, Not Happy At All
Tonight’s The Renovators episode had some real tension in it, because a few of the favourites were up for the chop. Also tonight they changed the challenge from the guessing the value of a house, and playing adult lego with foam re-jigging the said property. It was a good change.
The stress test broken into two components. The first one was to make a pair of curtains. They needed to be hemmed, skim the floor and cover the entire window. The first six to finish were safe, the other three had to go into the elimination challenge.
I liked this challenge as it should have given an advantage to the females in the competition, as a lot of them have been more ‘boy’ ones like wallpapering and banging in nails.
Suzanne and Sam were confident as they could sew, others not so much.
Jason J thinks he wrecked the sewing machine and gave up. His team mate Kathy was having issues screwing in the screws and also had to go through to part two of the challenge.
Peter is quite the multi-skilled is there anything he can’t do? He was the first to finish his curtains. Suzanne and Sam were not far behind.
Lisa was battling out with Bob for the last safe spot and she just missed out. She cried again and said” I wonder what you have in store for me.” And it was her worse nightmare – the flatpack.
She was not happy as she has not done a flat pack. Where does she buy her furniture? This challenge was just up Jason J’s alley and he did not want to be beaten by the girls. After that quote I thought he was a goner. Kathy was first to finish, which was unfortunate as out of the three I would have been happy for her to go.
Lisa was motoring and just got her hand up before Jason, however screws and many washers were left off and Baz reluctantly had to tell her to keep going. But it was no use as Jason had done his correctly and he was through.
Sam looked like she wanted Lisa to get through even though Jason was a team mate. Jason broke down sobbing, the judges got teary, clearly Lisa was very popular with the other contestants. Also she was popular with the viewers, she gave us some great moments on the show. She was not afraid to show her emotions and had a really kooky but engaging personality.
It was really disappointing to see her go, and for the first time I was hoping there would be a second chance round so she could return to the competition.
Peter her team mate was sobbing as they had a close friendship
On leaving she said “It’s very sad to leave my team mates Bob and Peter. The relationship that Peter and I had in the team, that’s what all the teams need to have. If you can have that with the last surviving person then you are going be indestructible.
“I am so excited to have everything that’s special back. I am really looking forward to getting my beautiful children and my lovely husband back. My family are very proud of all of my efforts on the show.”
If they had had a fan favourite category she would win it.
