The Renovators – No Surprise Which Team Won The Tradies
So the Inner City terrace team won two tradies for 48 hours? No surprises they were going to win something week as they have just started their renovations. Reality TV manipulated? No that can’t be right.
For the record I predicted this in last night’s blog post.
One of the criticism from the viewers about The Renovators is the lack of renovation that we are seeing on screen. However this criticism is also coming from the contestants as well.
Chris Georgiou told TV Week “You are left with a day and a half out of a week to renovate.” He also said “We [spend] 12 hours a week working on them, and you need 50 hours a week.”
This might explain why Peter from the half done house needed to hire a tiler, which is an area he is proficient in. They also got a carpenter in to finish the deck.
Brendan Moar the host went around the houses with Robyn Holt and Barry. He gave his thoughts on their landscaping. I did disagree with Brendan when he said no grass in the back yard of the St Peters house. Peter said all the real estate agents had said grass, and I agree with them. It will be a couple with a child or wanting to have a child and they will want grass. They won’t realise what a pain in the butt it is until after they move in.
They all gushed over how much demolition work the light blue (inner city terrace) team had done, and they had. The ceilings looked fabulously high, and I am can now see how good the house is going to be when completed.
The Blacktown fibro guys had another strong week, with a lot of work being done. However they were deluding themselves in thinking that damp patch on their ceiling was just some residual moisture.
The sixties suburban team just looks like they are floundering at the moment. There is no energy there. They were disappointed they were unable to paint the outside of the house and that they would have to wait until rendering had completely dried out.
Clearly when it comes to judgement day the teams like to try and give the greatest visual impact to avoid elimination.
The Marrickville shop has had a bit of work done. With Natalia doing the bathroom and kitchen cabinets. Brendan questioned them about their landscaping, and was impressed they had a plans drawn up, however they had not really settled on what they wanted to do.
The Parramatta weatherboard (green team) were criticised on a number of levels, firstly they were quoting low on their budget, Barry thought they were unrealistic. Also they had a trench between a fence and the house. Once the wall is constructed there will be limited access.
No surprise the light blue team won, and no surprise the green team are up for elimination. Melissa on hearing they were the worst team of the week immediately burst into tears. She is extremely irritating, however she doesn’t appear unpleasant.
Tomorrow night they have to do a panic room. I think Jason might struggle.
