The Renovators – Sometimes The Show Does Seem A Bit Unfair
Peter from the half-renovated house got ticked off by Baz Dubois about not supervising the damp tradie properly as he had not fixed the leaking down pipe as allegedly requested.
I was surprised Peter did not turn to him and tell Baz that he couldn’t supervise the damp tradie closely as he was always at The Renovators warehouse doing challenges.
Also why isn’t Peter been given another team mate? Is he going to get one? Nathan from the Sixties suburban received a teammate when he when he was the only one.
It makes it very unfair in both the renovating and the challenges, as it is hard to win the prizes if you are doing them by yourself.
Another thing that it is quite arbitrary who gets picked to win or lose on house inspection day.
It appears to always be the house with the most physically done to it. However in some weeks renovating did occur but there was just no huge impact or wow factor, hence you have no chance of winning. Barry is just impressed if there are tradies on the site. But seriously how can you get them working when the cameras turn up.
Also the light blue team were protected for a few weeks as they were unable to do much work due to the DA not coming through on the house. They should have been because it was not their fault, but it has now left them with a team of four and the other teams reduced to two, three and one.
The Fibro shack boys had bought plants to try and give an extra wow factor, but were criticised as they could not be planted yet and Brendan Moar said they would die.
Brendan asked if they had bought them because he had been coming out, the boys denied this. They navy blue team had also put up the extension frames themselves in the morning. Those boys are machines.
The Inner City Terrace were in a whole lot of pain again as they had to stop work on the extension as there was possibility of structural damage to the next door neighbours wall. An engineer came and suggested a solution.
No renovating show will ever buy a house in the inner city again. Will they even finish?
Kathy who I think was trying to talk the team up by saying they maybe able to buy a patch of land at the back of the property. However Baz queried why they had not been negotiating this while they were waiting for the DA to come through.
The Sixties suburbans had their extension put on and the judges were wowed. It looked good but what actual work had Nathan and Suzanne done that week?
Marrickville Shop had concreting done, and also they had changed the shop front. However they had done enough to be safe. I had a stickybeak at the house today it does not look that big.
The Parramatta wooden house’s extension had been put up as well. Barry was still concerned about the trench at the side. Keenan was also doing polished concrete floors. I was confused whether the concreting job was a good or bad job.
Fibro cottage and Sixties suburban were the top two teams this week with team khaki winning. They won two tradies for two days. The bonus prize was the power to pick which room that has to be fully completed by the next inspection day. They chose a bedroom.
Inner city errace landed in the elimination round. Kathy was not going to be Miss Popularity when the cameras stopped rolling as the reason they landed there was they had done nothing to acquire the patch of land at the end of their block. I also suspect they want to even the team numbers up a bit.
