The Renovators – Did Kathy Cheat?
The Renovators IS like Masterchef Australia, the producers appear to bend the rules at whim, and there is no consistency in enforcing them.
Tonight was a cracker because if the rules had been enforced Kathy would have been going home. Brendan in his pre-challenge locker room pep talk specifically said they were allowed the assistant of one person but only to lift things for them.
Kathy was seen to ask Nathan to drill two holes in a piece of wood and hang it from the ceiling. Now that to me is more than lifting. However no one said a thing.
Also Luke kind of hinted he went for Peter so he would be a good assistant, so I am sure there was some kind of non-verbal help going on.
Tonight the challenge was a panic room but this time it was not “Mr Hart what have you done?” but a clean room with a summer mural on the wall. They light blue team members had 60 minutes to give it a summer feel with the new Freedom Summer Range.

Jason J’s was criticised because the black furniture made it more like Winter, however they liked the continuation of the circles of the bird cages.
Sam’s courtyard was a great concept, but execution was a bit amateur hour. Robyn thought she nailed the colour palate. However Robyn said she was “unsure about the resolution of what was outdoor or indoor or where we are. I just can’t follow the resolution we are in”.
What does resolution mean?
Kathy did a beach apartment dining space.
Peter Ho liked the eclectic quality that she had brought to the room. He loved it. Robyn would have liked a much larger rug under the table. Were there larger rugs there?
Luke also used black furniture, however Robyn did not say anything about it feeling like Winter. However Robyn loved the dotted rug which was pretty cool. Robyn thought the room would have had a bit more harmony and a bit more scale.
In the end Kathy was the first to be safe. So clearly if you shizzle out a great room it is ok to cheat. Sam was eliminated. No crushing blow but I quite liked her no nonsense approach.
Do you think Kathy bent the rules by getting Nathan to make the swing?
