The Renovators – At This Stage I Presume Teams Stay As Is
Reports of The Renovators not returning for a second season continue to do the rounds, and in today’s Daily Telegraph they even reported the set being taken down.
Obviously they are waiting until the series is over before putting the nail in the coffin.
It is a pity as there are some great aspects to this show, but also some aspects that are unfair.
This is going to seem a strange example but tonights elimination episode was a prime example. The elimination challenge was between the orange team (Peter), the light blue team (Jason, Luke and Kathy), and the khaki team (Nathan and Suzanne). Is this unfair that the first part of the elimination challenge they get to stay in teams, theoretically meaning the smaller team is at a disadvantage.
Now obviously this did not happen tonight as Peter was safe first tonight, but that was because he is a design nut, for someone like Nathan he would have been in a mess from the beginning of the challenge. By doing it this way some teams have more intellectual, physical and creative capital.
I love it when Jason stuffed up on a light fitting he had at home said he was going to kick it when he got home. I don’t know why he was angry at the light it was him who had stuffed the year it was designed up.
It looks like the teams of one won’t be getting any new team members, as if they did they would have done it by now. However in fairness one team member should be moved from the light blue, and grey teams.
The second part of the challenge was a mosaic tiling challenge. Jason, Nathan, Luke, Kathy and Suzanne were slugging it out. Nathan finished first, and surprising Kathy who had never tiled before came in second. Suzanne finished last as she could not get her pattern right. She was in tears.
Part of that may have been because she was leaving Keenan, that is if the romance rumours are true.
