The Renovators – Another Renovator Bites The Dust
How many plants died for this challenge tonight? Tonight the elimination challenge was to create a vertical garden wall and plants were being shoved without much care or regard onto a wall and other spaces.
I also could not work out why Peter was signalled out for having the plants still in plastic pots, what was he meant to plant them in? There was no soil only concrete.
If Peter had been eliminated Sam would have been handed the keys to half done house without even being in the challenge. After being picked by August to re-enter the competition she was able to go home for a few days to pack, and therefore avoid this challenge. I am unsure about how fair that is to be honest.
The elimination was between the people on the light blue team, Peter and the navy blue team. The only person who thought the challenge was in her comfort zone was Cathy.
Quite frankly if I was Kathy I would have the shits about being eliminated instead of Jason J as his vertical wall was shocking. Hers looked very stylised, but was deemed not to have enough green space on it. However Jason’s just looked like he had a brain explosion in is space.
Natalia looked perplexed when she cast her eye over the projects and compared them.
Jason looked like he could barely use a drill when he was getting frantic in the last ten minutes of the challenge. No wonder Luke said he had not wanted Kathy to be the one to go home.
Having said all that I was glad Kathy was the contestant that got the flick.
At the Weatherboard it was pouring down with rain so they were all stuck indoors, August looked particularly unenthused by Melissa’s pep talk and being there.
Keenan deserves the keys to the weatherboard as he has done the most work on the house. I was also reading somewhere that Keenan’s teenage daughter was mortified that some of her friends thought her father was hot. However she should know she would be more mortified if her father found some of her friends hot.
Also Robbo a commenter went to four of the open houses yesterday this is what he thought of them:
Saw 4 houses at open yesterday. Heaps of notices prohibiting photos and security guards there. 1.5 hours open for each one instead of usual .5 hour.
Glebe Terrace. First class job. Great workmanship and fantastic galley kitchen. Don’t know who would buy though as no car space and absolutely no storage. Nowhere even for a couple with a minimal amount of clothes. Definitely no kids.
Weatherboard Parramatta. Disappointing. Looks like they ran out of money. Bar fridge in kitchen. Walk through wardrobe to bathroom. Concrete was good but paintwork was rough.
Sixties Suburban Castle Hill. Very disappointing. Concept was good but job was not finished and workmanship in places was poor. Painting was extremely rough. Landscaping not done at back and desk in study nook had rough finish. You could not write on it. Maybe ran out of time/money.
Fibro Cottage Blacktown. Wow. This house had wow. Full house of people.This a is a clear winner. Immaculate workmanship and the house is extremely well laid out and liveable. Landscaping done to perfection. Talking to agent and it seems Michael may have held on too keys. Agent contract with Ch10 prevents them from talking about expected price etc but the agent believes they have the winner especially as it was the cheapest house giving them a big advantage in percentage terms.
Only items I could find issue with were just one bathroom and two bare light bulbs in central passage.
Obvious clear advantage to houses being done by a carpenter rather than a concreter, demolition expert or stylist. Michael and Luke were standouts for workmanship.
Still to see Half-done and Shop as open scheduling mad it impossible to see all six in one day.
