The Renovators – Good Result But The Elimination Challenges Are Unfair
The key holder challenges are unfair. How do you compare a lounge/dining room to an outdoor garden?
Also the challenge sleighted towards the sitting keyholder. Tonight at the half done house with Peter versus Sam it was another team challenge. Props to Peter for playing strategy and picking Natalia and Keenan to stop them from giving Sam ideas about the garden. Also he admitted leaving Jason on her team because he had a busted knee.
Sam definitely had the tougher brief, she had to fix a deck, fill holes, take out plants and re-plant and bring in a mountain of soil. Also she was dealing with getting a lot of material up a very small side passage. I don’t blame Peter for not allowing her to bring it the dirt though the house, he would not have been able to get his work done, also it would have made a mess.
Sam was cracking up, but she was unrealistic. She sent Jason off with a long list of things to collect and said be back in 30 minutes. That was impossible, he was gone for two hours, she was shitty with him, and also told him to paint the wood faster.
By the way if you are wondering where August was, apparently once you have won the keys to your house the contestant does not have to be involved in these challenges. Not sure the logic of this. This means they have the advantage of having more time to work on their houses. It will also mean the last team up for elimination it will be an individual challenge.
Peter’s room was stylish, however I have to agree with Peter Ho the step that goes up to the dining room and kitchen has disaster written all over it. Also the living area is quite small considering it is a three bedroom and two bathroom house. Maybe he should have extended out. However that size is normal in the area.
It was a good result that Peter won. He does have a polarising personality however he has been one of the stand out competitors, also Sam has had very few highlights in the series. In fact the only one in recent history was the decoration of the wall.
