The Renovators – The Kids Room Challenge
So August finally had to do some work himself, and he was finding it difficult. He had to assemble a kitchen back at the Marrickville shop, and he was blaming Natalia for a missing part and instructions. However in a later scene he has the instructions in his hands.
I was perplexed by the sewrage issue at the Parramatta Weatherboard (green team), it appeared to be an unexpected expense, but the explanation made it appear that it was a regulatory thing. Keenan said the old pipes have to be replaced, he did not say they were broken. If it was a requirement why wasn’t it known at the beginning of the renovation?
The fibro shack had real estate agents come in, and told them they could expect between $550,00 and $600,000 for it. This would be a top end price for Blacktown if you look at houses on Domain. But then real estate agents love talking themselves up so you sign on the dotted line with them. If they do achieve that price, the key holder to that house would have a good chance of winning. (Please do not discuss auction prices on this thread, go to the spoiler thread)
Luke had a “I wish I could tell you what I really think” expression on his face as he was talking about the drama of getting the huge LG fridge into the inner city terrace. It would not fit and they had to take the fridge doors off. However he said “We can’t do it now as we are due at the warehouse for a challenge” he was not happy and frustrated by it all.
Once they arrived at warehouse, the challenge was to turn a white room into a kids room. However it was not until after they had completed the challenge were they told children would be the ones voting, and the room with the highest vote would be winning the four tradesman for 48 hours.
A quick rundown on the challenge:
- Natalia and Nathan got into the theme by painting their walls a baby poo colour. They were aiming theirs squarely at the judges style, so were not happy when it turned out to be a vote;
- August was overly ambitious with his toy soldiers theme and in the end there was only one toy soldier, however his room was nicely designed;
- Peter had a disaster with his paint mixing, apparently he has never done it himself, and had to change from his rubiks cube design walls to just straight lilac with some Jackson Pollock like flicks on them;
- The weatherboard did an indoor cubby house which was going to be popular, also Melissa tried to gain some votes by yahooing at the kids;
- The navy blue boys were making their fantasy room complete with a huge TV; and
- The light blue boys (inner city) worked harmoniously together to produce a nice unisexed bedroom.
The top three were navy blue boys, light blue boys, and the green team. It was no surprise the green team won.
What I can’t work out is this is the final week, the finale will be next Sunday, so logically there must be an elimination each night this week.
