Wife Swap Australia – Fat? Oliver You Are Not In Great Shape Yourself.
Not sure why Oliver Biecker was so anti-fat, it was not like he was packing a six pack. In fact I would describe his body as blancmange. Also their anti-junk food mantra was weird, everything they dished up was processed and no fresh fruit or vegetables were sighted. Also when are german sausages coming out of a jar NOT junk food?
The Dedes who they swapped with had four kids and twelve pets and a lot of clutter. However they appeared happy. Christine provided a little bit too much information when she said her husband Martin was like a donkey “hard working and well hung”. Regardless of size he did seem like a nice bloke and he did the cooking even making a variety of meals to cater for the kids tastes.
The house is pretty messy, not helped by the twelve pets with some defacating on the floors.
However the Bieckers were polar opposites with Oliver who has some weird personality traits. The kids were not allowed to touch walls, or the cars nor are they allowed to play doh or paint in the house.
Oliver’s weirdness continued with him not offering Christine any dinner and then he ran off to bed saying he had a sore throat.
Phuong over at the other house raised with Martin that she thought the three eldest kids were overweight and told Martin, and he said she was rude. Martin then told the kids and they unleashed. The eldest screamed “there is nothing wrong with us” and said “when your kids grow up they are not going to like you at all.” I think there was an element of truth in that.
Phuong burst into tears saying it was really scary, she did not get that what she said was hurtful. Her and Oliver appear to live in their own little bubble.
It was no surprise that when Christine made the rule changes it was about making the house more relaxed, and the kids were able to touch the walls and doors, and she set up a drawing table. She also brought in some guinea pigs.
Oliver was told he would have to cook, and she mentioned that she did not eat the first night and he responded “you don’t look like you are going to starve”! He thought it was amusing. I wish she had had a go at him about he looked, and his taste in ties.
She also held a princess party for the two daughters who were loving eating all the junk food. Or maybe they were just happy to get some variety in their diet.
In the end the fairly easy going Christine cracked when she confronted him about his behaviour and he said “you are not a guest, but a wife replacement”. She left before the end of the swap. Oliver who has no insight thought it was because of her separation from her family not his cold and weird behaviour.
At the table it all fired up with both wives getting some barbs in. But I think Christine had the final and truthful say with “Youse are all fucked”.
However, neither really took much on board about what the other was saying. However Christine did seem to appreciate the full house clean Phuong did and the fact the kids were helping around the house more.
Phuong kept the drawing table but basically that was it the guinea pigs were sent back to where they came from.
