House Rules Kicks Off With A Fast Paced First Episode
House Rules kicked off last night with the news that not only do you get your dump house renovated but also if you win you get your mortgage paid off.
Many people including myself must have thought how they could make their house look really run down so they could get on the show if there is a season two.
Jemma and Ben who have a $540,000 mortgage and their house is the first to be renovated. Who knew houses in Perth were so expensive considering the house looked like to be on a main road opposite a car yard.
Even if they get a really bad reno it will still be better then what they had and the positive is they get the structural stuff done as well. Who cares if the colour in the living room is not to your taste that can be repainted. Anything will be an improvement for them as currently the bathroom and laundry were in the middle of the house.
Also their house appears to have been built on sand with just concrete poured on top it we get to see what they are going to do about that tonight.
Some people got easier rooms then others to renovate. The brothers have to do a kitchen first up and lucky for them the interior designer Carolyn Burns-McCrave pointed out that it was a big mistake having a sink next to the stove. She looks like she is going to be a sassy addition to the show.
By they way more shots of the builder Chester Drife please. Clearly he is a man who knows what to do with his hands.
We know that each room has a different amount of money assigned to it for their renovation but not what it is. Clearly the Queensland team will only get petty cash to do up the hallway and beauty room. Amy was not happy that she could not even expand the size of the beauty room. However the Tassie team were not going to compromise of their bathroom laundry.
It was a fast paced first episode and considering we will see the transformation quickly the show should engage viewers. At this stage Michelle is looking like she is going to the the series villain but these things always change over the course of the series.
Joanna Griggs was good as host not that she has had much to do at this stage but she is nice but commanding figure.
House Rules on Wednesday and Thursday night on SEVEN at 7.30pm.
