House Rules – The Queensland Reno Kicks Off
Maddi and Lloyd have a Queenslander that is on a slope but that was not the biggest problem as the contestant’s from the southern states were struggling with the heat. But they were pretty happy that they finally found out that Lloyd was an aviation fire fighter as his uniforms were the only things left in his wardrobe. Also a Cowboys Staff handbook was strategically left on the ironing board so that outed Maddi.
Carole and Russell got to pick their and the other teams zone.
They gave the kitchen and guest bedroom to Adam and Lisa. Brooke and Grant got the master bedroom with walk in wardrobe and half the deck, Bomber and Mel got the entry, dining room, laundry and deck, Carole and Russell took the living room and ensuite, and Candy got the bathroom, hall and study to Candy and Ryan.
Adam and Lisa were going to have to sleep in a tent until Carole and Russell offered to swap with them. They declined so Carole got to look like a saint but without the sacrifice.
The house rules were:
1. Give us a laid back coastal paridise
2. Add a splah of the Bahamas
3. Furnish our kitchen with a dream island
4. Layer in texture instead of colour
5. Keep it organic.
Maddi on leaving told them to renovate keeping in mind of the tropical conditions. Speaking of tropical conditions the Producers got a gratuitous shot of the couple in their swimmers on the beach.
Russell and Grant were demarcating over space for their ensuite and walk in wardrobe. Brooke came in and told Grant to not to back down. He did and Brooke said if we lose don’t blame me.
But first the absestos had to be removed from the bathroom. When work started again for the demolition it looked like Lisa and Candy were going to hit each other on the heads as they struggled to take out a wardrobe.
Another reno and it was another injury for Bomber. He scraped the ceiling and cute his skin. It was a one inch cut but he was off to the medic groaning. As Ryan pointed out he had a cut that was ten times bigger and he did not limp off seeking medical attention.
The episode ended with Russell and Carole rekindling their love but thankfully this was G rated and just involved clinking of champagne glasses.
