House Rules – Bomber Continues To Implode
Thank God Annajjj is back with the recaps and you get intelligent and funny commentary on House Rules:
Teams are still in gorgeous Townsville and I’ve just arrived here from Canberra today. It was 27degrees when I landed and given these teams were actually here several months ago it’s not surprising they are getting hot and bothered with this reno.
First up we go to Team Bomb who need to clear the deck so they can paint. Bomber yells a bit at the other teams and gets ignored so he starts pitching stuff off the deck in a total tantrum. Ryan tries to calm him down which, as with most three year olds, works only for a short while. Then Bomber explodes again and hurls more stuff off the deck in a rage. He tells us he’s cooked his brain and Mel comes to the rescue with a little homemade legionnaires hat for him. It’s almost bottle and nap time Bomber.
Meanwhile Team Snow White are designing a Sex-and-the-City WIR for Mads and the Fireman which seems to translate into loud horizontal stripy wallpaper which was never ever on SATC.
We get some ads for ‘Pool Party Barbie and Ken’ and ‘Beach Time Barbie and Ken’ and Mattel have done well to make these dolls look so life-like.
It’s been a couple of prankless hours so Ryan quickly downs tools and tries out the old fake nail through the finger. This fools absolutely no one except brainbox Lisa who then tries it out on Carole and manages to fool her too. Excellent work gice…can we move on now?
Snow White have painted bright blue all over the master bedroom and teamed it with hessian sacks hanging from the ceiling and for some reason these two keep telling us they’ve hit on a winning formula. Perhaps this is a prank too?
Suddenly it’s night time and 32 degrees and we get naked Adam, Ryan and Gapper; the good, the bad, and the ugly rolled up into one fleshy package. Adam reckons if he looks as good as Gapper at 70 he’ll be happy. Pretty sure Gapper is only in his 50’s.
Meanwhile Bomber is still sulking on the deck so his mother takes him home. Bomber had (self-diagnosed) heat exhaustion this morning she tells us, and anyone else think Mel probably devotes a fair bit of her time to talking Bomber down out of his tree? The following day Team Bomb are back on board with Bomber sweating and painting and Mel basically doing everything else. Bomber has arrogantly painted his part of the ceiling a different colour to everyone else and he’s quite ok with this.
McIrony appears in a blaze of colour to advise that some colour is good but too much is bad and again I’m distracted by how much I want to take a pair of scissors to the right side of her hair. Candy is now all worried about the colourfulness of her cushions and trots off to exchange them for bland textured cushions. Don’t forget to spin and look and spin, Candy.
In the ensuite the Cappers are removing bits from the legs of their vanity to disguise the fact that their floor slopes at about 15 degrees. Carole is having a midlife crisis or hitting menopause or something as she breaks down over the short shower head and wrong loo. Gapper gives her a pep up along the lines of “it’s the tropics so don’t give up’ and we should expect to see Gapper invited to give a TED talk any day now.
Jo arrives in the final hours to get in everyone’s way, Snow White get argy bargy with each other again and Adam and Lisa have a splash back disaster. However, I’m guessing they’ll probably be the ten this week – anyone have any other guesses? Anyone think the hessian/blue/stripy organic bedroom might take it out?
