Guest Post – House Rules – The QLD House Reveal
Thanks Annajjj for another great house reveal recap:
Reveal night! From the promos this definitely looks like the best reno yet. Let’s get straight into it.
2 hours left to go and it’s still bloody hot, (lots of unnecessary shots of people sweating) and Gapper tells us he is giving 110% and really? Why not 115%? Or 274%? Crush and Ryan think they’ve nailed the HR brief in their bathroom and Snow Whites are equally confident with their master bedroom.
Over to Adam and Lisa who are stressing about their splash backs and don’t want to be ‘intense’ again this week. Barbie and Ken are packing to come home while back at the house Jo is checking out the hessian in the bedroom. It’s…..different, says Jo diplomatically. Yep it’s organic alright, says Grant proudly and he is pretty sure everyone else is jealous that they didn’t think of it first. Cut across to the teams telling us it’s ‘different’, ‘un-yoo-shual’ and ‘completely awful’ and there is your answer Grant.
We begin the countdown, 90 minutes, 10 minutes, 30 seconds, Carole throws out Bomber’s light but he rescues it. Ryan thinks Gapper is the hardest working senior citizen ever and Grant thinks Gapper is doing great for 107 years old and FFS the guy is only in his 50’s. And 50’s Is. Not. Old. People. Horn blows, tools down and hugs all around. The Cappers are briefly nice to each other.
Teams disappear and a pair of hipster purple pants arrive at the house with Joe tucked snugly inside them. Joe and Wendy enter the house and Joe looks a bit stoned but manages to almost hide it. Both judges love the kitchen and guest room. Moving back into the entry they hate the light and what a shame Carole didn’t smash it for Team Bomb when she had the chance. The dining room is too modern and there is a weird Rastafarian hat hanging in the laundry which no one else seems to notice.
Into the ridiculous master bedroom where the potato sacks, SATC wallpaper and unfinished deck are all given the comments they deserve. Back into the living room and Wendy hates the ceiling fan but Joe actually likes it. Not for himself, mind you, but it’s a good fan for the great unwashed public.
The ensuite looks great as does the bathroom, hallway and study although the shelves are a bit crooked. Overall a really great reno. Well done gice.
Judges arrive at HQ to deliver their scores and Joe’s eyes are really red-rimmed now. No Idea magazine are apparently reporting someone on HR has been arrested for something…..just saying. Mind you anyone who puts any faith in what they read in No Idea deserves to be arrested themselves.
Candy and Gos: 8&9
Snow Whites: 6&7
Team Bomb: 6&6 – really? Lower than SW?
Adam and Lisa: 10 & 10 and hooray!
Mads and Lloyd arrive home and they are overwhelmed by their new kitchen. They seem to love every area of the house except the bedroom hessian and Walk-In-Shoe-drobe. So far this couple appear to have the best renovation.
Snow Whites: 6 which seems pretty generous considering
Team Bomb: 6 and really? Again with the low scoring?
Crush and Co: 8
Lisadam: 10 again!
Team Bomb are on the bottom of the leader board and they are also up next, therefore they don’t have to camp out. Ryan is about to volunteer his team when Brooke gets all snide and snarky and Ryan immediately withdraws. Adam and Lisa get to choose who goes ‘intense’ and they try to do the fair thing and pick next off the bottom of the leaderboard. Wonder if they’d have done this if the Snow Whites weren’t at the bottom??
Off to South Australia next, home of wine, churches, serial killers and bdd so nothing boring here. We’re told at the end of this renovation the lowest scoring team will be eliminated. Faites vos jeux!
