House Rules: Dear Brooke If You Are Legitimately Low Scoring Then Expect Some Legitimate Criticism
Another reality series and another team who feels that they have been burnt by social media. This time it is the Tassie Tigers Brooke and Grant who are not happy.
Brooke told The Daily Telegraph that the online bullie were horrible. She also defends her tactic of scoring low saying it was a legitimate strategy to stay in the competition.
If Brooke and Grant are going to use a controversial but legitimate strategy they must expect legitimate criticism about it.
She tells the Telegraph:
“Social media is going off (on us) but we’re staying off it because people are pretty horrible and it’s just bullying,” she says.
“People who know us, know we went in there to play the game and they know (what’s in) our hearts and that’s all that matters to us.”
Strong has been disappointed with her portrayal on House Rules , but concedes she sometimes struggled under the stress.
“I do have a strong personality but people need to remember you are under pressure and you don’t always think as clearly,” she says.
“You react to things differently and it’s a competition and anyone in that situation — if they’re a stubborn, driven person — then that comes to the fore. But I’m not heartless — I have a big heart.”
She also states she would do it all again to get the fantastic renovation which now enables the combined family of nine to live comfortably together. Maybe she should take comfort in the fact that those snarky online people don’t have the fabulous renovation that she has so she is a winner out of this after all.
