House Rules – Did Mel And Bomber Destroy Their House And Other House Rules Gossip
Well regular readers of this blog will know of House Rules rumours doing the rounds and Woman’s Day is now also reporting that there is something fishy about Mel and Bomber’s house.
The article states the house was in good condition when they brought it but it had deteriorated rapidly in a short time including holes in walls. The question is was this done by them or by the production crew to make the transformation more dramatic?
The article talks about the Candy and Ryan break up as well.
Online it states:
Mel and Bomber:
It appears the couple, who only met online six months ago, will do anything to dodge debt. Mel, 39, and Bomber, 45, are under scrutiny after it’s believed the pair “trashed” they’re cute Adelaide home so that they would be selected.
Woman’s Day can reveal that before the show started, their 110-year-old cottage was in perfect condition, according to a real estate listing from back in June last year.
But viewers where left stunned during week six of renovations when it came time for Mel and Bomber’s home to be transformed.
Instead of arriving to a family-friendly home, contestants were confronted with a near unliveable residence with massive holes in the wall, termite damage, no kitchen and junk from floor to ceiling.
“It doesn’t look that bad on the real estate website, I’m confused,” a fan of the show posted on Facebook.
Questions have also been raised about the $400,00 mortgage they couple say they have, when the sale price was just $331, 160.
Candy and Ryan:
Uh Oh! Look’s like there’s trouble in paradise for Candy and Ryan!
Despite putting on brave faces at a recent publicity event, insiders say it was all an act.
The competitive couple from Western Sydney are said to have faked their relationship and have since gone their separate ways since filming of the show wrapped up.
Clearly forgetting about their fake relationship, Ryan was even snapped enjoying drinks with another woman and not his long-time girlfriend Candy Stuart, who he met five years ago.
The 29-year-old electrician was snapped with the pretty brunette in Sydney’s West on May 3.
An onlooker said while the pair weren’t exactly flirting, Ryan appeared to be enjoying his evening as the twosome partied together with a group of pals.
Also in last week’s TV Week they talked to the Executive Producer of the show and here are some interesting facts:
Hidden Budgets – Co-Executive producer Maxine Gray says “Every single house requires a different budget and every zone also requires a different budget”.
“We don’t want the viewer to be fixated on budget.
“On this show you can’t compare apples with apples.”
“So, we decided to be very generic about the budget. Instead, we focus on whether they’re spending more or less than they’ve been given.”
“Overall it is roughly the same.”
As kitchen is always going to cost more then a bedroom.
Dodgy Workmanship – The contestants are left with the dodgy work. “These houses must be certified by the builder” says Maxine. “That doesn’t mean a bad paint job will be fixed up.”
Biased Judging – Some teams called foul on some of the judging in the competition. Among those who struggled the most were Carole and Russell.
“We got busted many times for our bathroom design,” Carole 53 complains. “And, yet in Victoria, Maddi and Lloyd did a vanity you couldn’t go to the bathroom in without being seen from the street. And, they go a better score than us! I was annoyed.”
