Guest Post: House Rules – What Carole and Russell Are Still There
House Rules continues to be stretched out so the reveal will occur Wednesday night and the final on Sunday night. Annajjj recapped this episode to keep our enthusiasm going for the show:
It’s wall-gate time and after a week of promotion we’re straight into it. Ryandy have had a little think and decided they don’t want to change their plans to accommodate the Cappers yet again. Meanwhile the Cappers have decided that they are completely entitled to change their minds as many times as they want to get their zone perfect regardless of whom they have to screw over to do it.
Candy tries desperately to get her point across, getting more agitated as Carole refuses to listen. Carole can’t understand the fuss. Surely everyone should just do as she commands? Finally Candy snaps and drives off in a rage leaving Ryan to watch as Gapper directs his builders to build a half wall. Honestly Ryan. Grow a pair and just order your own builders to build back up the other half of the wall. That’ll show those nasty Cappers.
Instead Ryan stands around in tears while McFlurry bounces back over to provide some advice. I’d like to take this opportunity to state that I have never ever wanted to slap anyone as badly as I want to slap McFlurry right now. She clambers over the half wall and gets right up in Ryan’s face.
‘The biggest challenge’ she starts, ‘is you need to roll with the punches’. Well that makes perfect sense. In Mcfuckwit World.
Ryan tries to explain his distress to her. ‘I understand I really do’ says McFlurry who really doesn’t. ‘Roll with the punches and make gin and tonics’ is her final piece of advice. Ryan and I wear the same expression for the next 30 seconds.
Next up is a very small segment of Lisa just to remind us there are more than two teams featured tonight. She runs into Candy who is trying to calm down and Lisa advises her to do some shopping therapy.
Back at the house Ryan is forced to reopen his doorway and Carole tries to engage him but he blanks her. ‘Well this was bound to happen’ says Carole philosophically, ‘because everyone knows I’m a complete controlling cow’. Candy returns and is annoyed with herself for letting the Cappers get to her. Don’t worry Candy. They got to all of us.
The following day, to Australia’s endless distress, Candy decides she should apologise to the Cappers. Noooooo! Carole is impressed with the apology. ‘There’s not a lot of people in the world who would do that’ she tells us. Irony meet Carole.
Although everyone is now friends again, apart from the Cappers and the rest of Australia, Gapper decides it’s fine to throw his weight around a bit with the other males. I’d be keeping a slightly lower profile right now Iggy. Does anyone else wonder if the Cappers are watching this tonight and thinking ‘uh oh we’re really screwed now’.
Back to the reno, briefly, and there is a lot of green going into the bathroom. Chester! appears to warn the teams that their plaster is wet. Then we are into the traditional last night painting frenzy but first Ryandy bring in bouncy balls for the teams to play with. Gapper can’t quite get the hang of it and looks like he is energetically humping his ball.
Wallpaper is going on the ceiling and on the walls and there is a plug for Woolworths Insurance who are providing some green bags of food. Then Gapper and Ryan disco dance a bit and Candy tells Ryan she loves him. Twice. Reveal tomorrow? Probably.
