Anyone else watching? How ungrateful do they sound

Very very ungrateful.

It just seemed unrealistic to me that they would have been living in the 'shack' to begin with.  They now have a house that is now habitable.

They're not making any friends.  Everyone is going to be super picky over their work now.

Apparently the mum and her two boys only lived in it on weekends and school holidays.

I hope they don't expect any favours or help from the other teams. They were brutal.

I think I like the new English judge LLB or LB or whatever his name. He was kind of funny.

Obviously they are this seasons' baddies.  The tag fits them pretty well though!  :rolleyes:

Lack of grace and tact and pretty crappy house rules too, I mean, feminine sparkles??  What the crap?

I thought it was funny that the house owner, ( was that Nicole? ) seemed to think she absolutely knew 100% what "contemporary country" was, and no other interpretation was right.  Styles like that are open to interpretation!
They were so, so ungrateful, but it is disappointing if what a PP said is true and it isn't their fulltime residence.  Maybe if it was, she would have realised just how good she now has it with a brand new home!  
I thought the "Gold Coast Glamour Couple" would be my least favourite, but those two girls win that title!

They're both b**ches! FGS, there was no TOILET in there before!!!

And friend asks whether the owner likes something before ahe agrees with her. Like a puppy.

Fiona and Nicole were awful - pretty sure Fiona is the homeowner. Troy and Bec are also annoying, judges were just wrong.

In Sunday's episode they said she only lives there weekends because the shack was not a habitable structure, she rents in town during the week. The plan is for her and the kids to be there full time once it was a habitable structure.

I don't know if it is true or not but on a previous series it was rumoured that one of the couples also bought their 'home' specifically for the series.

It's a bit disappointing when I'm sure there would be couples with their real homes looking to upgrade like this.

If you go on a show like this you're taking your chances that you won't like everything or some of the finishes will be rushed, but either way, everyone ends up with something a lot better than what they started with and for free.

Those women have Claws and fangs!

I must admit that things werent perfect in the styling dept., but geez, she literally had a shack!  

When she said that they're not out to make friends, they already have some, I thought that's probably a good thing because you're not about to make any new ones.

I don't think homes that you have not permanently lived in should be eligible.

I was glad the older son was thrilled with his room and could see the effort made.  When Fiona started complaining about the room you could see him wanting to say, 'mum, did you see what we had before?  This is luxury."

#12 nasty snaugh

I think they've bought a few decorating / design magazines and now consider themselves experts.

I really REALLY feel for the twins

I have a MASSIVE dislike for bratty, entitled people. Fiona is so, so terrible

came on this site a few days ago to learn about baby stuff, but this show has me ranting!!
so ungrateful! I was yelling at the TV...
the new judges seem interesting, loved some of the comments (mirrors balancing on furniture? totally agree!) and can't wait to see what the houses are like once the contestants get to know each other :) oh! and this is literally the first episode where the judges have commented on the painting- it used to annoy me so much (esp. compared to the block) that people could have the worst painting skills, but because it was well planned they would get the points.

#14 Peanut

Posted 02 May 2017 - 10:37 PM

Let's face it, this is a reality TV show designed purely for drama and ratings. There are no real rules. In almost every season it's been quite obvious that some of the houses have been bought purely for the show. The Producers don't care, they only want the drama.

I know people say there is always 'one of those couples' but I don't think they could pay me enough to be as hideous as those 2 are. They can't forget the impact their behaviour can have on their children/employment etc.

Nope, these 2 are just ungrateful and clearly clueless cows.
You can't ask for something and then decide you hate it because you just look like a d*ck.

#16 Soontobegran

Oh LLB is awesome.
I watched him on UK Changing Rooms and another show which showcased his home and family ( forgotten it's name) and he is a really lovely person.

#17 Fresh Start

Posted 02 May 2017 - 10:49 PM

I can't believe they failed the twins for the bonus room. I'm glad they argued back on that.

#18 deedee15

Posted 02 May 2017 - 10:49 PM

And the thing is, in the end it comes down to a public vote, and when they screwed the boys over on the bonus points, I think they may have lost any chance of winning the public over.
Will be interesting to see how they go interpreting other couples design rules.

#19 *Nasty*Squeekums*

Posted 02 May 2017 - 10:59 PM

They sounded ungrateful and nasty
they made such a fuss over their rules yet it looks they deny a big rule in a house of giving open plan

Loved the boys outdoor room

Try and bec annoy me, unwarranted arrogance and *dons flame suit*  her name makes me shudder, reminds me of a nasty, deceitful so and so i know, so her team had an uphill battle with me from get go

#20 Anyway...

Posted 02 May 2017 - 11:01 PM

I really hope these women get absolutely slaughtered in their design next week, if the things they actually liked in their home say anything it's that they have no idea.

You don't have to love or even like everything but be greatful and tactful about it!

Love LLB too. To The Manor Bowen was his show. I loved it

Loving LLB too, so funny

#23 cookiegurl

Posted 02 May 2017 - 11:11 PM

DH and I started high giving each other whenever the owner said "contemporary country".  Might make it a drinking game next time. What's contemporary country anyway? At one point something was rejected because it was "modern" but not "contemporary". Wut???

Kate and Harry are really not in a good space in their relationship.

#25 Chocolate Addict

Posted 02 May 2017 - 11:19 PM

I have had a long term crush on LLB. :) I did find it funny in the ads them referring to him as LLB, when a lot of people would not have heard of him before.

I love his flamboyance and his design. I love how much he loves his wife,(in The Manor Bowen) etc.. I can't get enough of the man. :)

I am just watching HR now.
