Talking TV (Test)
What are you watching?
Weekly chat for The Block.
“High end people don’t watch TV , they read”
Yeah , like Kerry Packer, Elvis, Alice Cooper, Frank Zappa. I could go on.
Jess is not exactly high end, whatever that is.
The SA team have the meeting with the judges. Looks like the judges want the “heritage” stripped out of the apartment and expect contemporary luxe. Scotty tries to cause conflict with the other teams by needling them about this meeting.
QLD chick is just a mean girl.
NSW chick is still sulking and face-times wall paper consultant. Jess thinks this is cheating and runs to tell the netballers.
Monday is walk around so we really get to see the bathrooms. The QLD bathroom is really bad. You practically need to lean over the toilet to get to the vanity. EPIC fail. They should have come last.
2 seasons ago, teams were copping for stripping an art deco building of all its heitage. These season teams actually want to sue the heritage and they are being told to rip it out!
So everyone is watching Survivor tonight? I don’t blame you.
Tonight’s ep seems to consist of people sitting around waiting for things to dry.
My only take-out is that I am starting to really like the Queensland couple. Nice people, but I am still not remembering names.
Jess & Norm?
We think they are ‘fake-nice’.
I call her Miss Maple.
Kinsman seems to be another name for the Good Guys (if anyone is interested in the wardrobes). https://kinsman.com.au/laundries/
Scotty looks different. His eyes/brows have changed I reckon.
Yes, Polly, I agree. Perhaps it’s steroid puffiness? Or a little bit too many gastronomic delights?😉
Reminds me of Bert Newton.
Yeh, I don’t think it’s gastronomic delights. His face is different.
Mhmm, Hans im Glück speaks German, flight attendant girlfriend asks “Is that French?”. Guess she does not really do flights outside of Australia? 🙂
The bathrooms were all a bit bland. Plastic bath tub lady’s bathroom as my least favourite.
I hope the other teams keep heritage features, you can still make it look modern.
That’s it, that’s it, Zhee! Bland!
I was wondering what was wrong with me that I couldn’t see “the hero” in each room.
They are all just various shades of white … with a green bush.
Is it me or is my perception about Kerrie and Spence correct – insipid!
Oh, please, Kerrie crying because she hates to see Spence upset, then consoles him like a Mum who tends to her little boy who has fallen off his bike.
It seems that it’s all about pleasing Spence and Kerrie simply panders to him, almost to the point that she is treading on eggshells around him.
Spence is softer than a Barossa Valley cheddar.
What? No on-screen appearance of Dougie the engineer?
Yes, give Apartment One $100k in additional kitchen vouchers but have a (faux?) structural issue with the floors.
Jess does another undie run in front of the cameras. She is a few sandwiches short of a picnic.
Looks to me like she’s put away a few sandwiches in her time.
I know, what is that smh
Spoke too soon. Dougie is here to despair about pools.
Nice camera work on the cigarette butts lying around. Great.
The Qlders win the styling challenge.
NSW spent just under $62k on the bathroom.
Alice’s Walkabout winner this week is the Netballers.
Sarah the accountant makes her first appearance.
OMG…the QLDers have not paid their tradies.
Financial illiteracy is not cute.
And they’ve lost their credit card and didn’t know.
Trying to convince $chlock viewers that “Queenslanders aren’t backwards” worked a treat for these two.
