House Rules is back on this Monday and there’s a Gold Coast high-rise involved – wait, is this The Block?
Will social isolation compel me to watch this season, even with Jamie Durie as host?
Probably not, given MasterChef returns a week later, on Easter Monday. Oh well, maybe next year …
I know there has been some discussion about this already, but for those of you who missed it there was a landmark decision this week (no, not ScoCam deciding who to pick on again).
You can read about it here at The Age (thanks to Polly B for sending it in).
Basically a House Rules contestant has sued Seven for workplace bullying. Seven countered that she was not an employee but the NSW Workers Compo Commission found otherwise.
This could open a real can of worms for some of the networks.
Will we see a return to “gentler” reality TV or will the Instafluencer types who go on MKR use it as a chance to up their payday?
While I love the guilty pleasure of some reality shows, things have certainly taken a darker turn in the past few years, with more focus on manufactured drama.
MKR certainly encourages contestants to belittle each other. MAFS is just pure insanity. The Bachelorette allows total douches on the show and while Angie kicked sleazy Jess off, the fact he was allowed there at all after making production staff uncomfortable is not cool. The Block and House Rules rely on sleep deprivation to bring out the worst in people and Keith and ScoCam love to poke the bear for drama.
This is why GBBO is my fave reality show because the most controversial thing that happens there is someone opening a freezer door too often.
The final garden reveal is the most spectacular yet, and when the scores are tallied the grand final teams will be revealed.
Umm, it’s still going, right?

Joh introduces the teams to a family torn apart by a devastating house fire. The remaining teams work harder than ever to give back and build a new home to bring this family back together.
Time to see what the judges think of Katie and Alex’s house.
It’s judging time, then on Tuesday, Katie and Alex hand over the keys to their rustic cottage in the NSW Southern Tablelands. Built in the 1800s, their piece of paradise is tight on storage and crumbling down around them.
