Let’s be real: this week wasn’t really a week.
The last five episodes have purely served Channel Nine to show us how DELICIOUS McDonald’s is. And how REGULARLY the contestants eat it. And how much it FUELS the hard working muscly men. And how it has TEA and SALADS for the people who own fallopian tubes (women… I mean women).
Anyway, #seamlessproductplacement aside, we’re here because I promised to do this Block recap every week, and forgot that “spare bedroom week” is a thing. For the record, “spare bedroom week” should not be a thing. Namely because people give zero shits about spare bedrooms. Contestants and producers and Scott Cam included.
Especially considering most riveting thing to happen was Ronnie deciding what breakfast wrap he wanted. I wish I was kidding.
If contestants are getting bored/going to the movies/deciding to do other rooms at the same time, IT SHOULDN'T BE A WEEK. I mean, we have some couples doing ensuites and walk-in robes this week, and others just... not.
It's a bloody mess.
In better news, Turtleneck Judge clearly got my memo and is back in his necessary uniform. Thank gawd.
Okay, to ~ze room reveals~
Sticks and Wombat: 26.5/30
You guys, I don't know if you got the memo, but MEN are decorating this house. ACTUAL MEN! With their dangly bits and hairy limbs and testosterone and everything. The judges find it important they remind us of this every time they step into a room by Sticks and Wombat. Because MEN.
As science has shown us since the dawn of time, only women have the DNA that allows for the selection of artwork, throw cushions and blankets, making Sticks and Wombat positively mind-boggling.
How did they... make the bed? Aren't their hands too... big for that? How do they know... which colours look nice together? Didn't their... doodles get in the way?
It's all very confusing, and probably explains why they came last, if I'm honest.
