Luke and Jasmin have it out with their plasterer over a invoice they are saying they will’t afford to pay.


“I’m not going to let enormous plastering payments compromise my yard and home once more. I’m not going to have it,” Jasmin says, earlier than heading to seek out Sam.

“I labored my arse off for what?” she says to him, breaking into tears. “To not even be within the operating? I’m taking successful on this for nothing.”

“I left my children for this,” Jasmin provides. “We simply don’t have the cash to pay you”.

There’s one thing a bit distasteful about contestants who’re attempting to win monumental pots of money standing over a tradesperson to berate him about his invoice, even when it did appear considerably inflated.

The low cost Sam affords isn’t going to make a lot of a dent in the price of their grand plans for his or her yard, pool space and courtyard. It’s going to be a stretch, even with the $40,000 the producers have given every couple for the job and the game-changer cash they’ve saved for this week.

That is such an costly week even cashed up pair Jimmy and Tam are anxious concerning the funds, regardless of the whopping $54,700 they need to spend given their earlier wins.

“We’ve all the time managed our funds rather well and that is the primary week we’ve been anxious about it,” Tam says.

“We’ve acquired an additional 15 grand on high of the funds and I do know there’s individuals who have had cash taken off their $40,000 from final week so I don’t know the way they’re going to execute the yards they need,” Jimmy provides.

Working example is Harry and Tash, who’ve a single lengthy aspect yard, versus a yard and courtyard like different groups, plus pool space.

They’re $9000 within the purple after overspending final week, and fear there’s much more invoices to come back in, so that they’re attempting to do their out of doors areas with simply $25,000.

“We’re having to strip all the things out of our yard so it’s simply the naked bones,” Tash says. “It’s very European of us having mainly simply concrete.”

Tash realises she can't afford any plants.

Tash and her landscaper determine to embrace the enjoyment of concrete.


They’re ditching plans for timber batten fencing, a metal planter and a brick seat constructed round an current mature tree.

Sarah and George are in a greater place. They’ve final week’s winnings, plus the remaining $2300 of their game-changer cash (left over from that customized metal door that they had constructed for his or her hallway) and so they’re utilizing it to have fun their Greek heritage, besides in contrast to their neighbours, they’re doing it with a mature olive tree, not cement.

The landscaper Dave Franklin can also be placing some Useless Sea minerals of their swimming pool, which he claims may have an anti-ageing impact. No matter you say, Dave.

Daniel and Jade are additionally doing okay, having managed to avoid wasting $3000 from final week to present them a funds of $43,000 for his or her poolside daybed, garden, barbecue, heaters and sculpture.

They’re additionally forward sufficient to take Scott Cam up on a suggestion of a morning at Sandown Raceway. They’re joined by Luke and Jimmy for a driving problem and sizzling lap, whereas an envious George decides to remain again on the web site as a result of he can’t bear to ask his trades to work laborious whereas he’s swanning about in a race automobile.
