My big beef is that I think these shows have gotten a bit out of control over the past few years. Tonights winner was sold for $1.35 million dollars, giving the young couple almost $200,000 in profit which is good for them. I am glad that for all the hard work, all couples made some money and come out ahead. I just wish that the houses were more affordable, more realistic financially.
I am not a huge fan of the NZ version, but I love watching the Australians as they have more access to a huge range of furniture and design choices, whereas the poor Kiwi cousins get to shop mostly at Freedom Furniture giving a bit more of a boring generic look.
With lots of home shows, I would love to see something a bit more down to earth and simplistic.
