HOMES UN­DER THE HAM­MER

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Don't Miss This Week -

AN­OTHER sea­son of has come and al­most gone, with the re­sults of yes­ter­day’s top se­cret auc­tion to go to air tonight in a 90-minute fi­nale. The show has been a rat­ings bo­nanza for Nine and given new life to an old Mel­bourne land­mark, the Gatwick Ho­tel. It’s hard to judge who will be the win­ner but the fi­nal chal­lenge saw Court­ney and Hans earn $40,000 off their re­serve – an ob­vi­ous ad­van­tage when these lux­ury apart­ments go un­der the ham­mer. But for mine, the real win­ners of this sea­son have to be fan favourites, Jess and Norm (left), who trans­formed one of the build­ing’s two pent­houses. Not since Chrissie Swan on have I warmed to a re­al­ity con­tes­tant as much as I did Jess, who surely has a big fu­ture on ra­dio or TV be­yond this se­ries. Mean­while, Nine re­vealed it will re­turn to St Kilda for next year’s se­ries: trans­form­ing The Oslo Ho­tel, a back­packer hos­tel in a her­itage build­ing, which con­tains five 1850s ter­race houses, hid­den be­hind its more con­tem­po­rary façade.
