It's not faked as such just some of the minor details like factoring in labour costs aren't disclosed. Or hire of the bobcats, chainsaws, nailguns etc. They know in advance what is going to be done so they organise to buy the timber, plasterboard, paving, plants etc in advance. Plus they usually get a lot of help from neighbours, relos and friends.
One thing that does get me a little puzzled is why they keep that Pascall Fox chick on Groundforce. All the others are slaving their guts out while she f*cks around for the whole episode making some totaly useless shocking looking arty crafty farty thing out of a piece of junk.
That Changing Rooms show with EA S' and FM's GF is a shocker. I've never seen a makeover that looks any good. Must be a lot of couples that have ex-friends now after ruining the house. I'd like to know what happens if the makeover turns bad and the people can't stand it, dod they have to live with it or will the TV show pay for someone who knows what they're doing to fix it? I wouldn't let my neighbours or friends near my house for a makeover in a pink fit!
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
