What will hot-headed NSW contestant Troy do if he’s eliminated? That’s the question on everyone’s lips today – and one that’s being teased heavily in the latest promo for tonight’s episode.
With Troy and partner Bec coming out of a particularly trying week, where they fought with competitors Fiona and Nicole, and clashed with the judging panel, things are looking particularly fraught.
‘We’re definitely the better designers in this competition,’ Troy is heard to argue in preview footage from tonight’s episode. 'Absolutely!’ adds Bec, in a dig clearly aimed at fellow poor-scorers Fiona and Nicole.
‘We deserve it more,’ Troy adds of getting a shot at the finale, ‘no two ways about it.’
After Drew Heath last night awarded Team NSW one less point than their Victorian rivals Nicole and Fiona, it was clear Troy wasn’t going to take the dismal score in his stride.
‘Are you kidding? A three?’ he said angrily, after it became clear the criticism of their zone would be sending them to the bottom of the leaderboard.
‘I haven’t said good things about you all the way through anyway, but that three. C’mon that’s disgusting.’
But when flamboyant judge Laurence Llewelyn-Bowan came to Heath’s defense, it only angered the painter further, prompting Troy to accuse him of being too under-qualified to provide an opinion.
But the judges weren’t the only people to clash with Troy and Bec this week. And it's a fight that may prove their undoing.
Fiona and Nicole had it out with the couple after they installed a lattice ensuite wall against their wishes.
‘We certainly fought tooth and nail not to have that wall put up,’ Fiona complained to the judges.
‘Troy and Bec weren’t willing to listen or negotiate with us. It was a pretty raw week, it was a pretty tough week for us.
‘Troy and Bec achieved what they set out to do and that was sabotage our area.’
Now it remains to be seen if that act will be the undoing of either team.
