Hans and Courtney placed last in the 48-hour room challenge, and their bad luck continued. 

On day one of master bathroom week, the couple’s builder pulls out. 

The aviation couple then loses a day trying to find a replacement, and in the end decide to fly a builder to Melbourne from Sydney.

Disaster strikes again when the couple’s tiler quits with no warning. 

Courtney told 9Homes, ‘It was Valentine’s Day and we went and had dinner up the road and we were so sad. We spent the whole time on our phones.’
