After only two episodes, Channel Nine's newest reno show Buying Blind, has angered viewers.
The reality show sees prospective homebuyers handing over their life savings to the panel of experts - interior designer Shaynna Blaze, buyer's agent Rich Harvey, and architect Marshal Keen - to buy them their dream home.
In last night’s episode, young parents Lis and Ali had a budget of under $600,000 to find a three-bedroom home close to their childrens’ school in Melbourne’s Dandenong Ranges.
It was a hard ask given Melbourne’s median house price is $900,000, but Buyer’s Agent Rich Harvey found the pair a home for just $565,000, coming in $20,000 under budget.
However, the home needed extensive renovations.
A voiceover announced: 'Two internal walls will be removed to create a bigger living area, and sliding doors will be added, opening onto a brand-new curved deck.'
Also on the list of improvements were, 'a new gallery-style kitchen with a spacious pantry and a revamped bathroom with new bath tub and separate shower.'
Viewers were left unimpressed with the final product - with only $20,000 remaining from the couple's budget, there was no way they could have afforded this home in the way it was presented.
Nine was slammed for it's 'completely unrealistic' budget and viewers took to Twitter to vent their frustration.
Channel Nine responded to the backlash with a statement to news.com.au.
It read: 'Along with each couple’s renovation budget and their own personal belongings, Buying Blind’s experts used their considerable industry contacts to deliver extra value to the buyers in order to make each house a home to be enjoyed for many years to come.'
