Who will go home? Mr Hi 5, Nathan, the beautiful but bitchy Davin or Brendan? Tonight will be the challenge of home made costumes. Wow – wonder if it’s a coincidence that they waited for costume designer Jamie to go home before doing this challenge.
The boys along with Jason, are having yet another guided bus tour, as they do in each town. Through Port Augusta the boys are shown one of South Australia’s largest bottle’os – Jason has no idea what a bottle’o is? What? You must be kidding or have been in the UK too long – he calls it an off-license! Bloody Pom. They arrive at the Town Hall to get a crash course in a boxing session. Poor Tom hit’s like a girl – not some feral skank, he hit’s like a lady! But can Tom skip, OMG he did “Jump Rope for Heart” and is brilliant – he’s like the energiser bunny!
Brendan, Davin and Nathan join Hugh Sheridan for breakfast and discuss their reactions to being in the bottom 3. Brendan says that being in the bottom three is a great way to learn. Davin explains that even though he might be feeling something on stage, that doesn’t mean the audience is. Waapa teacher Brendan is on a learning curve while Davin feels that he has very strong strengths (he does) but his weakness is acting that he hasn’t done since he was a child in the Sydney Theatre Company and Nathan wants to break out fro Hi 5 and be known as Nathan Foley.
Back at Town Hall, Donovan is boxing to little success and they all head back to the bus where they then head to a jetty to enjoy some aquatic therapy before they are landlocked for a while. Oh Jason – put that shirt back on, or do some sit ups – PLEASE! What are those shorts he is wearing? Let’s focus on the other boys – yummy, even if the nipples are out and other bits in due to the cold!
Now off to costume with the brilliant Tim Chappell. He boards Priscilla and tells them the costumes have not arrived – but is this a joke?
Tim tell the guys that they will have to create their own costumes and poor Davin is shocked, especially as is in bottom 3. Tom has never even turned on a sewing machine, the poor love.The theme is marine – think mermaids, sailors, pirates and water creatures. They will be in groups of 3 for their performance and head to local discount stores and op shops for thie purchases. -
Nathan has opted for purple jeans – I thought you wanted to be Nathan not Hi – 5? Davin has a body to die for in a great white corsette. Armed with their goodies and treasures, they compare on the bus while creating their “masterpieces” and poor Rohan is going for tacky – but beautiful. Is there such a thing? Maybe Brynne Edelsten (whom I love) or a Hilton (who I DON”T)
They meet a sewing circle that will help them out and Ben with the make up designer to see what wigs they will have and therefore be able to create their characters and costumes. Nathan has a pirate inspired one and Tom is a mermaid (and very happy) while Brendan get’s a fabulous whale tail – wig that is, his g-string’s not showing!
Nathan get’s Betty who has been sewing for 40 years to make his jeans into cut off’s and Rohan has 84 year old Ethel – they are wonderful women. Davin is asked if he’s going to pad his bra by one – love theses women. They are the older generation, from a country town and look at the acceptance – I want one! God bless ‘em and the “boys” decide to invite the “girls” to their performance. Tom, Matt and Brendan are embracing the challenge but are they nailing it?
They go to vocal training singing “Venus” by Bananarama – and sound great. They then have choreography with Kelley Abbey and have to strut their stuff, with only four hours to practice. Brendan is BIG TIME- yes! Sorry I just think Nathan and Davin BELONG there. At 5.30 am they are up and Davin is confident that the other two are struggling more than him and he knows he will look good – he just needs to channel his character and do a great performance. Nathan feels he has more to offer and yes I must disagree with Davin, Nathan can really move – just not as well as him.
Off to Port Germain for the performance now and apparently they have what was once the longest jetty in Australia. This episode has probably been my least fave – bit slow and not enough laughs. Or is it because Nathan and Davin are in bottom 3?
The boys will perform in an old train shed yet a dust storm is upon them and literally wigs are flying everywhere! Brendan looks like Liza Minnelli – not sure if that is good or bad. Davin needs more chicken fillet and his wig is horrid yet his outfit looks great, Nathan looks like Johnny Depp met P!NK – in bad way, but I love him. Hell those legs on Davin are unfair to womankind. Brendan is really struggling and Davin hopes that he will nail it – NOT! Nathan dances well but very blokeish and Davin needs more depth according to Kelley Abbey.
Ooh the makeup starts – my fave bit! Nathan says if he is sent home he will tie himself to the back of the bus – so he should, not really I think is Brendan’s time as do the other contestants. They have now got to BLOW the judges out of the water – not literally! Ooh Matt actually looks good in drag. So talented – these make up artists could make me look like Anjelina when I really look like a cat’s arse. The sewing circle come and check out t heir work and are so sweet. Tom looks so hot and am loving Rohan’s make up.
Now time for the performances and Toni wishes she waas one of them. Nathan is nervous, Davin GORGEOUS and Brendan is calm. The performance is great!
Nathan – Voice a bit manly for drag, strong vocals though. Again ugly as sin. Nice looking guy but horrid female.
Davin – Ooh I think is AMAZING – sounds most like a drag queen and the outfit is sensational – I wana be that hot! If he doesn’t make it to through – I would pay to see him perform on Oxford St.
Brendan – LOVE his voice – that outfit is dreadful.
Davin has said he never sings off so is confident – but all are confident. The only one with a hint of doubt is Brendan. Jason says all were amazing.
Now in the bus Priscilla – here are the judges reactions =
Brendan – Judges think he struggled yet had great moments.
Davin – Jason thinks is a tough one and doesn’t think he has the conviction, Toni is in limbo yet Stephan see’ the talent and hope.(Jason is jealous)
Nathan – Jason thinks is solid yet pshed the bar too far – but tonight was a pro. I think Nathan is great! Never should have been in bottom 3. But the judges worry he is trying to shake off Hi 5 too much.
Toni is glad she doesn’t have to make the decision but it’s made. Who will the bus stop for?
Brandan – He wants to be an artist – did he do it? He thinks he did.
Davin – Second time in bottom 3 and relish the spotlight. Yet he thinks has done enough to be safe -I say definitely.
Nathan – Showed a different dimension but went to far (I still loved)
Jason says that he has been asked this week about what they are looking for and he says a triple threat. A leading man with charisma and can’t take your eyes off – Ok just described Davin and ….
Who will go home and miss out on the $ 250,000? The eliminated person is … Davin!
This is ridiculous – so gorgeous, entertaining and Priscilla basically lost it’ motor!
What the hell? WTF! Are they crazy and lost their bloody minds? or a crack addiction? Davin is the last villain left – all of these shows need a villain. Where would Idol be without Cowell, Australia’s got Talent without Kyle or Top Model without Dawson? This a travesty of justice. So now with Davin and Jamie left we just have the “good guys”. We need Davin to have his own reality show now! Ooh, I wish I could be his partner on The Amazing Race – Two bitches, different sexes with a common goal – win at all costs. A manager of this site I don’t have time to recap – now I see why. The disappointment can destroy you.
