I find this an entertaining show with an entertaining concept. I also enjoy Robert Irvine alot. (Although I wish he'd vary his clothing a bit from the black polo!) I much prefer him to a similar format show w Gordon Ramsay. Irvine is more interesting with a better personality.
I have a couple of peeves, though. Why, in heaven's name, do they have to finish in TWO DAYS??? What would happen if they took 3? Or even 4? The 2 day requirement makes the show a bit ridiculous at times, you wonder how people can eat with wet painted walls and the smell of sawdust and paint in the room!
The other issue is with the $10G. I believe that they are only including material-- with labor costs, this could be triple the price!
Overlooking those ideas, though, I still find it entertaining. Wish they'd give up on the silly 2 days, though...
