The third season of The Great Australian Trade-Off is better than it’s ever been…period. Full-stop. Not a semicolon or anything, because that’s most definitely the end of the story.
The internet agrees with me. While the show was pretty good in season 2, they’ve swapped out the hosts, injected this badly needed humour element and now all of the contestants are super good looking. Ugh, who needs average people? Average people? On television??
As is tradition, the show reached its week dedicated to auto repairs and car mechanics. Garages Bentleigh already has must have been really cool about letting this TV show come and film in their space, especially since the individual garages weren’t named. They removed all the branding and had a message at the end of the episode, thanking all the Bentleigh car mechanic garages for allowing them into their workspace. I guess with the show as popular as it was, there’s going to be a massive boom of people getting their car services done in the Bentleigh area. They’re going to be getting scores of phone calls every hour: “Hi, um, I need my wheels adjusted and…uh, was yours the garage where Chip lost his temper and threw a wheel across the workshop, smacking right into a camera and giving his team an instant disqualification??”
So yeah, loads of that. Or they’ll just get random calls where people will be like “Hey, this may sound weird, but was yours the mechanic’s workshop where Cascada revealed her true talent for engine diagnosis despite it being her first time, and Brent became so jealous that he set fire to her overalls with a magnifying glass?”
I guess that may somewhat offset all the extra business they’ll be getting, but not by much. So long as your cordon off the important areas and direct tourists to certain places, I’m sure they’ll be able to get their work done just fine. Still, just think of all the extra car servicing. Bentleigh better prepare itself for a tourist storm! It was such a great episode, I wouldn’t mind taking a quick look myself…
