They told her she was a semi-finalist, so maybe she thought the more pitiful and pathetic she sounded the better her odds would be of winning, but it was just awful. We experienced dreamers would have been 99.99% sure that "You are a semifinalist," was just a ruse to get us to the show and we were the winners. I don't recall anything in their rules about semifinalists.
It was a really healthy build, though. I hope they do it again.
Oh, I am SO GLAD that is not the HGTV system. I do believe The Doctors winner was randomly chosen, so maybe that is unreasonable of me. If she is a chronically miserable person, then she just is. Yes, her husband did die of a terrible disease. But beyond that I kept thinking, Hey, lady with kids to support, get a job already. You can't visit your dying husband because you can't buy gas? So that means you do have a car? Oh, puhleeze. If you want to visit your dying husband, you come up with gas money. The kids could earn gas money.
That's all. I'm done rolling my eyes. Just so glad HGTV doesn't do that.
