'Rock the Block' Season 3: Egypt Sherrod and Mike Jackson steal the show in 'Living Room Challenge'
The premiere episode of the third installment of 'Rock the Block' saw some neat challenges, a keen eye for detail, and a serious renovation battle. The living room challenge required the contestants (along with the partners) to completely revamp the drawing room of the houses where the show is taking place.
Star couple Egypt Sherrod and Mike Jackson combine their efforts yet again to win this round of the competition. Their simple yet efficient ideas on smart yet aesthetically pleasing setup is definitely the go-to when it comes to refurbishing homes to add on greater value.
On the season premiere episode, one of the many things Sherrod took the lead in was to not paint the heavy wooden beams in the hall. The beams are the way to handle tall ceilings and Sherrod decided to leave them as it is.
Had she decided on any tones of brown, it'd dull down the living room by several notches. The room still looked grand and almost palatial towards the end. In addition, the living room along with the staging looked pretty rich against the kitchen.
The pair also worked on building a connection from the garage to the mudroom. Innovative yet simple tricks like these were well received and highly commended by the other contestants and the hosts, thereby adding great value created on the house.
One of the many reasons the star couple won was because Egypt and Mike always ace the decor department. It's aesthetic and appeals to any and everyone without doing too much or going over the top.
All in all, the simple idea of the hallway's connection to the garage is probably what won them this round.
Will the pair ace the several rounds of competitions awaiting them? Looks like we'll have to wait and find out.
