Well, that’s it, folks! We’ve reached the end of Australia’s Next Top Office’s first official challenge. It’s been an exciting time and I hope you’ve kept up with everyone’s blogs, scattered across the internet. Today we’ll be revealing the winner of GSB’s Nightmare, in which we asked each of the five remaining contestants to build a glass stair balustrade for their office. Some people might consider revealing the result online to be a form of spoiling, especially since the actual season doesn’t come out until later this year, but we’re going to do it anyway!
Let’s have a look at how the contestants went. The first challenger was the Dirge, who entered this competition as a hot favourite to win and take the grand prize of ‘feeling really good about how much money you contributed to charity’. Given his background in glass repair services, Melbourne staircase design and flair for all things tinting, it’s no surprise that his glass balustrade was looking fantastic. That was until his metal dirges proved too much and destroyed it! Unfortunately, the Dirge finishes this challenge in last place with zero points.
Then we had Archerak, who entrusted this project to a conjured zombie. Although the undead creature was supposed to be given remarkable intelligence, it tripped over on a glazing handbook and lost its crown of intelligence. Archerak had to teleport back to Sweden, Victoria and make a crude, quick balustrade with his magic. He finishes in fourth place with fifteen points.
In third, we have the Glass Smashing Bandit, who managed to put together a fine balustrade but could not resist the temptation to hit it with a hammer. Fortunately, the glass did not shatter and only gained a large crack. He finishes with fifty points.
Miss Frankie did well, finishing in second place with seventy points. There’s not much else to say about it. It was a fine balustrade and we congratulate her on a great job done.
Our winner is Jack Zebraman, who produced a balustrade so excellent you’d almost think he’d paid a professional to do it for him. He finishes with one hundred points. And who said you don’t learn anything from television and movies? Jack Zebraman certainly did!
