I have been watching most (but not all) of the latest series of Wanted Down Under and it seems to me that this series has got a different angle than previously. There are no rose tinted glasses and none of the families I have seen have voted unanimously to emigrate - most are voting to stay in the UK.
In the main I think this is because there is no longer a big killing to made in the property market, houses there seem expensive and lots of people have voted the UK better for housing !! That would never have happened last year. However I think the producers have deliberately been sending people to view some pretty grotty or inappropriate houses. The family in Adelaide this week who chose the Coast option were shown a very tired and uninspiring house in Glenelg, and a house in Aldgate (coast ??). One family in Melbourne, with a toddler and where the man was going blind, were sent to a couple of 2 storey homes, one with an open-plan staircase with no hand rail ! Not suitable at all They also seemed to have picked a high proportion of people with health issues - is this just to make for more controversial TV ?? It's still compulsive viewing but will probably put some people off making the move.
