Bargain Hunt Australia

About the Show

About the Show

Over five nights, two teams of two contestants – the Red team and the Blue team – are each handed a budget and let loose at an antiques fair. They have just one-hour to trawl the stalls for items that they hope to sell later for a higher price. Each team is assigned an antiques expert to advise and tell them about the items which catch their eye. But expert help is not always enough to curb the amateurs’ enthusiasm for an unwise purchase. The team which makes the most profit (or invariably, the least loss) wins. The Bargain Hunt Australia team includes effervescent host Tim Wonnacott and two of his trusty antiques experts, David Barby and Paul Laidlaw. With lots of laughs and valuable lessons along the way, will the Aussie teams find out that it’s not as easy as it looks?

I'm a Venezuela born Australian when I started watching the show, six years ago, my English wasn't good enough to be well aware of what was happening, but I enjoyed nevertheless and still do it and haven't missed an episode since then.
I wish one day I have the opportunity to participate in UK or Australia. Sad there'll be so few shows here.
Can't wait to see Tim and the gang in my beloved Australian's locations.
Regards,
Nancy Ortega
