Brother v.s. Brother episode #3 "Double Jeopardy"

Episode3 does not disappoint.

In my opinion, best episode yet. Our morning started much like all others: 6am call time. This was our view in the morning from our Hollywood loft apartment:

This week we were really thrown for a loop when Drew and Jonathan decided to turn the intensity up by eliminating one member of each team at the midpoint of this challenge.

It was a soggy start to this one but that wasn't going to stop us. If it there’s one thing Team Drew does well is work together--or at least I thought so until this challenge.  When we were told one member would leave at the midpoint, we really saw everyone trying to own their space and start to fight to leave their "signature". 

I decided to finally show my design skills. For the past two challenges I was more of the "handy" guy on the team. Now it was time to let Drew know I could design as well. 

Brett and Monica decided to take on the kitchen & Christy the laundry room. So I chose the living room, since I felt it could add a great deal of value and be the biggest impact as you walk into the house.  Here are some sketches of the fireplace.

So unfortunately after 2 days, Christy was the latest casualty. Team Drew will really miss her. Take a look at Christy's exit interview: 

At this point the competition gets very tricky. How do you make your mark on a space while helping the team win the challenge?  My strategy: I have to take on tasks that I can finish early to give me enough time to help out my teammates if needed. At this point Brett has asked me for help with the kitchen floor as well as the backsplash.  Also, keep in mind we're now down 1 person and we all have to pick up the slack in the laundry room.  I don't know if I can help everyone and get my room finished and staged!
