Last week, we gave you the first look inside the contestants’ personal notebooks. Ready for another look? This week, see early sketches of rival kitchens. Plus: Contestants react to the challenge and the daunting double elimination.

The team decides to focus on just two areas of the home: The outdated kitchen and the run-down bathroom. Adi and Rick took on the bathroom project, while Peggy and Stayce tackled the kitchen. Here’s one of their early sketches of the space:
