Australia’s biggest renovation show returns in 2017. Now in its fifth year, HOUSE RULES continues to break new territory with even bigger challenges and designs. This year’s ride of a lifetime will see six new teams gambling with the most important possession in their lives: their home. To win the ultimate prize, they will have to completely renovate six houses in only six weeks.
Together, the teams will travel the country, hand over the keys to their homes and leave their opposition to transform every room in their house. Guided by just five HOUSE RULES, the teams will each be given a designated zone in the house. They must draw on all their creative talents, determination and strategy to produce breathtaking reveals that impress not only the home owners but the judges too.
Host Johanna Griggs returns with judge Wendy Moore, who will critique this year’s homes alongside two new judges, including international design style star Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and acclaimed Australian architect and builder Drew Heath. With only one week to completely transform each home, the teams will need all the help they can get. Back to guide them, and help them decipher the HOUSE RULES, is interior designer Carolyn Burns-McCrave.
All six teams will walk away with a completely renovated interior of their home. The final two teams left standing have their home completely renovated from top to bottom, inside and out, and will face-off in an epic Grand Final for a $200,000 cash prize.
The six teams vying for the 2017 crown are:
QUEENSLAND / Aaron & Daniella
SOUTH AUSTRALIA / Kate & Harry
TASMANIA / Sean & Ella
WESTERN AUSTRALIA / Andrew & Jono
VICTORIA / Fiona & Nicole
NEW SOUTH WALES / Troy & Bec
HOUSE RULES was a ratings smash in 2016, averaging more than 1.57 million combined viewers across Australia. More than two million people tuned in to see Queensland twins Luke and Cody win and realise their dream of living mortgage free.
