LAST NIGHT ON HOUSE RULES: The 2019 season of HOUSE RULES kicked off to a fierce start with teams sprucing up an urban dump and revealing their rooms in record time.

Professional surfing sisters and reno rookies MIKAELA & ELIZA delivered the biggest shock, proving the dark horses claiming victory in the first challenge. “WA has come out punching,” announced judge JAMIE DURIE. Victoria’s Pete had a cheekier take on the girls’ win. “They got a lot of help from everybody, so I think that’s everybody’s win to be honest.” Winning an advantage - the details of which are yet to be revealed - the sisters head into the first whole house reno (Pete & Courtney’s) at the top of the leader board, while Lisa & Andy, in last place, will be the first team to pitch the House Rules tent!  

Tonight’s Scores

 MIKAELA & ELIZA (WA) - Bedroom 3

Jamie

8

It was an amazing job, the way you sculpted that wall with fibre cement sheeting. Hats off to both of you.

LLB

7

There were some phenomenally clever but simple choices, like the beam on the ceiling. Where have you been hiding your talent all these years?

Wendy

7

I walked into this room and thought ‘wow’.”

 

SHAYN & CARLY (QLD) - Study

Jamie

7

I love what they’ve done with the study, I think that’s beautiful interior architecture.

LLB

8

Everywhere I look, I keep being surprised, they’ve understood the brief. I think they’ve really triumphed

Wendy

6

A great start, needs more soul.

 

TIM & MAT (VIC) - Bedroom 1

Jamie

8

Your construction ability wowed me … beautiful engineering. Not so sure about the plant choices.

LLB

6

You are, at building, like over-excited puppies, ‘look what we can build.’

Wendy

6

Your colour scheme felt a bit dowdy in a room that doesn’t have a lot of natural light. It was a little bit depressing

 

KATIE & ALEX (NSW) - Bedroom 2

Jamie

7

I think it’s really well executed. They did a great job.

LLB

8

I really, really like this room. 80s is something you’ve got to throw yourself at totally, like a fly at a windshield

Wendy

5

I feel a little bit annoyed about the (neon) jewel in the room, it’s too literal. I’m not feeling it.

 

PETE & COURTNEY (VIC) - Lounge Room

Jamie

6

The wall unit let you guys down.

LLB

6

Unlike Wendy, I loved what you did to the indigo wall. I think you’re good at putting personality into a space.

Wendy

6

Your entertainment unit was awful. Like the one Uni students get before they can afford furniture.

 

 

LISA & ANDY (SA) - Dining Room

Jamie

5

A great first go, I was quietly impressed.

LLB

5

I like your ability to put surprising things together. I think it lacked heart.

Wendy

5

Great bones, not a lot of flesh
