RECAP | A chaotic race to the finish on HOUSE RULES

It was a chaotic race to the finish with teams feeling the pinch in every stride as they climbed up and down Pete & Courtney’s ‘heartbreak hill’ driveway.

Some rooms were off the scale amazing, while some were off the mark, but risk-takers Katie & Alex rocketed to pole position on the leader board with 25 out of 30 points. “They are a great team to watch in this competition,” said a clearly impressed LLB. “This is their first renovation and they have done things to surprise and delight.” Sadly, while Katie & Alex felt the warm glow of praise, it was a different story for Shayn & Carly who sat at the bottom of the leader board with 16. “We’ll do better next time,” said Carly through tears after the styling of their master bedroom was compared to a bad 80’s nightclub!
