Pro surfer sisters Mikaela & Eliza were eliminated from the competition after receiving the lowest score overall for the interior round and apartment challenge. Mikaela said: “Just being able to give back is honestly the most rewarding thing ever. I know it’s a competition, but I wouldn’t change a thing.”

Eliza added: “It is so sad to say goodbye, but I feel like we came here to give Mum a fresh start and we achieved that.” It was a spectacular homeowners’ reveal that proved teams had saved their best until last. Katie & Alex returned to their eco-friendly 21st century country home with an “amazing” guest room and lounge that left Alex “speechless.”

Teams more than doubled the size of the house and added $330,000 value in seven days.

Katie said: “This is a million times more than we ever asked for.”

Back at homebase Alex told the teams “you’ve changed our lives… I feel like Katie and Hallie have the home they deserve.”

Tim & Mat received a 10/10 from the homeowners and topped the leaderboard with their bonus 5 points added from the early room reveal win.  Their total of 41 was the first time in-House Rules history a team scored over 40 points for a whole house transformation.

Tim & Mat were also crowned winners of the overall interior round with a total of 188 points and will receive a special set of rewards at the next renovation.
