Gold Coast couple Aaron and Daniella were last night crowned winners of Seven renovation series House Rules.
They defeated Adelaide’s Kate and Harry to take out a $200,000 prize after scoring 27 points, with 25 points for the South Australian runners-up.
Joined by family members, eliminated contestants and judges, the grand final comprised an outdoor renovation on the properties belonging to their opposing teams.
Aaron and Daniella renovated a narrow space down the side of team SA’s house while Kate and Harry renovated a pool and BBQ area.
Judge Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen told the Gold Coast couple, “There is absolutely no doubt that you two saved the best until last.”
“We just didn’t think this could happen. When we started, we just came along for an adventure, now look where we are… it’s breathtaking,” said Aaron.
“We just want to provide a beautiful life for our boys and give them opportunities that we didn’t have… (House Rules) has not only brought us closer together, but $200,000 helps us get ahead in life and means I can spend more time at home with my family… it’s beautiful.”
Harry said, “For us to get our house renovated, to have a beautiful home, is the best thing that could ever happen… we are so thankful for everything.”
Seven’s series has drawn solid numbers in its 5th season, including wins against The Voice and Masterchef Australia. It is currently calling for applications for 2018.
