House Rules eliminates first team
Seven's House Rules surprised viewers last night by eliminating its first couple -and The Block brings out the hate.
They were sent packing after the sixth and final house reveal for Michelle and Steve from New South Wales.
After scores were revealed host Johanna Griggs shocked contestants by telling them accrued scores across the season had been merged onto an overall leader board and that the lowest team would be cut.
“This experience has been really hard at times,” said Jane. “But it’s been a really amazing experience to have with everyone here. We’ve loved it.”
Teams return to their own homes tonight for a fix-up challenge before more teams are set to be eliminated.
After tonight’s elimination, four teams will battle it out in the semi-finals ahead of Monday night’s grand final decider.
Meanwhile on The Block WA team Matt and Kim made a deal with Trixie and Johnno to score each other ten points but reneged on the deal, awarding 9.5 points and winning the week’s challenge. On social media the pair attracted their share of vitriol.
“In preparation for the torrent of abuse coming my way tonight. My suggestion is to ask trix and Johnno on twitter if I cheated. #TheBlock” they said on Twitter.
