The good news comes after a stunning turn around for the show after weak start and worrying early headlines. In recent weeks it has even toppled The Block on Nine.
But Seven stuck to its guns amid calls for it to be replaced and now have a hit on their hands.
Seven’s Director of Network Production, Brad Lyons, said: “We are delighted audiences have enjoyed the House Rules experience. And they’re in for an even bigger ride in series two.”
Last night Victoria and Western Australian teams were eliminated ahead of tonight’s grand final in which one team will win their mortgage paid off.
Michelle and Steve from NSW will battle South Australians Carly and Leighton in a Live to air finale, with the winner to be decided by audience vote.
The grand final will be broadcast live from both teams’ newly renovated homes. Host Johanna Griggs will be at Melbourne’s Home Base with the previously eliminated teams as the winning team is announced live.
“It’s amazing to think we have a one in two chance of winning our entire mortgage paid off,” said Michelle.
Carly added: “We’re this close to winning and having our life change forever.”
Applications are now open for 2014.
