Woman’s Day reports six couples own at least two properties, with WA’s Carole and Russell owning real estate valued at $2.3 million.
Yet the show portrays the contestants as battlers, who will have their mortgage paid off if they win the show.
The rules of the show require that their renovated house must be a contestant’s “primary home.”
The magazine claims Carole and Russell have amassed a $2.3 million property portfolio, with a waterfront property currently on the market for $1.17 million. They are also joint owners of a luxury apartment with a $650,000 price tag.
Bomber and Mel reportedly own a house each in Adelaide, both worth around $400,000, totalling three homes between them. Lisa and Adam also own another four-bedroom house worth $520,000.
Queenslanders Maddi and Lloyd have denied claims they owned two properties.
Tasmanians Brooke and Grant were noted as genuine “Aussie battlers” struggling to pay off their $262,000 family home.
There are also numerous claims about contestants not being genuine home residents of the houses they are renovating.
Seven declined to comment to TV Tonight.
