Melbourne couple Pete & Courtney have won House Rules 2019 with a near perfect score of 29 / 30.
The Grand Final challenge was to create a luxury loft in just seven days, with the pair defeating Melbourne chippies Tim & Mat on 27 / 30. South Australia’s Lisa & Andy came third with 26/30.
The married dancers walk away with $250,000 and a fully transformed home and garden.
Pete said “It is completely numbing; it has been a rough ride and an amazing ride. We just can’t wait to go home to a beautiful, beautiful house that these five amazing teams did for us. We are so grateful.”
Judge Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen said, “You two have without doubt created some of the most memorable spaces this season, what you did for the final was to focus on your personalities, you really understood this idea of luxury.
“When you are real, when you are you, you do something that makes me so ridiculously proud of your abilities. “
Runners up Tim & Mat said, “We obviously adore Pete and Courts and we adore all the other teams; win lose or draw I was always going to walk away cherishing the friendships that I’ve made.”
Jamie Durie said of the brothers, “Without a doubt that bedroom is the finest room I have ever seen in House Rules. The kitchen was amazing, the courtyard had a couple of hiccups, but I’ve got to say I was just so taken with everything you did. It would be remiss of me when I put all the rooms together and think about all the effort to give you anything less than a 10.”
Wendy Moore said of Lisa & Andy, “I just cannot believe what you managed to achieve, six rooms in one week. I cannot imagine when you first entered the competition that you dreamt you were even capable of that. You did just a spectacular job. This is by far the best work you’ve done, and I love that you’ve left it to the Grand Final.”
