About the series
House Rules is an Australian home improvement reality television series that follows couples that renovate the homes of others in order to win the grand prize of their mortgage being paid off. Hosted by Johanna Griggs, the series first aired on Seven Network in May of 2013. House Rules Season 4 premiered on April 27, 2016.
In this series six couples travel around Australia to renovate the house of their opponents. Each week, the teams are given a set of rules from the owners of the home being renovated. In order to gain a high score, these ‘house rules’ have to be followed completely. At times, the renovating team can be given the ‘his and her’ rules, which can be conflicting, presenting additional challenges to the team. At the end, judges and homeowners grade the work and give out their verdict. This season six brand new teams from across Australia will compete for the opportunity of having their mortgage being paid off. They will transform and renovate each others` small homes and hope for the life-changing chance to come their way.
Current season, ratings and renewal chances
Although the average viewership for the series declined between the first and third season, it remains quite high, hovering at approximately 0.7 million viewers. Scoring 6.9/10 on IMDb, this show is very interesting, much like most home improvement shows are, adding an extra bonus of seeing people’s mortgages being paid off in full, which is a great joy, even if a vicarious one. Stay tuned and find out what the future holds for House Rules.
UPDATED June 27, 2016: A week before series 4 grand finale Seven has already confirmed the renewal of its popular home renovation program House Rules for a fifth series and has tentatively scheduled its release for 2017.
