After weeks of renovating action (and just a touch of drama) the winners of House Rules for 2018 have been crowned.
In the finale episode it came down to Dairy Farmers Toad and Mandy and ultra competitive couple Mel and Dave , with Toad and Mandy coming out on top and snagging the $355,000 prize money.
The teams made over each other’s front yard in just four days, guided by five all-important House Rules.
After finishing the four-day build, Toad said to Mandy: “I don’t think we could have done another thing babe.”
Mel was in tears after the renovation replied, “No matter what happens, we are so proud to have achieved that in just four days for Toad & Mandy’s forever home.”
As Johanna welcomed the Grand Final teams into the studio, Toad said: “Being away from our kids, our family and our jobs for such a long time, I don’t think there’s any point half doing something so we just wanted to push on,” he admitted while trying not to cry.
Mel and Dave were emotional as Mel said: “Dave’s worked away for 10 years, we’ve been together for 15, we have two little men now and we want to give them the time they deserve with Dave.”
Of his competitors, Dave said: “We couldn’t be standing next to two better people tonight.”
Even before the finale kicked off, fans were expecting things to get a little bit heated.
