House Rules Grand Final: Pete & Courtney crowned 2019 champions

The Melbourne couple scored an amazing 29/30

Dance teachers Pete and Courtney walked away with $250,000 and a fully transformed home and garden after scoring a near-perfect 29/30 on the House Rules Grand Final.

The Grand Final challenge was to create a luxury loft in just seven days, following five ‘House Rules’ set by the judges, with their score deciding the winner.

The couple beat chippie brothers Tim and Mat who also scored well, with 27/30 from the judges. Lisa and Andy came in just behind at 26/30.

At Homebase, Courtney told host Johanna Griggs through tears “I don’t have any words.”
