Best friends Fiona and Nicole were the first to hand over their keys to their fellow House Rules teams.
The girls had left strict instructions on the style of renovation they were after and hoped to return to the home of their dreams. Instead, the ladies were bitterly disappointed.
Considering the state of the place prior to the renovation, many of the other teams felt that the ladies were judging their work too harshly, and that they should be happy with any improvement to their home.
“Going by what they had and what they've got they shouldn’t hate anything,” teammate Troy said.

Despite being disappointed with the overall result, Fiona and Nicole loved the entry, mud room and master bedroom. They liked the use of bold colour, though still felt that some elements fell short of their instructions.
The bath was a winner for Fiona and Nicole – who wouldn’t LOVE a tub like that! However, the girls felt that the stripe was too industrial.
On the other hand, judge LLB was very impressed with Sean & Ella’s bathroom stripes. Guess it comes down to preference in the end…
Fiona and Nicole loved the tiles, but weren’t a fan of the metallic look in the ensuite. They loved the duck egg blue chairs in the living room, but didn’t like the stone fireplace.
This time, LLB was in agreement, saying the fireplace mosaic looked like “old dog biscuits” – OUCH!
