Bec and Troy aren’t the only House Rules contestants to break up!

Many a relationship has fallen victim to the pressures and demands of renovating on reality television.

By Kietley Isrin
Fans were left shocked during tonight’s episode of House Rules which saw Aussie battlers Bec and Troy split up unexpectedly.
But while the verdict is still out as to whether the pair can repair any damage caused by their bitter bust-up, turns out they’re not the only contestants to have fallen victim to the pressures of renovating. And here’s proof….

Ryan & Candy

They starred in season two of House Rules, but just months after the filming wrapped contestants Candy and Ryan called it quits.
“We bandaged up the relationship and tried to make it work,” Ryan told a publication back in 2015. “But as soon as the show finished, that was it.”
Meanwhile, Candy admits the show only made her stronger. “I think I’ve come out a far stronger person and I’m much more confident. The show definitely does change you.”

Ryan & Marlee

After a three-year romance, season three contestants Ryan and Marlee also went their separate ways not long after their time on the show.
“We needed some along time – not having any on the show drove me insane,” Ryan told OK! Magazine.
Since announcing their split, Marlee has gone on to marry new partner, Jacob Bennett.
“You are one kind guy,” she captioned a snap of the lovebirds on Instagram.
And if Instagram is anything to go by, Ryan has also moved on with Adelaide based model, Jessika O’Hanlon.

Grant & Brooke

Former House Rules contestants Grant and Brooke made headlines shortly after their stint on reality TV when Grant revealed his partner of five years had left him for another woman.
“I’m shocked. It’s not something you’d expect to happen,” Grant told Woman’s Day after learning Brooke was in a relationship with personal trainer Rebekah Juanita Jones.
Not long after, Brooke took to social media to set the record straight.
“I am many things,” she wrote. “A woman, a mother, a daughter, a friend, an educator. But some things shouldn’t be labelled. I am not straight. I am not gay. I am human and I love.”
