The series begins with eight determined couples competing in a tense 24-hour, do-or-die Elimination Challenge to see who makes it through to the major thrill ride: the full property renovation. With little more than what they’re wearing, the final four will be taken out of their comfort zones and dropped into a frantic ten-week contest to renovate equally dilapidated terrace houses in inner-city South Melbourne. With no running water and dirt floors in the rundown terraces, this series is definitely not for the faint-hearted. Couples must first contend with the twin pressures of little money and very little time, and then compete against each other in a series of challenges – while delivering a renovated room every week.
