HOMEOWNERS: Troy & Bec
Hailing from Sydney's western suburbs, Aussie battlers Troy and girlfriend Bec are flying the flag for the underdogs.
The budget-conscious pair can stretch a dollar and they'll be banking on their penny pinching ways to see them through the competition.
"I've always had a knack for spotting a bargain and bartering too," Troy, 46, says.
HOUSE: Troy & Bec's Rundown 1960s Weatherboard
Painter Troy bought his rundown 1960s weatherboard home in 2000.
The divorced father-of-one is hoping the other teams can transform his bachelor pad into a family home so Bec, 39, and her two children can join him.
Currently it's in no state for visitors let alone new occupants.
The oven and cooktop don't work while the toilet doesn't even flush. "We use a camp barbecue which isn't ideal and not to mention dangerous," Troy says.
Had it not been for House Rules, their dream renovation would have been nothing but a "pipe dream."
Account manager Bec says, "We would have been buying lottery tickets every day!"
