The Rock FM Host Duncan Heyde Joins House Rules NZ as a Judge
Warner Bros. Discovery ANZ Unveils the Full Cast and Judges for House Rules NZ
In an exciting announcement today, Warner Bros. Discovery ANZ has revealed the complete lineup for the debut season of House Rules in New Zealand. The home-renovation reality show, originally from Australia’s the Seven Network, is set to captivate audiences across multiple days in September on Three and ThreeNow.
The Concept of House Rules NZ
House Rules NZ follows the format of its Australian counterpart, where five teams compete in a home-renovation showdown. Each team will take turns renovating each other’s homes and “competing for the ultimate prize.” The winner of the overall series will take home an incredible $100,000 cash reward. Every week, one team will entrust their home to the other four teams for renovation. The home owners will score the work without knowing which team was responsible for each transformation.
Meet the Judges and Host
The show’s judges include Duncan Heyde, popular host from The Rock FM, who is thrilled to be part of the House Rules NZ experience. Heyde expressed his excitement, stating, “I’m so pumped for Kiwis to see the absolute rollercoaster that is House Rules NZ. This first season will have so many amazing and rough moments that are bound to have viewers glued to their screens. The contestants are such great humans, the renos are even better, and the prize is unreal – one hundred thousand dollars?”
Joining Heyde is the talented designer Jade Hurst, who will supervise the competing teams throughout their renovation journey. Interior designers Katrina Hobbs and Michael Murray will also join as judges to score the teams’ work.
