Channel Seven is currently casting for an exciting new TV renovating show called House Rules. They’ve asked us if we’ll help find someone from Tasmania to feature. Of course, we jumped at the opportunity, because we love to see Tassie represented on reality shows… it’s another great avenue to bring attention to the state.

House Rules: Channel Seven to Tasmania

For House Rules, Channel Seven is looking for Tasmanian people who own a home that’s in dire need of renovation. The contestants will have to roll their sleeves up and actually do the renovating themselves. So if you want to renovate your fixer-upper into a dream home… this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

Contestants selected for House Rules will have the the entire costs of their renovation covered by Channel Seven. You don’t have to be a make-over expert; but if you have a fun and vibrant personality, a little skill and a keen sense of how you’d like to transform your house… you could be exactly what they’re looking for.

What Are the Channel Seven House Rules?

To be eligible for House Rules, you must…

  • own and live in a house that needs completely renovating
  • be at least 18 years of age
  • be energetic and passionate about renovating
  • form a team with a close relative or friend who’s willing to also get their hands dirty
  • have some form of experience in building, renovating, DIY, design or home improvements
  • be available for a filming period of up to 14 weeks from January 2013

So does this sound like you? Maybe you know the perfect person to represent Tasmania in the renovating reality show? Share this around with all your friends, and let’s get Tassie on the TV. You can apply for House Rules online, or contact Sally Brown from Channel Seven Casting (photos and information supplied).

And one last thing we must mention… Sally tells us there is a “life-changing” prize up for grabs. There’s a bit more incentive, if you needed any. So dust off your hammers and your floor-sanders; take some photos (or shoot a video, even) and lodge an application that Channel Seven simply can’t ignore!

Applications close September 14… and be sure to tell Channel Seven that Think Tasmania sent you. We want to interview the lucky candidates and talk up your chances of winning that prize.
