With the warming up of the competition, the House Rules episode on Wednesday saw Shayn and Carly inspect the early reception rooms in their Sunshine Coast home.
And with an additional $ 5,000 bonus and five bonus points, the Queensland couple chose to vote strategically instead of with their hearts.
Knowing that Pete, 32 and Courtney, 31, were among the teams involved in the challenge of early disclosure, Shayn and Carly were concerned that they would benefit if they took advantage.

& # 39; By giving them five extra points, they might be above us and maybe turn us off … I think strategically now, not how much I love the rooms, & # 39; said Shayn, 33.
In the meantime, Carly (31) admitted that she was struggling to find out who did those spaces, so she knew who didn't have to give them the bonus points.
Host Johanna Griggs later gathered the other teams to inform them about the controversial decision of Shayn and Carly.

& # 39; They were really open and very honest, it came down to strategy, & # 39; the 45-year-old TV presenter explained.
This bombing revealed that the other teams felt shocked, especially after Johanna explained that they had voted so that Pete and Courtney would hopefully not win.

& # 39; They play a dangerous game & # 39 ;, said Tim, 32, while Mat, 27, added: & # 39; I don't like this. I don't like this at all. & # 39;
Unfortunately for Shayn and Carly, the room they had chosen to win the early disclosure challenge was indeed designed by Pete and Courtney, but it was a bittersweet win for the Melbourne couple.
& # 39; It's a bit of an egg on their face, I think, & # 39; Pete commented, while Mikaela (24) added: & # 39; Oh, that's so uncomfortable! & # 39;
& # 39; They play a dangerous game & # 39 ;, commented Tim (left) while Mat (right) added: & # 39; I don't like this. I don't like this at all & # 39;
She said: & # 39; It is a kind of satisfaction when people try to do strategic things and it has the opposite effect. It's pretty funny. & # 39;
But Tim and Mat – who got lost in the early room – were not so amused, with Tim admitting that he & # 39; deflated himself a bit & # 39; felt after & # 39; standard losses & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Trust me, I am not happy with the way we won & # 39 ;, Courtney admitted, and with the addition of Pete he also felt & # 39; disappointed & # 39;

& # 39; I feel so completely deflated by the fact that it doesn't matter how good your work is, if they don't want you to win, they will give you a bad score because they think they can figure out who and what for room therefore, & # 39; Courtney explained.
Pete had some destructive closing words for Shayn and Carly: & # 39; They'll find themselves in the last renovation with no one who wants to support them, give them room, help them. They will be very, very alone. & # 39;
& # 39; Why would you want to go upstairs next week knowing that we will all be against you? & # 39; asked Tim, admitting he was tempted to ride an ax through one of the walls of Shayn and Carly.
