About Mitre 10 Dream Home
In the premiere episode of Mitre 10 Dream Home, six Cantabrian families will vie for positions in either Team Orange or Team Black. The six families will compete under pressure to create a scale model of their ultimate home.
For the first time ever, New Zealand was able to lodge votes in 2012 for who they thought most deserved a shot at building their dream home. These votes along with a judges decision will result in the two finalist teams.
The successful families will be revealed at the end of episode one and in the second episode these families will begin their builds.
In the final episode, both teams will be able to bid on their homes, but only one team will walk away with their home gifted to them for free. A public vote as well as the judges votes each week will decide the winner.
Judging will take place at the completion of each room. The families must also undergo time pressured challenges throughout the series which will enable each team to win prize money from ASB which can be used for bidding in the final or a mortgage for the losing team.
