House Rules contestants Andrew and Jono may not have the most renovation experience on the show, but their strong bond has got them this far.
It appears the two brothers have faced everything from good times to battling through their parents’ divorce together.
"We were eight when our parents split," Jono tells New idea. ‘We were always close [as a family].’
Thankfully, for the WA boys who are now 28, their parents’ separation was reasonably smooth, due to this tight family bond.
"[Mum and Dad] were really good about it," Andrew says.
"It did mean moving to a different school, and originally after complaining about the uniform – of all things – it turned out to be a good move and school. It did help having a twin brother moving schools, because you already had a friend."
Jono agrees, adding: "I don’t think the separation affected us much at all, I think it helped that we’re very close so we always had each other."
The identical twins still maintain the family ties, and all spend holidays and celebrations together.
"We’re very close to both of our parents," Jono explains. "I have dinner with Dad every Monday and Mum every Thursday, and get the odd phone call in-between as well."
House Rules airs Monday and Tuesday, 7.30pm, and then the Grand Final on Sunday, 7pm, Channel Seven.
