Better Homes and Gardens host Johanna Griggs took to social media today to share the news that the popular Channel 7 show has two brand new hosts; 2014 House Rules contest Adam Dovile and Home and Away actress Demi Harman. The cast shakeup will see 13-year veteran Rob Palmer exit the show, while decorating goddess Tara Dennis will stay on.
“Adam comes on board as our full time DIY guy.. after winning House Rules in 2014 with his gorgeous girlfriend Lisa,” Johanna Griggs said on Instagram. “He is a chippie in his everyday life anyway, so this will just add another string to his bow. Demi will focus on craft which is no stretch given she has had her Demrock Designs business bubbling along for years as well as her acting”.
While Demi’s focus will be on crafting and DIY projects, Tara Dennis will put her skill set to good use on more interior design segments.
“This is truly a dream come true. I can’t wait to work with Joh again and the rest of the team. The show has such a loyal following and I’m very proud to be a part of it,” Adam said of his joining the team.
The reason for Rob Palmer’s departure remains a mystery, but Johanna Griggs had nothing but good things to say on social media about his next chapter.
“It has been an honour to work alongside him and I hope he goes onto bigger and better things with his trademark unrivaled enthusiasm,” she said. “Big changes… But seriously exciting times ahead for all”.
