As House Rules heads into its first elimination, Perth couple Carole and Russell Bramston are not feeling 100 per cent confident they are safe from the chopping block.

With Adelaide duo Michael "Bomber" Bamford and Melanie Chatfield's run-down home the last interior to be renovated on the ratings-winning Seven show, the final leaderboard results will be revealed on Monday night and the bottom team will be sent packing from the competition.

Although they have impressed in previous weeks and currently hold a place near the top of the ladder, Carole told AAA Weekend the challenging SA renovation could easily change the game for any of the teams.

"I don't think you can ever be confident because you can go from the top of the ladder to the bottom really quickly," the Boya grandmother said.

While their Hills property has already been treated to a shiny makeover, the Bramstons certainly aren't ready to go home yet, with the winner's prize of having their mortgage paid off in full being the couple's ultimate goal.

"We are not just in it for half of it - we want the whole lot," Carole explained.

Russell added: "We are in it to win it because, more than anything, I want Carole not to work. People keep telling me 'Happy wife, happy life'. But seriously, this late in life, if we don't get the mortgage paid off this way, we might never get it paid out."

When it comes to which of their rival teams most deserves to go, the pair both agreed that team Tasmania, parents-of-seven Brooke Strong and Grant Lovekin, fell short of the other contestants because of their poor styling.

But if Russell was calling the shots, he would go one step further and eliminate the weakest individual players. "If it was up to me, I would have Bomber and Brooke go," he said, adding Bomber had a tendency to be lazy.
