EntertainmentHouse Rules: Carolyn defends Shayn and Carly
Brimson defends under-fire Titans coach
Gold Coast youngster AJ Brimson says the Titans' NRL woes have little to do with coach Garth Brennan and it's time for the players to take responsibility.
Shayn and Carly cranked up the drama on Wednesday's House Rules when they awarded the early room reveal prize to Pete and Courtney over chippie brothers Tim and Mat thinking they were picking the zone that Pete and Courtney didn't do.
And while the other teams were left gobsmacked, one cast member has defended their decision to score strategically...and it may not be who you'd expect.

There's not a lot of room to work with,' admitted Carly, 31.
Taking to Twitter during Wednesday night's episode, design expert and House Rules mentor Carolyn Burns-McCrave supported homeowners Shayn and Carly's controversial choice.
"I'm gonna put it out there. I would ABSOLUTELY be strategic.. I would grab any advantage I possibly could," she tweeted.
Her followers, however, were quick to argue their point.
"Yes but if you do vote strategically,why say so...It never ends well," one replied.
"I understand the strategy card i do, i just wouldn't of. I would of just kept it to myself," said another.
But Carolyn came right back saying, "I don't believe they were bragging. They are just an honest, straight shooting couple."

"Why are teams so upset about strategy??? It's $250k for goodness sake. This is a design competition, not summer camp!" she added.
The resident design expert clearly has. Carolyn shared a sweet black and white snap of herself with Shayn and Carly ahead of Tim and Mat's house reveal to her personal Instagram account.
"I can't say enough good stuff about these two #houserules legends. @shayncarlyau were really up against it with the early room reveal at @timmatau house but did their best right till the very end. It's just their MO," she captioned it.
The other teams weren't too happy with the strategic scoring though, especially .
"I'm not happy about the way we won," Courtney admitted.
"I was so disappointed by it," Pete added. "And then they'll find themselves at last renovation with no one wanting to support them, give them space, help them out. They'll be very, very alone."
