Taking to Instagram, Johanna wrote a long and heartfelt tribute to her time on the show, as well as explaining why she has decided to walk away from the popular program. 

“Thank you for your incredible, passionate, support throughout season 7 and congratulations to our Champions Pete and Courtney,” Johanna began. 

“I’ve got some news for you all. After a great deal of consideration, I recently sat down with the Network to ask to be allowed to step down as Host of House Rules. They have graciously agreed for me to do that which I’m incredibly appreciative of.”

“As the show goes into preproduction for the next season, it’s the perfect time to hand over the role to someone who will take the show into S8.” 

Johanna has nothing but love for her House Rules family thanking her stylists, the House Rules writers and the judges, Jos Snell, Drew Heath, Jamie Durie and Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen. 

As to why she is leaving, Johanna revealed it is to focus on her other pursuits. 

“My role as host of Better Home and Gardens, which everyone knows I’m crazy about, keeps me very busy. Hopefully now though, with a different workload, I’ll be in a better position to take up one or two of the great opportunities that come to my way, especially with 7 Sport, which is such a passion for me.”
