Series 2 started on Sunday 25 July and followed a new group of contestants. The format of the show remains unchanged from the previous series. This series originally had 8 contestants but a replacement contestant, Duane Johns, was added during the second week.

Chloe was removed from the house for a violent outburst at the night time. Due to this behaviour she couldn't stay in the house, as she would cause more friction between fellow housemates.

Harri had walked, as she couldn't take it. Being told once by Chloe, that she cannot sleep in the same bed as Marc, she then eventually gave way later on and packed her bags and booked a taxi back home.

Just like the previous series', the series is made up of eight contestants; Jack Woodman, Ryan Lee Cox, Tom Latham, Enzo Salerno, Gracie Dudley, Sophie Simpson, Jade Franklin and Ruby-Jo Leverton.

Sophie said she was planning to walk after the elimination in Episode 1 after she had been told she was eliminated. Enzo was also considering walking in Episode 2, which was the main reason for his elimination despite arguably having shown the largest attempt in the house to grow up. Tom and Jack attempted to leave at the beginning of Episode 3, yet without any money or a place to go they stayed in the house. After losing her money in Episode 4 Gracie was considering walking, yet eventually decided to stay. In Episode 6 Ruby Jo,Tom & Ryan had to renovate a family home wherin the occupants have certain difficulties in life. Ryan Cox eventually won the series and Ruby Jo has decided to re-enter the competition after her experiences during her stay.
