The other houses King (yellow), Darcheville (green) and Mitchel (blue) refused to surrender to Jean (red) house. King house unleashed their kinetic energy and growl of the tiger, while Darcheville house hurtled their horse power with a revenge and not forgetting Mitchel house who flew like an eagle to exhibit theirsupremeswiftness, all with the conceived notion to bash out the defending champion (Jean house).
