A lot like finding the highest score (suggestions here)-- initialize a String variable with an empty string which gets overwritten with the name in the if statement whenever a higher score is encountered.

Using an if statement that tests the highest score from the house preferred by the user and basically, matches the score with what the name was. Hope you got it figured out.
