The Block – The Most Sensible Team Won
Scott Cam obviously had been give no script for when Brenton and Chez’s apartment came in under reserve. As the poor couple looked shocked, Scott Cam just sat their like a stunned mullet. Very poor hosting skills.
Neisha and John won, with their apartment selling for $1,105,000 which meant they won $305,000 in prize money. $205,000 of it was from that was how much higher it sold above reserve, and then another $100,000 bonus for being the winners.
Duncan and Mark made $47,000 as their reserve was set at $860,000 and were gracious in defeat, even though they looked disappointed.
Morello the winner of The Apprentice auctioned off Chez and Brenton’s apartment. I hope his new career at Yellow Brick Road is going more successfully then his attempt at selling real estate as it did not reach reserve. It got $865,000, which was $15,000 below reserve.
I felt for Brenton and understood why he was so upset. He worked his guts out on that apartment and to come out with not a penny. I don’t think I have ever seen Chez speechless.
Erin and Jake’s flat came in for $997,500, $87,500 over reserve, a I think a bit of bargain considering the harbour view.
It was good to see Neisha and John win with their “blank canvas” style apartment. But I hope this doesn’t mean next series we are going to see each apartment being a different shade of white.
Also next series more renovating please.
Did anyone else think it was strange that we didn’t see the two judges John McGrath and Neale Whittaker at the auction?
