The Block – Mike and Andrew Won This Weeks Room
I know by nearly 1.5 million people last night but I am finding it really difficult to get into The Block this year.
Maybe I am finding it difficult to emotionally connect with the couples or the cast. Obviously I watch it but does it have my full attention? No.
Apart from Mike and Andrew, I feel I have seen the other three couples before in previous seasons. Attractive, nice but not particularly charismatic or even that bright. Each week we have the same plot line of the room being renovated, the problems dealing with the three million tradies that actually help get the room ready, the shopping and the sleep deprivation.
However clearly I am on a silo on this one, as the ratings do speak for themselves.
However one addition I am liking is Shaynna Blaze being a judge as she is adding an interesting perspective to the show, with views that may not align with John McGrath and Neale Whittaker’s. In fact I even liked the new dynamic guest judge gave Darren Peters last night. More guest judges should be brought in.
Dan and Dani did not finish their room as there was a problem with the sink in their ensuite, so they had no hope of winning. Also Sophie and Dale may need to switch it up a bit as their retro style does not appear to be getting the love from the judges. I also find it amazing that anyone can spend $200 on a cushion for a bed. Go to IKEA….
The boys one with their bedroom and ensuite even though it did not have a towel rack. Lucky for them they won $10,000 towards their renovation budget.
