The Block All Stars- Room Reveal Of The Formal Lounge
No wonder Mark one of the tradies collapses tomorrow night on The Block: All Stars as the show has been rigorous and in the past week none of the teams have managed to get much sleep.
Phil confessed to camera that he had had six hours sleep in three days, and the tradies, in fact all the teams pulled an all nighters.
It was reported today in the SMH that an ambulance was called after he experienced a tightness of the chest. He won’t be returning to the show and will be replaced by Dale Vine, that is, of the Sophie and Dale team from last year. Good news for Duncan as he will have another tradie working with him, but also Dale does have some design aesthetic, something the boys struggle with.
It will be interesting to see how they split the profits of the sale of the house.
It was judgement day on The Block and after the usual fighting and snarking between Dan and Dani it was time for the room reveal.
This week it was the hallway, formal lounge and a linen closet.
The judges loved Phil and Amity’s hallways, as well as turning the second lounge into a kids bedroom. They also liked the use of the sliding doors as it also gives the option of it being another living room. Neale Whitaker thought it was very clever. The only criticism the judges made was they thought they should have made attic access.
Duncan and Mark’s hallway art were too big and overwhelming. Shaynna said she did not like the fake brick wallpaper. They had not finished their storage room.
Unfortunately for the boys they had won a giant amour and had to put it in the room it was far to big for it and overwhelmed it, and it also did not go with the other bedroom furniture. It was a bit unfair for them as they had to use the piece.
Neale said it was claustrophobic.
Josh and Jenna’s hallway was underwhelming and bland, as Shaynna joked there was nothing to talk about, and it was the same thing as their lounge room Barely any furniture or decorating and blank walls. Their theory is to leave it a blank canvas to mak it more appealing for the buyers who want to put their own touches on the house. However then they put in a weird, but original feature of a freezer in the floor in the storage closet. OK it could be a good use of space but it implies they are not going to put a very big fridge in the kitchen. They would have done better putting in an under ground wine fridge for that area of sydney.
Dan and Dani’s hallway Shannon liked the floorboards in the hallway and the lights but again they wondered where the art was. Dan and Dani had built up and they had a lot of storage and even a man cave.
They also liked their dining room, which they described as modern, edgy and a little bohemian. However it was not enough to get the the win and the $10,000 this ended up going to Amity and Phil.
Did you think the right team won?
The Block on NINE weeknights at 7pm, and on Sunday at 6.30pm.
