The Block Finale – And The Winner Is….
Well after over an hour of recap montages we finally got to the reserve prices but we were still not at the auctions. However first congratulations must go to Scott Cam who has turned into the Eddie Maguire of reality TV for drawing things out.
There were mainly winners tonight but unfortunately for Duncan and Mark it was a tad disappointing. However to the auctions.
The first house to go to auction was Josh and Jenna’s. Their reserve was $1.375 million, both theirs and Amity and Phil’s reserve were set higher than the others but not by much. It was a slow start for Josh and Jenna but it then kicked off and sold for $1.65 m for a profit of $275,000.
Auction number two was Duncan and Mark but where was Dale? The poor sod had to stand out in the holding room with Shelly and the other teams, whilst the boys were on the couch with Scott Cam. This seemed a bit unfair. I wonder if he was going to get a split of any profit made. Their reserve was $1.345 million. It stalled on $1.35 million clearly the fish tank was not going lure the buyers in. It ended up selling for $1.37 million they made a small profit of $25,000. They were clearly disappointed. Scott Cam again could not think of much to say except it is just a sign of the real estate market in Sydney. Thankfully Duncan stepped in to fill the silence. It was probably their design that did them in as it was so unique and people spending that amount of cash would have a lot of their own stuff. Also their back yard was totally impractical they turned it into a walkway.
Dan and Dani were next their reserve was $1.355 milion and it sold for $1.575 million making a good profit of $220,000. They also made over $400,000 last year so they must be very happy indeed.
Last to go for sale was Amity and Phil’s house their reserve was $1.375 million and they sold it for $1.67 million obtaining a profit of $295,000, which made them the winners of The Block: All Stars. Add in the extra $100,000 for winning and they made a well deserved $395,000 all up.
Poor Duncan and Mark everyone reaped the rewards of The Block:All Stars except them.
