The Block – The Lounge and Dining Room Reveal But We Have To Wait For The Winner
The Block producers would be able to give a masterclass in product placement and in filling up hours of air time with nothing. Last week the Wednesday and Thursday night episodes were prime examples of this. Wednesday night the contestant’s talked about the rooms they had already renovated and Thursday night they were at the races doing silly activities like fashions on the field and a plastic bubble race. The latter all appeared to be about getting Swisse a sponsor of the show on screen.
However I normally expect Sunday night’s to go to a set formula – finishing up rooms, room reveal and then scores. Not last night after the room reveal and after the first two judges scores were put up the contestants were told they would have to score the other teams room.
Matt and Kim who had the highest scores and who thought they were finally going to get a much needed room win were told by Scott Cam they would all be judging and scoring each others rooms.
They know it the scores will be based on personalities and Bec and George, and Jarrod and Maddie will score Trixie and Johnno’s higher. That $10,000 was slipping out of their grasp.
However we have to wait until tonight to find out what happens as the room reveal episode is now going over two nights.
For high end apartments the weird thing was how small some of the lounge rooms were. Lysandra and Alysa had a two seater lounge and a chair so where does everyone sit when they are entertaining? Considering they put in about three ovens it seems strange. Bec and George were the same. The lounge is shoved in a crevice and is just there to watch the big projector TV.
The others did have more lounge space, but this meant Trixie and Johnno only had a four seater table. Maybe there will be more living space in the outdoor area. As last week was only the half way point of the competition the teams must be now renovating outdoor space and communal areas.
Which room do you think should win this week?
