The Block – Foyers And Powder Rooms Judged – And The Winners Were….
Reality TV is not real, how can Kim still look absolutely stunning with a killer hangover. Her eyes were not even bleary and there was barely a hair out of place. Was she previously a model?
Kim did end up spending most of the day prior to the room reveal in bed recovering after a night out with the other Block contestants. Apparently one of the twins had tied one on as well but was feeling “surprisingly OK”.
It was judgement day for the contestant’s foyers and powder rooms, with Madi having another meltdown/sook over what colour to paint the bamboo tiles. She ended up taking advice from the electrician who looked like he could not care less. After painting it many shades of white, she ended up going with a last minute grey paint job. To say the judges disliked it was an understatement. Though I did find it bizarre that judge Shaynna Blaze scored them a seven for a room where she said they needed to start all over again.
Also since everyone else had put their laundry in this week’s powder room it even made it more bizarre their laundry was off their living area.
John McGrath who was a subbing for Neale Whittaker this week thought Trixie and Johnno’s foyer was too polarising, people were either going to love it or hate it. I was not a fan of the wall paper, it reminded me of Matt and Kim’s bed head. Also the built in coat rack was bizarre, these apartments are meant to be about minimalism not walking in and seeing coats and hats hanging off a stick.
The same goes for Matt and Kim’s hat stand as well. However their walls had a lot more warmth, and their choices of artwork are always good.
Bec was right to have a whinge about being scored the same as Madi and Jarrod as their hallway was not as hokey. Yes it was a bit cold with the white tiles but I thought the print they picked was great.
Finally the twins had Shirian who had made a wooden doors and had busted his guts for them this week, however his consolation prize is that he is promoting products on TV, something Kev the foreman has not been able to cash in on. Shaynna loved all the storage and the use of mirrors. The girls again had done a great job and had managed to fit a washer and dryer in the laundry.
At first it looked like Matt and Kim might pull off their second win but again the girls won showing that you can be an all girl team and be a force in a renovation show.
Which foyer/powder room did you like the best?
