The Block – Lysandra and Alisa Are Not Happy They Are Not The Golden Girls
Another week on The Block and another week of filler. One way of padding it out is the weekly Shelly challenge. Yes it gives the teams an opportunity to win $5000 but it must irritate them that it takes a day out from renovating.
Lysandra and Alisa are struggling with the fact they are know longer the favoured children and the cracked last night when Kyal and Kara won the challenge for the third week in a row with their industrial style table in the Mark Tuckey furniture challenge.
They sobbed to camera they were being judged harsher then the others and sulked that when they did something good it was not being recognised. Basically they thought they had the win.
They did have a point about their herb table being far more original then Kyal and Kara’s. However the NSW couples made a very elegant looking table and it has to go in the apartments. Props to Kara for getting being happy to get on the tools. She is a big fan of Mark Tucker so was really enjoying the challenge. Their table did look a little low.
Steve and Chandelle have good ideas but just push it too far. They passed over on the castor wheels the K’s used. They instead went for a ladder and a trolley it just looked uneven and mish mash.
Tonight Shelly coming around to give advice she thought Chantelle and Steve’s feature wall was too ambitious, and there was also the ongoing debate about the firewall. Due to an oversight there was a debate on whose apartments were going to lose some space. Scott Cam reckon he had been on the phone sorting it out with the architect!
The Block’s blokey humour irritates me but it reached new levels of sexism when they “showcased” a female chippie. There was the slow motion footage and the camera panning up and down. As well as Keith being quite surprised that she was doing a good job. Kyal piped up and said a few of the guys have got their eye on her.
The Block Fans V Favourites on Sunday night at 6.30pm.
