Live Blog: The Block Finale – And The Winner Is…
Wow what a shock, Chantelle and Steve won The Block. Even Scott Cam exclaimed “The world’s gone mad!”. Their apartment with city views was the last of the four to go up for sale. This strategic decision paid off for them. Their reserve was $1,834,000 after the $16,000 they won in the house challenge was taken off and it sold for $2,470,000 a whopping profit of $636,000. Add in the $100,000 for winning and they get $736,000 in prize money.This should pay for the therapy for the crappy edit he received making him look like a doofus.
Also can someone find out what Keith thinks about this? Also it was amusing that all other teams tried to look pleased that they won. But you could see them thinking this must be the unworthiest winners ever and how the hell did they beat us. In this interview in the Daily Mail the other teams say they are happy for Chantelle and Steve, however Kyal and Kara thought their own reserve price was too high. How much money did they want to win?
In another article in the Daily Mail Steve and Chantelle say they now have time to be lovers.
However all of the teams were winners with all making huge profits. Ironically it was the teams that were the two biggest whingers this season who won the highest profit. Lysandra and Alisa coming selling for $2,375,000 getting a profit of $616,000. Then the Super K’s who were the second to sell sold for $2,440,000 making a profit of $567,250. And it was Brad and Dale who sold first which they wanted who came in fourth. They sold for $2,310,000 with a profit at $507,250.
There must have been some sore heads in Melbourne this morning.
Were you happy with the result?

The Block Finale is on tonight though it looks like a 7.40pm start as the Hey Dad cast on talking about Robert Hughes case.
Who will win? Is Dale going to emerge the winner of the series by getting an ongoing career on the small screen?
Kyal and Kara are going to open a design company and the twins already have.
OK just get ready for filler, ads and more filler before we eventually get to the auctions.
Whose apartment do you like the best?
7.42pm – Scott Cam claiming he was the one who found the Dux House building to renovate. “As soon as I saw it I knew I was onto a winner”.
7.43pm – Scott also said he “divided up the apartments and asked for a pool area on the bottom floors and then I left it all up to them”. The show’s architect probably just choked on his red wine.
7.53pm: In manufactured drama security guards in kevlar vests and wearing gun holsters pick up silver cannisters from a vault allegedly carrying the reserve price and delivered them to the The Block. In manufactured comedy Scott Cam stood on the other side of the small pool and got the guards to throw them to him. One fell into the pool and then he pushed the other three cannisters. Yep hilarious.
7.58pm: Is this some sneaky way of getting the girls back in bikini’s to retrieve them?
8.03pm – Reserve prices Alisa and Lysandra’s is $1,775,000, Chantelle and Steve’s is $1,850,000, Dale and Brad $1,830,000, and the Super K’s $1.9 million.
8.08pm: The city views are what is driving the higher reserve prices. The twins don’t have city views.
