Yay! I’m so glad that worked out well for Luke and Eb, otherwise, Caro was going to have alot to answer for!

Meanhile news.com.au spoiled the result about half anf hour ago :(

15 Maz { 11.25.15 at 9:27 pm }
16 Shellbot { 11.25.15 at 9:33 pm }

Just realised that 15k they took off their reserve got them the win! Off a flipping shoe-box ensuite!

17 Maz { 11.25.15 at 9:47 pm }

Five years!!!!!

Yet, another couple embolden to set up a ‘design consultancy’ http://www.theherald.com.au/story/3518900/shay-and-dean-win-the-block-2015/?cs=305

Think Max and Kartsan did the same.

18 Juz { 11.25.15 at 10:08 pm }

Phew – timed it to tune in just as they started the auction process. Old moustache guy has appeared as a previous buyers’ agent, right? They really spun out that E and L drama, but glad everyone got at least something, unlike the massive letdowns of previous years.

Well done to Luke and Ebony. Talk about the producers dragging it out to make us think they weren’t going to get anything.

Spewzie looked like she was off her head. Damage control at HQ was a bit of waste of time. Play the “depresson” card. 😑 If that was true, I agree with Maz @473, where were the helpline numbers? and no sign of her children.

May be a big stink now that the cat’s out of the bag about her and Tim Wise and their 5 year relationship. Weren’t there reports earlier that they only met this year. I’m sure I read something about that. πŸ‘Ώ

20 Jocelyn { 11.25.15 at 10:57 pm }

I am not sure about the ‘five year’ bit – other stories said the relationship was short-lived but serious?

21 WHY { 11.25.15 at 10:59 pm }
22 WHY { 11.25.15 at 11:13 pm }

Does anyone know why Keith and Dan weren’t present at the Auction, along with one/some of the builders?

23 techhater { 11.25.15 at 11:26 pm }

This is the link that said they met after filming began.

WHY @522 Here’s Spewzie’s;
https://au.linkedin.com/in/suzi-taylor-1bb673b2

But I had to laugh at these statements:

“Suzi Taylor has been a well-respected Gold Coast Identity for over the last 25 years”

“Contact Suzi on (I wont put her number here) today so she can take the best care of you and one of your most valuable assets.”

” Live Performances, Filming Video Clips.” 😳

25 Jocelyn { 11.26.15 at 12:18 am }

Well. I can’t see there’s an LJ Hooker at Main Beach anymore. And I can’t see her name on the neighbouring LJ Hooker offices’ websites, but I’m happy if someone is more patient than me at searching. I lived in Main Beach until 2903 and I’ve never heard of her. But fake boobs are a dime a dozen in Tedder Avenue. And younger ones that hers.
Still, I give her credit for owning up to problems.

26 Zhee { 11.26.15 at 4:01 am }

Great for Ebony and Luke that they made so much profit. :) And also great for Shay and Dean. I think out of all couples, Luke and Dean appeared to be the hardest working people.

The outfits. Oh. Dear. The Channel 9 stylist should be fired who chose the outfits for Whitney and especially Vonni. Horrendous. Vonni looked overall like nearly 50 and she’s in her late 30s.
Ebony looked nice and I loved Shay’s dress.

So long, let’s see what the next season brings. Hopefully the producers realize now that viewers don’t want couples like Tinder or Cougar. It’s like “So, what can we do with the Block? Ya know, that renovation show!”, producer A looks around in the room. All the other producers look away, dig for gold in their noses, are asleep. “Okay, then I decide. Let’s recycle our worst contestants characterwise and get some even worse people!”

27 Gabby { 11.26.15 at 9:11 am }

Well thank goodness that’s over. I always thought the penthouse would win. I was surprised that Luke and Ebony’s reserve was so high but then again fits in with the way they have been treated.
I would have loved L and E to have won, I am sure this morning they are happy with what they have after the way their bidding started.
I was surprised to see no tears from Mr. Tinder last night when talking about his break-up. I agree it wasn’t the time or place to bring it up.

You have to wonder what the idea behind the bidding was on that last apartment. What would have happened if the auctioneer had called it in? Why were they all waiting so long?

Thank you for a great series Maz.

28 Smythe { 11.26.15 at 9:16 am }

Congrats to all for earning a profit but especially to Luke & Ebony and Dean & Shay. Did they purposely have bidders hold off on the L & E apt to create faux drama? It just seemed off that there was very little bidding with all of this drama being built up and then suddenly the bidding gets fierce.
Hoping now that the powers that be do not bring any of these contestants back (although L & E would be OK but they have already done this twice). Zhee…agree w/ you that don’t want to see any teams like the Tumnuses or the Cougars again. I would also like to see them reno individual homes rather than apartments.

29 Maz { 11.26.15 at 9:55 am }
30 Erin { 11.26.15 at 10:33 am }

I don’t think the bidding stalled on L & E auction for as long as we are led to believe. Remember that Tuesday night aired after the auctions had be run and won, so it was all adding to the “they should have gone first” storyline. So glad they ended up coming 2nd.

Notice Scotty didn’t mention anything about a series next year?

I agree, i don’t think Suzis depression speech at the start was genuine.

I missed all the stuff about them arriving at the auction etc. were Dan and Keith not there at all?

31 brain dead dave { 11.26.15 at 11:47 am }

Suzi working for a company named Hooker.

Doesn’t get much better than that.

32 Jocelyn { 11.26.15 at 12:58 pm }

Brain dead cave – silver as well as gold

34 WHY { 11.28.15 at 12:26 am }

Thanks for the link Maz @533. The apartment still looks good, wish I could say the same for those exterior vertical gardens!!
