My takeaways from this season of The Block

What a season it has been, all the Blockheads were very competitive this year. Some of them came in not really knowing what to expect and I think it was quite a shock for them when they realised just how hard it is to win. It’s easy for the people watching at home to say they could do better, but it’s a different story once you’re here putting in the long hours.

Sticks’ and Wombat’s renovations were a little bit too manly early on but they learned to soften things up in the end and I think they’ve done themselves proud.


Clint and Hannah got off to a rocky start with the whole tile issue, but they stuck it out and I’m happy to see how far these first-time renovators have come.

Sarah and Jason left me scratching my head on more than a few occasions but they managed to turn it around towards the end. Their early stumbles might come back to bite them though.

Ronnie and Georgia were extremely competitive from the very beginning and they proved time and again that they’re here to win.

Josh and Elise just quietly went about their business, and showed they’ve got what it takes to win. I wouldn’t be surprised if they pulled it off.

It’s anyone’s guess who will win at this point.

Another massive week in terms of space. Three-car garage, it’s gotta be gyprocked and plastered and sparked, and all that sort of thing. Plus a massive bedroom, plus a walk-in-robe, plus an ensuite again. The thing I think is that those garages ... [read more]

Backyards, one of my favourites

The backyards are incredible. Some of them are going to put pools in, some of them might have a lot of trouble getting them in i.e. Ronnie and Georgia. But I love backyards, backyards are my thing. I love a barbie in the backyard. I’ve built ab ... [read more]
