It was a week of showdowns, jealousy, angst, bribes and budget pressure.
But we did start the week with the first perfect 10 being awarded for one team’s living and dining space.
Tensions bubbled and teams squabbled… so if you need a quick summary of what went down on The Block this week, you’ve come to the right place!
Here are the moments that mattered in Week 6, as our teams worked on their master bedrooms and walk-in robes:
Conspiracy theories spread faster than you could say ‘pass the tinfoil hat’
Houses 2 and 3 started to become fixated on the idea that there were conspiracy theories behind everything happening on The Block.
Kristy and Brett went as far as to list them, while wearing tinfoil hats to ward off any bad juju.
Take a look at what they believed was secretly happening below…The Block…
Leah and Ash also thought the sisters were getting some unfair advantages, pointing out the playing field isn’t always level.
Neale was back for judging and threw out a perfect 10
The teams had their living and dining spaces judged, and Neale Whitaker returned to do the honours.
He was awe–struck by Leah and Ash’s “psycho deco” space, awarding them the first 10 of the season.
Leah and Ash try to offer others ‘validation’
After hearing some Blockheads found their feedback too blunt, Leah resolved to do nothing but validating as she inspected everyone’s living and dining spaces.
She tried… but success was very limited.
At one stage, the words “actually hideous” were used.
Marty Fox gave the teams a live judging experience
Judge Marty Fox didn’t want to miss out on the fun of checking out the living and dining spaces!
He surprised the teams by turning up one night to give them some feedback first–hand on the all–important rooms.
It’s safe to say his appearance was met with some very mixed reactions.
Kristy and Leah took a trip to the op shop
Leah and Kristy forged an even stronger bond during a shopping trip, where they played a dress up game.
A car challenge got pulses racing and accusations flying
The Blockheads took on a car driving challenge that saw Kyle and Leslie take the win.
But that did not sit well with some teams.
Leah, Ash, Kristy and Brett were fuming as they questioned the validity of the results.
Sabotage struck as one team admitted to messing with another
Kristy and Brett revealed they found it fun to mess with people… and Kristy openly admitted to playing with Steph’s mind, leading her to second–guess herself.
The pair explained they’re focused on gameplay.
“If [Steph] thinks you have a genuine relationship with her, she’d be stupid,” Brett said to Kristy. “Like, if she believes it. Because you’re clearly messing with her.”
“Are you?” queried a producer.
“Yeah,” Kristy said simply.
But that plan ultimately backfired, when Steph’s changes led to delays with the shared electricians… causing Kristy to fall behind.
Scott declared one team was ‘robbed’
Arriving on site to inspect this week’s rooms, Scott Cam dropped a stunning truth bomb on Eliza and Liberty.
He said he felt they were ‘robbed’ for their excellent living and dining space, and deserved to take the win.
It was the latest in a string of surprises for the girls, who dragged themselves to the finish line and admitted to the most lacklustre styling job they’ve ever done.
When they scored big and gained great feedback, they were left gobsmacked.
But despite the great feedback, their relationship with their builder was more tense than ever.
And the curved ceiling takes shape
Leah and Ash were determined to do something very special in their master bedroom and had been working hard on a curved ceiling.
It’s dramatic, requires intense attention to detail and is costing them a bomb.
It also led to a lot of stress on the pair, with Leah even clashing with the wardrobe supplier in a heated exchange that saw neither party back down.
Will it pay off when they reveal it tomorrow night… or will one of the other teams take top honours?
We shall soon find out!
