Previous Episode: The Block Season Five – Contestants Struggle To Finish the Bombshell House
The contestants have had all week on this massive house, but it all must be finished tonight! Why? It’s judgement day!
Overnight, painting has been all but complete- and it has come up really well. Today, the contestants look like zombies. They seem happy with the progress thus far. Sophie & Dale’s quirky bedroom looks the best so far. And finally, Dale has been able to have a crack at his front yard, and he makes good progress.
Brad & Lara have had problems all week, and now their kitchen sink seems to be a problem now as it is the wrong shape. Brad wants to attempt cutting out the sink, which should be a professional job. Keith does find someone to do the job instead!
Meanwhile, the brothers have so much to do in such little time. They haven’t even painted that much nor do they have much furniture! So what the hell have they been doing when they shop for five hours straight? Buying Maccas?
On the flip side, Brad & Lara are almost finished with their laundry. They move on with the bedroom and they are almost ready to decorate after painting and carpeting it. Dan & Dani are getting their BBQ installed. And what are the boys doing? Shopping.
The next day is reveal day! The brothers are still running late! Christ. Soon though, all time is up. But, before anything- the contestants head into town where Shelley gives the contestants a makeover! While that occurs, the judging begins with the three judges and some special guests- all of last year’s contestants. Oh wow, this is awesome!
