Last night the contestants were thrown a massive twist they will judge and decide who will win living and dining room week.
On the car trip home matt and Kim aren’t happy and think that the contestants will rig it so Trixie and Jhonno will win and that they can only rely on the twins to help them. Trixie and Jhonno are offended that they think the other group will rig it. Matt thinks that Trixie and he should agree on a score for each other with only a few weeks left money and budgets are on everyone’s minds
First to be judged is level 1. Matt and Kim love the artwork and say it flows well and is warm. Bec disagrees she can’t see it how it flows well from the kitchen. . Trixie and Jhonno love the artwork but it doesn’t feel warm. Madi and Jarrod love that the TV was in the wall but don’t like shelves on display underneath.
Next up is Bec and George the Twins think that pendent light is too big but they like the table setting. Trixie agree but the area is beautiful. Matt and Kim love the floor while Madi doesn’t like how everything in the TV cabinet is on display. The girls think the projector is taking over.
Madi and Jarrod are next. The twins think its nicer then Bec and gorges. The table and chairs get a big tick from Matt and Kim Trixie loves the artwork. The couch is the wrong shape for the room. While Bec and George call the bench behind the couch redundant.
During the night matt and Kim stroke a deal with Trixie and Jhonno to give each other tens but is his room worth that much? Everyone loves it except for Bec and gorge. Madi doesn’t like the finishes. Trixie dislikes the artwork
Trixie and Jhonno are last the twins like it Bec and George love it matt and Kim love the finishes and even though not having a dining table seems to be a problem.
Despite the deal they made to score each other 10 matt gives them a 9.5. To his credit he does try to ring but they don’t want to discuss it.
The next day Trixie and Jhonno are still fuming about the fact they had a deal with matt and Kim to give each other the same score regardless of opinion. Matt and Kim don’t recall the deal but Trixie has text messages to prove it.
It’s now back to Block HQ to get the results there will be 1 block score which will be the total of all 4 couples out of forty Here are their scores.
The scores go from Darren, Shaynna and Neale and the block heads for each contestant.
TRIXIE & JOHNNO: 9.5, 9.5, 9, 34.5 =62.5
MADI & JARROD: 7, 7.5, 7.5,30 =52.5
BEC & GEORGE: 7.5, 7.5, 8, 31 =54
KIM & MATT: 9.5, 10, 10, 34.5 =64
ALISA & LYSANDRA: 8, 8.5, 8.5, 31.5 =56.5
This means that Matt and Kim have won their first room and $10,000. Matt concedes he did fib and recall the deal but Trixie had already done her scores so they fixed up their sheet to give Trixie and Jhonno a 10.
This week is foyer and laundry week and there’s a lot of work to be done. Construction of the foyer is going to take time and money. Jarrod is going to learn other trades as he needs money. While the twins are going to have a wall of mirrors their consultant who has given the girls advice throughout the series thinks it will be too much. Madi and Jarrod are struggling to construct an idea. Madi has had enough and wants Jarrod to design it without her. He wants to bounce ideas off her but she’s not having it
As a result of winning fashions on the field last week gorge and Jarrod each won a safety deposit box key. Upon opening them gorge gets some audio equipment while Jarrod picks up an expensive camera. As nigh falls the contestants struggle to cope with the pressures of The Block.
