Budget Blowout Causes an Unprecedented Course of Action

IT’S challenge day on The Block, all of our contestants are heading to the top-secret Ford Design Centre for a special challenge. 

The winner of the challenge – where our contestants have to build a sculpture for their house that features an element of a Ford – will win a $80,000 Ford Everest.

It’s a close competition but there is one standout – Ankur and Sharon take the win and the car. After such a tough time on The Block, they are in tears.

But the happy tears didn’t last long. The rain has poured down in House No.3 and part of their roof in the breezeway might cave in.  

They also have major budget issues.  Scotty meets with Jo from Finance, and she tells them Ankur and Sharon are $53,000 over budget. Jo thinks they aren’t thinking about the budget at all. 

This leads to an awkward confrontation between Ankur and Sharon and Scotty and Shelley.  Scotty is shutting them down and taking over the finances of the build.  It’s the first time he has done this since 2019 at The Oslo in St Kilda.

Will this be the end of the road for Ankur and Sharon?
