The Block’s biggest scandal is about to hit
Tempers will flare and friendships will never be the same when the biggest scandal to hit The Block in its history threatens to upend the competition and unravel the whole series.
This Sunday at 7 o’Block on Channel 9, The Block Fans v Faves will be rocked by claims of cheating and dishonesty that sends the cul-de-sac into meltdown and gives those involved a huge leg-up in a competition where more than $100,000 is at stake.
Good neighbours certainly won’t become good friends in this classic “whodunit” tale – all couples and tradespeople on site are under suspicion and there’ll be tears, tantrums, tell-alls, and even a comparison or two to the sensational antics on Married at First Sight.
The Block host, Scott Cam, said the cheating scandal has had a big impact on every renovation couple and almost jeopardised the integrity of the show, which is in its 17th season.
“I have never seen anything like this in any of the TV shows I have worked on over the years. We had to have some serious production meetings to establish a way to move forward,” he said.
“I was utterly shocked, disappointed and extremely annoyed – this scandal made it very unfair for everyone. It also affected something I love very much, and that is the build of The Block.
“There is certainly a lot of tension, a lot of finger pointing and a lot of denial going on.”
Despite the tumultuous week, the Fans and Faves are still digging deeper than ever, pulling off some of the most luxurious room reveals the show has ever seen, but with a unique twist – it’s Basement week, a first for The Block.
The Block airs 7pm Sunday and airs 7:30pm Monday – Wednesday on Nine
