It’s been a while since we caught up with The Block so to make up for it tonight we get a double dose of it.
The contestants are enjoying a nice long sleep in while trades work on their foyers and Jhonno has no idea what to do today. Yesterday Madi got in trouble by Keith for being the only one without an overflow in their sink madi question if all the other teams have overflows Keith is certain they do. This morning she is till stewing over it. And Keith’s over the mess on their level as well as Maid’s attitude too, Jarrod is working solo to save money and the work is piling up.
Jhonno has risen and their budgets not looking good but that’s the least of their problems when Bec comes to visit asking if there is a leak cause there is water everywhere on her window sill and its affecting level 4 as well. Madi is going to tell Keith he stuffed up since he mentions it all the time.
The leak occurred because one of Keith’s plumbers forgot to connect the main drain pipe. The plumber isn’t able to come in today. Madi tells him there will be paybacks he says to bring it. Due to not being able to work on their foyer without tradie help there is not much help so Lysandra and Kim have a girl day. While get there hair down they choose to play a prank on Madi after her behaviour lately they look at setting up a fake challenge. After 7 weeks of being nice Keith has had enough he’s being hard on the contestants he calls Lysandra and Bec out for not completing their painting and matt putting cardboard down the rubbish chute and getting it stuck.
While get there hair done Kim and Lysandra type up a fake letter from Scotty asking Madi and Jarrod to take on camping in the park as a secret task to win cash for their budget. Upon returning to The Block the girls are feeling rejuvenated and Lysandra gets stuck into the painting. Matt a little bit stressed and isn’t coping well. He’s a little stressed because Kim hasn’t taken a table back to the store for a refund, in the end Kim leaves to take the table back so they don’t end up in a fight.
Matt has been working solo and he’s done his back While Madi finds the letter from Kim and Lysandra.
Night falls they set up their tent in the cover of darkness but that is not the end of the task every hour on the hour they must make animal noise which they do. After a while they gather quite a crowd and continue into the night. The next morning Scotty puts them out of their misery and brings them coffee. After explaining that over the last few weeks’ levels 1 &2 have had a pranking war the twins say they wanted to bring them into the fold and it was all just a prank she takes it in her stride but promises payback is a bitch and will be 10 times worse
The second episode begins with Scotty taking them to their next challenge Scotty takes the teams to see Laurie from history in a box. History in a box takes things we usually chuck into the bin and turn them into pieces of art Laurie’s advice is to just to keep it simple. The challenge today is this. The contestants will use things they find in the skip from the old motel which is now The Block.
Matt has to sit the challenge out due to his back so from his bed he talks to Kim about what she is making she has an old spring which she is going to cut and stick feathers in. matt sees the challenge from the balcony to look at what they are doing. Scotty is helping Kim construct her boxes while teams work without trouble. The winners will pick up a $5000 piece of art form a gallery.
