Last night was laundry,
hallway and powder room judging.

Wow!
Oh!

I'm loving this.

And, after last-minute
wall and floor disasters...

It's 15mm too high.

You've gotta rip it up.
Very disappointing.

Two teams threw in the towel early.

No surprises here. Karlie and Will
took out the first prize.

Despite coming second,

Kim and Chris were
hauled over the coals.

I think that instantly looks better.

Impulse reaction...God,
it feels a bit jail like.

Got a hint of

Wow! Riveting.
Yeah.

It's unacceptable.

And, it's a war of wills

We're getting it done now! Obviously
you don't want to work with anyone.

Nope.
You just want to do your own thing.

Exactly right.
There you go.

You're being quite selfish, William.

After a tough judging on their
hallway, laundry, and powder room,

the teams are on their way back to
the Block from my HQ.

Last place was Dan and Carleen.

I can't believe they scored 11.
It's pretty harsh, eh?

And, they're not exactly bringing

out the marching band
for Will and Karlie's win.

Will and Karlie are starting
to make me feel sick.

Yes. They are.

(WHINY VOICE)

MOCKS KARLIE: That would be really
great, you know.

We've got the kitchen and the thing
and we've got no money left.

Kim and Chris might have come
second,

but feel compared to everyone else,

they were heavily
wasted by the judges.

I'm broken with the comments.
I sat there and I thought,

"Are you for real?"
All people are gonna hear.

They're not gonna see that.
The comments are made.

Our friends are gonna sit there and
think, "(BLEEP) they're coming last."

Don't worry, Kim. It's your
turn to be judge and jury.

While winners, Will and Karlie
head off for some snuggle time

at a Stayz holiday cottage,
both complete an incomplete

hallway, laundry and powder
rooms are now open for inspection.

I'm sure this will be a
barrel of laughs.

Karlie and Will were one of only
three couples

that completed their rooms.

They won convincingly. At least
six points ahead of any other team.

I feel awesome about last night.

We got the win.
Hallway week was a massive week.

Obviously had the powder room
and the laundry to do also.

But um, we came out on
top, which is awesome news.

Standout features for their
hallway were their ceiling...

That ceiling is amazing.
It's so vast, isn't it?

..And, the Christian Cole
custom-made sideboard.

This is also really beautiful.
I love the timber grain.

I'm loving this.

Oh, wow!

Go, Karlie!
The lighting is unreal.

They deserved to win.
I love the LED around the ceiling.

They've done an amazing job.
That's beautiful that piece.

Is that the Christian Cole?
Yep.

Oh!
Look at that!

It spells quality.
He's got it going on.

Laundry.
It does feel really

spacious, doesn't it?
Yeah. It's beautiful.

Oh, that's cute but um, this
floor...
