SCOTT CAM: Tonight -
it's reveal night on The Block.

And at the start of the week,
I threw this lot under the bus.

There she is! Your final challenge.

Boom! We're back.

With a whole new apartment
to renovate.


Half the apartment this week,

the other half next.

We've already done one apartment.
Let's do another one.

I gave them 150 grand
to do the entire apartment

and left it up to them
to sort out who gets what.

I think just name in a hat
and draw it out.

That was organised chaos.

Was not organised. We didn't
even know who was organising it.

Kim volunteered to be treasurer.

And, you guessed it,
some people feel short-changed...

Bedroom one is eight.

That's...nothing. (SCOFFS)

As it is right now, we have $200.
I know, I'm trying...

..and short fused.

You want cash?

Yeah. Cool. Sweet.

More money!

Where do you want me
to pull it from?


Let me out!

..tensions are high

because so are the stakes.

This is exactly how it's going.
I'm gonna call it now.


Stop talking over me.

Make a point. Let's go.

Some contestants need to step up.

(SHOUTS) Tools down!

The winner of this week will receive
20 grand off their reserve,

second place 15 grand

and third 10.

Winning this week
could mean winning The Block.

(WHISTLES) Good start.

So whose room will come out on top?

Tonight, the judges will decide...


There is nothing
that Honey hasn't thought of.

SHAYNNA: I've never seen that
in real life.

That's off the charts. five amazing rooms are revealed.

That is crazy!


Early morning on The Block,

and with just over 24 hours
till tools down,

Newcastle policeman Chris

has just finished laying the decking
in his terrace.

CHRIS: So I worked all night.

I won't hold anyone up today.

We can get all our landscaping done.


So I'm pretty buggered.

I'm, ah, gonna go to bed,
just for a couple of hours.

I'll be useless to everybody today,

so, I'll, ah,
have a quick couple of hours sleep

and be back at it soon.


Chris, something tells me there will
be precious little of that today.

Outside, there's a heap of trades
arrive for work

and in the challenge apartment,
Chris has finally gone to bed.

So it's just Kim
and her terrace.

KIM: So Chris just literally went
to bed,

like three or four minutes ago.

And it's changeover shift,
so I'm up painting,

and I'm sure a few other contestants
will start getting up now too.

Ah, not exactly.


Chris was out here, securing the
deck down, completely by himself.

Yet in Julia and Sasha's room,
they had Trent, Ian and Chris,

the three builders,
putting their floor down.

And neither of them were around.

So that's
the only frustrating thing,

that Chris had to pull
a 24-hour shift last night

to lay our floor down,

yet they went to bed, and they've
had their floor laid for them.

And at the moment,

Steve from Carpet Court is sweeping
Julia and Sasha's floor.

Happy Saturdays.

At least they're not paying for it.

Unlike their plasterer.

During the week,
the girls hired Paulie the plasterer,

and at 100 bucks an hour
for him and his sidekick,

the cost quickly added up.

The girls should've given him a hand.

But they didn't.

Haven't seen the girls this morning.

They should come and say,
"Good morning.

"Would you like a coffee, Paulie?"

He couldn't even locate them
to hand over his invoice.
