Unfinished rooms and drama on Blocks site mean Hell Week has really and truly lived up to its name again.

Josh and Luke admit defeat when they fail to complete their walks and laundry in time for detection. However, the other teams manage to get through, and the referees Shaynna Blaze, Darren Palmer and Neale Whitaker are blown away by the impressive space.

Before the judges make Tanya furious at Mark as she turns to him to prove she paid Kinsman for her laundry cabinet. Their conversation resumes unresolved tension, which seems unlikely to end when the houses are finished.

This drama starts when Tanya makes the rounds to show the other teams the invoice that President Keith handed her for the late installation. It’s a gesture reminiscent of the apology tour Tanya went on after revealing her involvement in the cheat saga, and it’s just as good with Mark now as it was then.

Tanya tells Mark that her and Vito’s living and dining room were so large that they did not have time to get their laundry ready for installation of the cabinet when Kinsman was booked in. So they decided to do it during the wash week in that this meant they had to pay, unlike the other teams that were ready before the deadline.

“That did not seem to be the case … we actually gave Bryce [from Kinsman] a call because we know Bryce and said ‘Have you installed any laundry?’ … ‘Did you pay for it?’, ‘Says Mark, shaking his head sideways.

“Did he say no?” Tanya asks before suggesting he just jumps over to house 3 and asks them in person next time.

But Mark feels that the “pigs” comment Tanya made during the dramatic body corporate meeting after the cheating scandal has never been resolved.

“Oh, that behavior was not the person,” Tanya says.

Mark replies, “You called us pigs.”

“It was an analogy to the behavior,” Tanya tries to explain, insisting that it was not directed at him, but all that day.

“I want to apologize to you because I took it personally that I had it with you,” she says.

Mark does not accept the apology, and the conversation goes on and on, while Vito stands in the distance and gestures for a time-out.

“Going forward, we have three weeks left so we can clean the air?” Tanya wonders.

Not ready to put the tension aside Mark says to her, “I just want to deal with it.”

Later in an interview with the camera, a producer asks Tanya if she stands by her claim that she would always pay because they had her on camera and said “we did not have to pay for that”.

“Did I? … Because money was never discussed probably … so I probably thought they might do it for free for us like everyone else,” she says, suggesting it would have been reasonable even if they missed Deadlines.

“It would have been a naughty freebie, but that was not the case, of course we had to pay. But I was hoping we did not.”

So with that kind of clarified, let’s visit Block Headquarters to hear host Scott Cam read the judges’ feedback.

Ronnie and Georgia

The judges are shocked at the beauty of House 1’s hallway as they walk in the front door.

Neale loves the way Ronnie and Georgia have turned the hallway into a kind of art gallery with meaningful paintings on display. His only negative was the choice of pendant, and in true Neale style, he would have preferred a table lamp.

As for the laundry, Shaynna, Darren and Neale love it too. Darren is happy to see laundry baskets, while Shaynna and Neale are happy that the couple remembered a broom closet.

“It’s just slim. Simple and slim,” says Shaynna.

However, the judges were surprised to see Ronnie and Georgia forget to remove a strip of masking tape from the room. But overall, they feel the couple has redeemed themselves for not ending Hallway Week in 2017.

Mitch and Mark

While Mitch and Mark do not have a hallway in their kitchen and living rooms, they manage to impress at the entrance with a large work of art and glass floor over their basement stairs.

The hallway leading to the bedrooms is well received for its layout and the way the walls fold into each other.

Going on to the laundry, the judges are excited to see the addition of a pantry along the way, something they feel was missing in their kitchen.

Shaynna, Darren and Neale have the most positive things to say about the laundry.

“This is huge. We have matching sinks, which is perfect, I think it’s beautiful. It’s stylish, I love this little open part. And when you have the door open, it connects beautifully,” says Shaynna.

As for the negatives, the color of the laminate on the storage cabinet by the door does not balance with the other colors in the room.

“It feels almost unrenovated compared to the rest of it, it’s like the bit that has not been done or has been forgotten,” Neale says.

Tanya and Vito

The study nook is first up for the judges, who think the carpentry design on the desk and shelves fits the rest of the home. They also like the glass door between the work space and the living room, but feel that the choice of artwork lets the space fall.

“The three works of art bother me a little. They look a little cheap to me,” says Neale.

Next up is the powder room, which is generally “sweet”, but Shaynna feels the styling has failed. And the choice of mirror with a graphic on with a lipstick sitting on a tongue gets mixed reviews.

“I think it’s one of the ugliest things I’ve ever seen,” Neale admits, while Darren feels it’s quirky.

When moving to the laundry, the judges think it is “cute”, although it does not work well to have drawers in the closet when the laundry door is also open. Shaynna also worries that there is not enough space to fold clothes and do other laundry tasks.

A polarizing move lets the judges split

Josh and Luke

There were confused glances as the judges entered house 4 and realized that a wall had been removed. Darren thinks this will improve the intrusion when the living room and dining room are finished, but Shaynna thinks they have cut the wall too far back, and Neale simply does not like it.

In general, the space they enter is a literal mess, and they can already tell that the twins failed to finish their hallways and laundry.

Then the judges find the powder room unfinished and think it is so small that you can wash your hands while sitting on the toilet.

However, the laundry was finished and the judges think it was well planned. Neale believes this is a sign of hope for the twins, just as Darren finds an apology from Josh and Luke.

“It starts with ‘Sorry’. They do not come up with excuses, they said, they take the blame for not completing the sections and they are not happy with the standard of finish,” Darren sums up.

“Guys, you’re almost there. You’re almost there. Don’t give up,” he adds.

Kirsty and Jesse

The judges are blown away when they enter house 5, and love almost everything in the hallway.

“Look at this beautiful runner running in the hallway, and just taking your eye off the beautiful living room,” Neale says.

Shaynna adds: “And look at the finishing, like all this drawing, cornicing, the architraves. And we have a bench seat [with storage]. Schoolbags go in there, shoes – love it. There’s a lot of work in here. This is incredible. “

Moving on to the powder room, the judges were amazed to find a full bathroom instead. Darren loves the tiles, which he thinks are smartly used just on the wet areas to save money.

Next up is the laundry, which the judges think ties beautifully into the kitchen. It has the same gingham wallpaper and blue and gold case.

“I mean it’s 100 percent focus on functionality, but without sacrificing aesthetics. It’s the perfect marriage between the two things. When they get it right, they get it right, and god, it makes you smile, not true? “says Neale.

Another win for Kirsty and Jesse!

The pair also scored 10s from Shaynna and Neale, giving them an extra $ 10,000 on top of the $ 10,000 they get to win. Ronnie and Georgia also got a 10 from Shaynna and earned them $ 5,000.

The victory is especially meaningful for Kirsty and Jesse after Kirsty’s grandmother died earlier this week. She thanked Ronnie and Georgia and Mitch and Mark for helping paint while they were out of place to be with family.

“So many different emotions. Happy and sad at the same time. I think my nan would be very proud of us this week for what we achieved and I think she might even have played a little role in getting us over the line.Somehow late last night she just gave us the extra bit of energy to keep going when we want to call it that, says Kirsty. “It’s great to end this week like this. “
