The Block 2012

The Block – Sun 6:30pm/Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ Tonight all the Blockheads are over the moon that it’s the last full day of work on The Block – that’s if they can make it there all in one piece. Brad & Lara and Dan & Dani have got neighbour struggles, and Dale & Sophie have [...]

The Block 2012

The Block – Sun 6:30pm/Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ The Blockheads have been extra busy everywhere this week – offsite challenges, putting in kitchens, trying to work out budgets. Everyone’s too concerned about Mike & Andrew’s two bonus points and how they’re gonna use them when they should be worried about completing kitchens and their room-saver [...]

The Blockheads - The Block 2012

The Block – Sun 6:30pm/Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ Even though it’s been a one-room week, the contestants have had a hard one again. With Dale being rushed to hospital with an infection it ruled him out for a few days and meant Sophie actually had to do some work, but was soon allowed to supervise [...]

The Block 2012

The Block – Sun 6:30pm/Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ “This week The Block has been an absolute punish for our teams,” says Scotty. If only that were the only thing ‘punish’ in that sentence. The teams have been forced through the wringer with challenges and challenges and a 24 hour marathon challenge that hasn’t left them [...]

Hump Week - The Block 2012

The Block – Sun 6:30pm/Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ Previously on The Block, Hump Week had it’s way with the contestants in a manner that was more ‘hump’ than ‘weak’. The budgetary purse-strings continued to tighten around the neck of the teams as they realise that spending lots of money eventually will leave you with not [...]

The Block 2012

The Block – Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ It’s an ominous start to this week’s reveal episode on The Block. Nobody had a good night’s sleep, because 18 hours earlier SOMETHING BIG HAPPENED. Scotty calls the teams out to talk it out, and there’s not a lot of happy faces or cheery “good mornings” to be [...]

The Block 2012

The Block – Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ Previously on The Block: The teams survived Hell Week and knuckled down into Purgatory Week (at least things are looking up). Stuff got built, a charity benefitted, fun was had, tempers frayed and people didn’t sleep, but the The Block waits for no man, woman or Sophie. Rooms [...]

The Block 2012

The Block – Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ How the teams have made it this far is beyond me. It’s only day 21. It’s been a big week for the Blockheads, working hard to deliver both a Master bedroom and an Ensuite and the chaos that has ensued has been both diverting and entertaining. It’s made [...]

The Block 2012

The Block – Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ So much tension. So much stress. So much drama. Someone’s gonna blow, and I hope for all that is holy it’s Dan or Dani – not for any malicious reason, just because I’d expect if they lost their shit it’d be a delightful thing to observe. Think of [...]
