RECAP | Kirsty and Jessie score the win after a challenging week on THE BLOCK

In Sunday nights episode of The Block, Tanya and Mark have a fiery confrontation after she goes around Bronte Court proving to everyone, they paid Kinsman for their laundry install

It’s 7am on the Saturday before room reveal and all the contestants have so much to do. 

Luke is still furious at being stitched up in the volleyball game by Ronnie. Ronnie said Luke cracked under pressure and is being a bad sport. 

Mitch and Mark reveal they are putting in pantry in their Butler’s Kitchen, finally taking the judges’ advice. 


Tanya goes around Bronte Court showing everyone the Kinsman laundry invoice they have had to pay to prove it, as she knows Ronnie and Georgia and Mitch and Mark are questioning her honesty. 

It doesn’t go well with Mark, and they have an argument. Mark says he questions her integrity and still can’t get over when he thinks Tanya called them pigs at the dramatic body corporate earlier on in the series. Tanya calls Mark a condescending old man. She said yes, she wanted to treat the laundry as a “cheeky freebie,” but she is now willing to pay. 

Georgia gets some Indigenous artwork from Indigenous artist Lizzie Stageman and she is so happy.

Scotty calls “tools down,” and most of the teams finish, except for Josh and Luke who look like they gave up. 

It’s judging time. 

Ronnie and Georgia spent $37,418: Shaynna loved the space, it just sings. They loved the hallway which doubles as an art gallery, beautifully done. Very functional hallways including the bedroom hallway, and the attic up that was incredibly clever. The attic is an amazing asset for the buyer.  Their laundry was very functional So much storage. A very strong week for Ronnie and Georgia.

Mitch and Mark spent $25,092: As always, the judges were surprised by Mitch and Mark, including the glass floor above the basement. A nice touch. The photos in their bedroom hallway were beautiful. They were pleasantly surprised Mitch and Mark followed their advice and put a pantry in the Butler’s Kitchen. The laundry was great, but they had the washing machine and dryer in the wrong place. Overall, all though, a good week for Mitch and Mark. 

Tanya and Vito spent $34,138: They loved the work from home space, looking out to the living and dining room. They thought the artwork however in the hallway was cheap. The powder room very divisive, including the novelty mirror. The laundry was too small compared to other houses. Despite some missteps, the judges were impressed with how Tanya and Vito managed to finish so many spaces to a high standard.

Josh and Luke spent $29,504: The judges immediately saw the boys looked like they gave up and couldn’t finish. So many unfinished spaces this week. A total mess. The powder room was too small. The boys wrote a letter asking for guidance, and they judges think they need to have a big planning meeting with their builder Ryan, delegate, and work better as a team. 


Kirsty and Jesse spent $44,428:  WOW. A clean space, a really grand Hamptons style entrance. They loved the more traditional chandelier in the hallway. How Kirsty and Jesse managed to finish all their spaces is just unbelievable to the judges. The laundry was pretty much perfect. Very functional. An incredible week considering the challenges Kirsty and Jesse faced. 

It is in, Kirsty and Jesse take out the $10,000 with the win and an extra $10,000 from Mitre 10 as they got two tens. 

Next week is backyard week and our Blockheads will have $35,000 to spend.
