Tonight marks the end of another successful series of The Block. For the past 10 or so weeks, the nation’s four favourite renovation teams, Sophie and Dale, Mike and Andrew, Brad and Lara, and Dan and Dani, have put all their effort into fixing up four dilapidated properties in Melbourne, and viewers have enjoyed the rollercoaster ride of emotions that comes with such a physically and mentally taxing task.
After last year’s anti-climatic finale result, when Polly and Waz won the series because their house was the only one sold on auction night, the producers of The Block amended this year’s auctions so all the houses were sold during the filming of the finale yesterday. At the conclusion of the show’s extra renovation challenge, during which the four teams had to renovate one more house together, inside and out, married couple Dale and Sophie won the most points for their allocated rooms and as a result will have $10,000 taken off their reserve price, which could play a huge part in determining the auction outcome. (Dan and Dani got $8,000, Brad and Lara got $6,000, and Mike and Andrew got $4,000.) With that in mind, anything could happen come auction day, so who do you think will win The Block 2012?
The Block Grand Finale airs tonight at 6:30 p.m. on Channel Nine.
