The Block 2011 Grand Final Shocks: Polly and Waz Win, Most Houses Passed In, Josh Proposes to Jenna

Block Shocks: Polly and Waz Win! Josh Proposes to Jenna!

Fan favourites Polly Porter and Waz Jones are the winners of The Block 2011! Their victory came at the end of a shocking result for the popular renovation series’ grand final last night, when Polly and Waz’s Melbourne home was the only one to sell during auction (for $855,000). The houses of the other teams — Josh and Jenna, Rod and Tania, and Katrina and Amie — failed to reach their respective reserve prices, while Polly and Waz made a $15,000 profit and went on to receive the $100,000 cash prize. (After the auction Katrina and Amie sold their house for the reserve price of $860,000.) Host Scott Cam has said, “Our hearts really go out to them all. Everybody on the show worked their guts out and we’re all shocked that there weren’t buyers for every home, although I’m sure there soon will be.” Nine Network Managing Director Jeffrey Browne, said: “I am not surprised at the auction results given the recent decline in the Melbourne property market. But, these properties represent excellent value and I expect them all to be sold very soon. This is reality television at its most real.”

The other surprise of the night happened just before the auctions got underway, when Josh Densten proposed to Jenna Whitehead in front of Scott Cam and a room full of potential buyers. The couple, who have been together for five years, garnered attention during the series for their constant bickering, but it seems as though their time on the show has brought them closer together. Congrats to Josh and Jenna!
