We round up all the looks from blank canvas week and explain the disappointing reason why this week’s winner is yet to be announced
The Block NZ: Inside this week’s dramatic blank canvas room reveal
For such a plain room reveal theme, ‘blank canvas week’ has been surprisingly dramatic on The Block NZ. From unsafe building sites to unsanitary plumbing, site foreman Peter Wolfkamp was on the war path as he tried to make sure the teams adhered to basic health and safety rules.
Time penalties were dealt out as punishment and Ben and Tom struggled the most to complete their ambitious room reveal concept. The time constraints unfortunately got the better of them and the Auckland buddies were left with an incomplete space and less-than-impressed judges.
Claire and Agni, on the other hand, really impressed the judges with their multi-use space. Kristina commended the Hamilton couple on their styling and the improvements they’ve made since their disastrous family bathroom reveal.
An overwhelming week left Chlo and Em feeling tired and teary, and not quite sure about how to use their landing space effectively. The judges weren’t sold either and felt the dark wallpaper made the space feel too cold.
After breaking The Block NZ record for the most number of room reveal wins in a row for their guest bedroom, family bathroom and kid’s bedroom, Amy and Stu looked set to add another notch to their room-reveal belt. But revelations of cheating have tripped Team Gizzy right before the finish line.
The incident that sparked all the drama was Peter Wolfkamp discovering Amy and Stu’s electrician working 20 minutes after ‘tools down’. An outraged Peter confronted the pair and later went on to say this was a deliberate attempt to “trick your way through this process”.
Now we have to wait to find out what this means for their score and who will be crowned this week’s room reveal winner. Let’s see if Chlo and Em choose to play their plus 1 and minus 1 on the scoreboard and finally take home a room reveal win.
