This year’s season of The Block has been one of the most action-packed series yet.
And despite the properties opening for inspection to the public in a little over a week, the drama doesn’t seem to be slowing down just yet.
According to this week’s OK! Magazine, a lengthy defect list could derail the contestants’ chances of finishing their houses in time.
‘There are some major problems’: According to this week’s issue of OK! Magazine, a lengthy list of defects may prevent The Block teams (pictured: Elyse and Josh) from finishing their properties before open inspection next Sunday
The magazine reports that a source close to The Block is stressed the teams may not finish what needs to be done in order to get the all-clear in time for auction day.
‘Everyone’s panicking over the fact there are so many issues. One of the teams has over 115 defects and they aren’t even the ones with the longest list,’ the insider told the publication.
‘There are some major problems, which in some instances will require the teams to basically start their room over from scratch.’
Of concern: In a previous episode Jason (left) dobbed in Josh and Elyse for having a non-compliant kitchen, which will need to be fixed
The long-running Channel Nine reality show has featured many of the dramas surrounding non-compliant renovations which are likely to be of concern when it comes to the defect list.
In a previous episode, Blockhead Jason dobbed in rivals Josh and Elyse for their kitchen which he noticed had violated building code.
Their gas stove top was too close to the Caesarstone splash back according to building and safety regulations and was something the judges overlooked.
Will they finish in time? While the rooms are looking good, there is a lengthy list of defects that need to be sorted and given the all-clear
Struggle street! Clint (pictured) and wife Hannah had an earlier disaster with their main bathroom, which Scott Cam thinks they ‘may not recover’ from
Also likely to struggle are Hannah and Clint who were slapped with a whopping $61,000 bill after a botched tiling job in their main bathroom.
The couple are right to be worried with even host Scott Cam admitting the pair ‘may not recover’ from the fiasco.
Meanwhile, it looks as though Sticks and Wombat have fixed up their defects in time, with their property the first to hit the market.
The renovated Elsternwick property is currently listed on Domain.
