Sam Wood failed audition process to appear on The Block

Last month it was reported that The Bachelor’s Sam Wood and friend Paul Lange were spotted filming an audition tape for The Block. 

And on Tuesday, the 37-year-old confirmed he had tried to become a contestant on the show but had failed – and was knocked out after the first round.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Australia, the reality star said he missed this season’s boat as the popular renovation show were looking for ‘more couples rather than two bozos’.

Not this time to shine: On Tuesday, Sam Wood revealed he failed to make it on The Block after auditioning with friend Paul late last year

‘No, we are definitely not going to be on The Block,’ confirmed Sam. 

‘My friend Paul was desperate to be on it so I said, “Mate, if you wanna have a go at it I’m happy to go along with you”.’ 

And it seems as though Sam’s failed application wasn’t too hard on him, with the personal trainer adding he only auditioned for his friend’s sake. 

Happy he wasdn't picked: 'It's not really my thing. I do admire them [the contestants] but it would be damn hard work and I've got a lot on my plate,' added Sam

‘It’s not really my thing. I do admire them [the contestants] but it would be damn hard work and I’ve got a lot on my plate,’ he added. 

‘But I said to him, “Mate, if you want to put an audition in you can.” So he did that and if we had got through to the interview stage we would’ve had a decision to make.’ 

‘But they’re obviously looking for more couples rather than two bozos like us.’

Not the right character: 'But they're obviously looking for more couples rather than two bozos like us'

Revealing he would be keen to go on another reality show when the timing was right, the news comes after Woman’s Day reported Sam was seen filming an audition tape with Paul late last year.   

‘Sam was cycling along Fitzroy Street, talking about why he and his mate should be a team on the show,’ a source allegedly told the magazine. 

Sam makes no secret of his love for the popular renovation show, purchasing an Elsternwick home designed by The Block’s Sasha and Julia in 2016 where he currently lives with fiance Snezana Markoski and daughters Eve, 12, and Willow, three-months.
