Scott Cam speaks about The Block’s biggest ‘cheating scandal’ ever

‘What the hell is going on here?’ Scott Cam reacts to The Block’s cheating plot and reveals why it’s being called ‘the BIGGEST reality TV scandal ever’

Scott Cam has dished out more details on The Block’s biggest scandal ever.

The 58-year-old host of Nine’s popular renovation series spoke to Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa on Thursday as the upcoming 17th season draws near.

Scott started the conversation by discussing his plans to keep fit in lockdown from workouts in his backyard gym, walking and cutting out alcohol, something he says he hasn’t done ‘since 1974’.

The conversation then diverted to the cheating scandal on the forthcoming season of The Block: Fans vs Faves, which was first revealed in late July. 

Radio host Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald asked about the cheating plot and referenced how returning couple Ronnie and Georgia Caceres had described it as ‘the biggest scandal that you’ll see on a reality show ever’. 

‘This is beyond a normal cheating scandal,’ Scott replied. ‘It’s pretty big.’

‘Even we were shocked by it and of course we sort of know who’s done this, but it’s up to the contestants to find out who that is,’ he continued.

Scott then explained the scandal takes place within the first few episodes. 

‘It ruffles a lot of feathers right from the beginning. It’s happening on, like, day one or two. We stood back and thought, “What the hell is going on here?'”

Scott revealed to TV Week on Monday that the scandal was ‘the biggest in the franchise’s history’ and would ‘change everything’.

It will be one of several shake-ups this season as the contestants renovate homes in a cul-de-sac in the Melbourne suburb of Hampton.  

The former contestants returning include season seven’s Mitch Edwards and Mark McKie, and season 13’s Ronnie and Georgia.

They will compete against Love Island Australia twins Josh and Luke Packham, Tanya and Vito Guccione, and Kirsty Lee Akers and Jesse Anderson. 

The new season of The Block: Fans vs Faves premieres on August 8.
