The Block: Tanya and Vito Guccione reach breaking point during Hell Week

The Block’s Tanya and Vito Guccione reach breaking point during Hell Week as the pressure to finish the hallway and laundry becomes too much


The Block’s notorious Hell Week is about to kick off, with a trailer released on Monday showing the Fans teams buckling under the pressure.

The Gucciones and the Packhams soon find themselves out of their depth after blowing their budgets trying to complete the hallway and laundry – arguably the most difficult rooms in the competition.

Even the returning Faves teams run into difficulties, with Ronnie Caceres saying: ‘You think you’ve got it in control, but you don’t.’

But it’s Tanya Guccione who feels the most pressure, with the teaser showing her wiping away tears and placing her head in her hands.

Her husband Vito also looks exhausted and stressed out.

Meanwhile, New Idea reports the controversial couple find themselves at the centre of another controversy this week when they try to avoid paying a design company for services to their laundry room.

This angers Ronnie and Georgia, who are still not over the earlier ‘whiteboard-gate’ scandal from the start of the season.

The insider said Ronnie and Georgia ‘go a little crazy’ while trying to get to the bottom of Tanya and Vito’s rule breaking. 

They launch into ‘something of an investigation to get to the bottom of why their fellow competitors appear to be hell-bent on not following the rules’.

‘They just grew very tired of it all, and felt [Tanya and Vito] were undermining the whole show – they’re protective of the format and the fairness,’ the source added.
