Two of the houses on this year’s season of The Block have reportedly been egged ahead of Sunday night’s highly-anticipated finale.
“I cannot confirm nor deny that two nights ago, potentially someone might have got eggs thrown at the side of their house,” he claimed.
“I’m not confirming or denying but that may have happened.”
“I’d like to think it never happened just quietly, but these things happen,” he said.
It’s unknown whether the incident will be mentioned during the upcoming auctions, which will be filmed on Saturday and air on Channel Nine on Sunday evening.
Channel Nine rushes to film last-minute footage for the finale
As this year’s season of The Block approaches its end, Channel Nine has reportedly requested more footage of the teams getting along to include in the final episode.
An insider tells Yahoo Lifestyle that while cameras usually continue rolling until the auction, producers made sure to reunite the contestants so the show can end on a positive note.
Channel Nine is said to have made the last-minute decision after listening to feedback from viewers that the “toxic drama” between the cast has made the show “unwatchable” - despite this year’s ratings being higher than last season’s.
“A couple of the houses were concerned there was a MAFS-style dinner party being set up to capture the current behind-the-scenes tension, but it is the opposite,” the source shares.
“The houses have been seen filming in Melbourne CBD in fun environments so the footage will book-end the auctions.”
Host Scott Cam took the cast to see Elvis: A Musical Revolution a few days ago, and the whole filming process this week is said to have been “cathartic” for everyone.
