Twins stand heat for kitchen win
Lysandra and Alisa Fraser.

They made headlines last week when they accused The Block judges of favouritism and unfair scoring in an expletive-laden tirade.

And even though they bounced back from that now-infamous bathroom disaster with a room win last night, twins Alisa and Lysandra Fraser aren't ready to simmer down just yet.

Having won last year's Sky High series, where they were dubbed the "bathroom queens", the former policewomen are back for Fans v Faves but they have not had the smooth run they experienced in their first season.

Things hit boiling point during last week's bathroom reveal, when they received their worst score ever on the Nine show - including a meagre five out of 10 from judge Shaynna Blaze.

After the incident, Alisa said she felt the judges were expecting more from them compared to the other favourite team, Brad Cranfield and Dale Vine.

"The boys aren't getting the criticism and being as harshly judged as we are," the 29-year-old said. "I don't mean to sound like we are cracking it because they are hard on us this year but the scores and the comments aren't consistent."

Many fans thought they might be seeing the last of the Adelaide sisters when they threatened to walk off the show after receiving the judges' scores. Despite their threats, Alisa said the duo never actually considered quitting.

"It's not our personality to walk away from something like that in the heat of the moment," she said. "We react how we feel but at the same time we came into this competition to show Australia what we are made of. We worked so hard for that reputation last year, so we thought: 'Why did we bother coming back if we aren't going to be recognised for what we are doing?'

"This is our brand and our reputation that they are playing with and it's damaging us."

The sisters, who have started up an interior design company since their win last year, redeemed themselves by delivering a kitchen said to be the largest in the history of The Block.

Even so, the pressure of the competition made it hard for the Frasers to celebrate their victory.

"It was definitely a relief; we didn't even really enjoy the room win," Alisa admitted.
