"The Block" Ended In The Worst Possible Way And Now Everyone's Sad

:'(

Posted on

Australian renovation reality show "The Block" just ended with a huge, sad, depressing, very upsetting, dumb-dumb anti-climax.

Channel 9

Whilst brothers Shannon and Simon went home happy victors with a sweet $400,000, other contestants were left in tears - with Max and Karsten going home with $40,000, and both Darren and Deanne and Michael and Carlene only profiting $10,000.

So, we need to discuss a few things.

1. The overall profit was SO LOW :'(

The agents commission would have been more than the last three contestants made #theblock

Wow the block was shocking. I feel for them. Imagine working months n investing so much in an aptmt, n earning only $10k frm it. Crazy.

5. And the reserves were so high :'(((((((((((((

Seriously, WTF. The reserves on #TheBlock are so high it's near-impossible for contestants to win money? So, 3 months of slave DIY labour?

16. And the overall blocking of "The Block" became a real reality.

The Block is a popular TV show but also the move I perform whenever I see any updates relating to that show.
