    I love the building.
    I don't mind any of the couples although the dark haired girl from the couple will irritate me too!
    I know! What's with the writing lines for the boys but letting the younger couple get away with using a builder from last season? Both broke the rules.

    I do love the block but when the foremen and judges start changing up the rules depending on the couple, I get so frustrated!

    It was an old soap factory I believe. It was then going to be transformed into a school about 2 years ago and that fell through and The Block bought it.

    The blonde from the female couple is going to shiit me. She cried about 7 times in just this one ep. Honestly I predicted her partner was going to be the crier. I was wrong!!

    Just catching up. We missed last night because we were out so tuning in tonight for the first time. Will let you know what I think when I've sussed out the couples. I like the 2 teachers so far, don't take things too seriously and they look like they're in it for some fun. We gave up on the block for awhile after Darren and Dee got a second run.

    Um... Either last night was not a true representation or the block did play shenanigans on us!
    Weren't the girls required to return just about EVERYTHING? Yet that room had quite a bit of stuff in it!!

    I think she probably just went OTT and this was what they kept. She's an interior designer so I dare say she has a different expectation on bare minimum.

    This! Plus they both tend to get a bit too upset over little things so take 'everything' back just meant, take the 24 carat gold side table made by blind monks in Tibet back.... Oh woe is us! Kind of thing

    I found everything all the couples did was very cliqued(sp?) other than the girls in the bedroom - their bathroom was just boring.

    Budget won't stretch far for those pair if they go splashing the cash! Do these contestants not watch previous series or what?!?

    Not well enough by the look of things.

    Surely if you knew you were going on the show you would research builders and trades to contact, Google the crap out of current trends, find out what the judges like (Eg Shayna loves storage), what is the Pantone colour of the year, what colours go with it, what your style will be, what order you need your trades to come in and what each trade does.
