An interesting read! So they were paid $700 per week each ($1400 per couple) to be on the show.
Also something I just thought of- if D&D and Michael and Carlene didn't win money off their reserve, the properties wouldn't have even sold and would have been passed on, potentially making them a little more after further negotiations!!

I've read in a few places that people think (or wish) the boys should split their winnings. Do people honestly think that if the situation was reversed and Darren and Dee had won that they would share? I believe there is no chance of that happening. They would have gone on about how its a competition and there can only be one winner and everyone knew their chances before they started. While I feel disappointed for Michael and Carlene, I actually dont feel that disappointment for Darren and Dee. I didnt like them. They dont resonate with me at all, so therefore I have no sympathy for them (by the way I am aware its a TV show and heavily edited. I only have what I see to go on).

The boys shouldn't have to or be pressured in to splitting anything!
Seriously, $10,000.00? That's better than nothing. They would have signed contracts etc and be well aware they could end up with nothing.
The 'whole' leaving their kids etc... oh I'm sorry, were you unaware you'd need to do this! It's Season 9 ffs! They've all seen the show previously!
All morning all I've seen is the 'heartbreak' for the three bottom couples. As far as I'm concerned, they're being stupidly ungrateful.

I think Scotty nailed it when he reminded the contestants that although it was really disappointing, the point of 'The Block' is to compete for a $100,000.00 prize. The added bonus is that sometimes your apartment still sells for heaps and you get more money.
I think that because of the previous two seasons that expectations were high and everyone had forgotten the name of the game.
No one is crying for the runner up of 'Survivor' who spent weeks and weeks on an island with no food and left their family and didn't come home with the million.
Nothing is guaranteed. Channel 9 is not responsible. To hear that they'd sue because they feel they didn't win enough money is entitled and disappointing... This is a reality tv show. It's made people really, really, rich and some people not. It's about competing for the prize money... 1 couple wins.

The boys won't share and good on them.
The couples that didn't make money where the one that picked their place on the auction order. Last night showed that you had to go first as they were very little buyers out there.
I would be gutted as they are but not sure they have a leg to stand on.
Re: their kids I think it's the first serie where we have seen the contestants spending so much time away from the block with their family.

I don't think the boys should share or feel entitled to share, it was a competition and they won.

I think what has annoyed me most this morning is that almost everything I've read about the block last night talks about how tough it's been for D&D to be away from their kids. Nothing about how Michael and Carlene were away from their kids too and ended up with the same amount of winnings. In fact one thing o read on the 9 jump in site was that despite the outcome, Michael and Carlene would do it all over again. Sure they are probably disappointed to "only" win $10k, but they recognise that it's a competition and the results unpredictable.
