Their apartment won them an amazing $335k + $100k prize money! The buyer is said to be a Melbourne father who owns a graphic design business who bought the property as an investment.
Shannon & Simon have said they hope to spend a portion of their winnings rewarding their builder Moz, with Shannon saying: 'We're going to take Moz on a surf trip, Moz deserves a surf trip!'
Im in shock, i have mixed feelings. I feel happy for the boys, shocked at how well Chris & Jenna did and heart broken for the remaining 3 couples who took home under $50k. Specially those who have been away from their children for this life changing experience. Sure $10k is still an awesome amount of money that no one would be sad about winning but its not $300k. After watching last years season of The Block you would probably have such high hopes.
I am really shocked that Dee & Darrens didn't do well as they had the lowest reserve PLUS there was city views! I noticed they didn't show them returning to the group so im guessing things didn't go down well at all!
Poor Carlene & Michael being away from the kids so much, i really would have liked them to have a big win. Even reading their comments afterwards they said they would still do it again. Bless them!
I felt so sad for the boys are they were the winners but they were hiding their happiness and excitement due to the other couples being so down. I was actually really happy to see the photo above and im sure they celebrated their win.
Final recap of the profits made - such a huge difference between 2nd and 3rd.
First Place - Shannon & Simon - $335k profit + $100k prize money
Second Place - Chris & Jenna - $310 profit
Third Place - Maxine & Karstan - $40k profit
Equal Last Place - Dee & Darren and Carlene & Michael - $10k profit
This will be my last block post for 2014. I'm looking forward to next season that starts early 2015. I hope they are great couples (perhaps even a WA couple) as i really enjoyed watching this past season.
How did you feel about the auction results??
