It was a nail-biting and tense auction day to round the 19th season of Nine’s The Block. Even though they had a high reserve, Steph and Gian from House Four secured the victory, winning $1,750,000 in prize money — the largest result ever in the show’s history! The high school sweethearts sold their five-bedroom property for $5,000,000, which was $1,650,000 above the reserve. On the other end of the spectrum, Kristy and Brett gained a profit of only $65,000 after a drama-filled (shock horror) auction and Leah and Ash passed in, hoping to secure another buyer in the near future. While this time last week, 990,000 watched on, this week, 1,274,000 tuned in for the record-breaking season finale and 1,592,000 watched the Winner announced, down from last year’s finale of 1.692m.
