The Block 2022 – Grand Final Auctions
The biggest television event of the year, The Block’s grand final auction finally showed Monday night! All five magnificent properties went under the hammer. If you thought the last 12 weeks were full of drama, wait till you hear the shocking end results, what the buyers thought and how The Blockheads felt.
Watching contestants Tom and Sarah-Jane, Dylan and Jenny, Rachael and Ryan, Ankur and Sharon, Omar and Oz renovate houses in Victoria’s Macedon Ranges, showed magnificent results and saw Omar and Oz walk away with the biggest profit in The Blocks history ever!
Omar and Oz at house 5 were up first, as the boys would say ‘let’s go!’ was their vibe while sitting with Scotty. The bidder Danny Wallis sold house 5 for an astonishing $5,666,666.66, which allowed the boys to secure $1,586,666.66 in profit and $100,00 in additional prize money. The boys also known as ‘the bathroom kings’ really created The Block history in an eye-watering finale.
Considering that the boys had such phenomenal results gave hope to the contestants and viewers. However, this was not the case. Tom and Sarah-Jane’s fantastic feedback from the judges and coming up first in most weeks with their reveals meant nothing to the bidders. House 1 sold their home for $4,100,000.99, leaving them with just $20,000.99, which ended in the lowest profit of the night.
Furthermore, Ankur and Sharon as well as Dylan and Jenny’s houses failed to meet the reserve and were forced to be pulled away from the auction. This was not expected from viewers, and Scotty was shocked.
Lastly, Rachael and Ryan at house 2 were formally given to Danny Wallis who had originally bid at $4,050,000.50. Due to this amount failing to meet the reserve he was happy to raise the price to $4,249,800.85 once privately negotiated. This allowed house 2 to secure a profit of $169, 800.85.
Danny Wallis has spent millions in past Block seasons, but this year he had blown The Blocks history with his purchase of House 5. A big effort from all the contestants with their hard work over the last few months. A massive congratulations to House 5, Omar and Oz, for breaking The Block’s record. Well done to the boys on their hard work and finally being able to provide a better future for their families with their winning.
