RELATED: Have Luke and Jasmin copied again?
It’s a good suggestion given the truth that carpenter Luke had been filmed operating his fingers longingly alongside Jade and Daniel’s newly unveiled handcrafted bench simply 24 hours earlier than he put in his personal model.
However the couple had been adamant that they’d chosen their bench weeks earlier than seeing Jade and Daniel’s manhood-shaped masterpiece, and host Scott Cam had the footage to again them up.
However Scotty additionally gleefully added that whereas Jasmin’s inspiration had not come from the neighbours it had as soon as once more come from social media. This time her room was virtually a carbon copy of 1 featured on Pinterest.
It’s the second time the West Australian couple have been accused of being copycats. Per week earlier, judge Shaynna Blaze had taken them to task for taking a little bit an excessive amount of inspiration from a picture they’d discovered on Instagram.
Now the pair are furious that Jade is additional cementing their status as copycats.
“Effectively apparently they stated we copied,” Jasmin moaned.
“The suggestion we copied them was absolute rubbish and I received actually defensive as a result of we positively didn’t in any respect.”
Jasmin and Luke had been offended, too, that whereas Jade had instructed the entire constructing website that they’d been impressed by their expensive bench, she didn’t specific these considerations on to them.
In reality, they stated, she refused to reply both means once they requested her if she thought they’d copied her work.
“She stored beating across the bloody bush,” Luke fumed as Jasmin took out her aggression on a poor defenceless hair tie, wrapping hair with the identical degree of depth a medieval torturer would possibly apply to their sufferer on the rack.
“She doesn’t like confrontation,” Luke stated of Jade. This hardly made Luke The Block’s resident Sigmund Freud because it’s true the South Australian hairdresser has repeatedly shirked any sort of argument on the present.
“Effectively she’s on the mistaken present then as a result of if you happen to’re going to provide you with an out-there assertion like that you simply’ve received to have the ability to again it,” Jasmin added, furiously.

Jade and Daniel are lastly within the cash, having used their gnome benefit to safe their first win of the competitors.
Because the week’s winners, it fell to Daniel and Jade to host a winners’ “feast” for the dropping groups, however they weren’t going to squander an excessive amount of of that $10,000 money prize on refuelling the competitors. Nope, the frugal farmers as an alternative determined to serve a baked potato buffet.
The information went down with the menfolk like a lead spud.
George and Keith had been dumbfounded. Whereas a shocked Harry muttered: “It wouldn’t be a dinner we Hellenics would historically serve.”
Scotty summed it up finest when he stated what everybody was considering: “Spuds? They’ve gone a bit low cost haven’t they. No meat? Truthful dinkum!”
Clearly Jade and Daniel had been saving each cent they might for his or her dwelling and eating space. And who might blame them? It was the primary victory they’ve had to this point, they usually had to make use of a bonus level to get it. Had they not used the gnome it could have been yet one more victory for Jimmy and Tash, by simply half a degree.
It’s a sadder story down The Block for Sarah and George who’re but to win a single factor. With that in thoughts, they elected to drag the Hipages lever to allow them to save their pennies for dressing the room reasonably than the development work.
They had been pinning their hopes on a powerful hearth with heated fireplace. Little do they know that Harry has the identical plan solely his hearth is larger. So huge, that he needed to alter his metal framing to accommodate it, igniting foreman Keith’s fury within the course of.
In the meantime Jimmy and Tash have the most important finances on The Block (with greater than $37,000 of their kitty due to a number of wins) however this week they had been additionally scuffling with having the smallest space to revamp.
Final week’s choice to extend their kitchen in order that it intruded into their hallway entrance had left them with restricted choices for positioning their dwelling and eating room furnishings.
Tash got here up with a controversial plan to shelve the eating desk altogether, rationalising that folks might eat on the kitchen bench, the surface desk or, most bizarrely, out the entrance of the home. Nothing says Brighton mansion like perching on the entrance doorstep together with your dinner in your lap!
“The judges might adore it as a result of it’s the way in which of the longer term, folks aren’t sitting all the way down to eating tables,” Jimmy defined, attempting to persuade himself that this plan — like their exhibitionist ensuite — was something however a catastrophe ready to occur.
“They’re sitting all the way down to dine however not at formal eating tables. Everybody tells me that they simply use their tables to throw their s… on. It’s change into storage.”
We all know that Shaynna dearly loves storage however even she would baulk at that.
