The Block 2022 Episode 1 Recap: Tree Change Begins With Tears, Tantrums, and Runaway Teams

Finally you know what all the fuss is about.

Before even one episode aired, The Block: Treechange was already one of the most controversial thanks to its well-known strikes and lack of trades.

As we already know, AFL player Joel and his “global influencer” partner, Elle, were slammed early on in the convention, claiming that Joel’s injured mother needed to be nursed. I left the show.

In tonight’s episode, we got to meet a runaway charming couple called “Bondi Babies.” They arrived at The Block looking chic and talking good games.

While Joel said he wants to build genuine connections with people on the show, Elle isn’t too hung up on building friendships, adding:

Partially true to her words, Elle’s hair looked amazing in every scene. Now that she’s gone, she won’t have to turn on her Dyson hair dryer for too long at dawn.

This year, The Block is in the doldrums, with each of the five teams having to renovate a house built on 10 acres of land.

The historic homes are all about 500 square meters, 100 square meters larger than last year’s Kirsty and Jesse’s house (at the time, the largest ever tackled by The Block) and were trucked in from across the country. rice field.

So is the team. And what a mixed group they are this year.

In addition to the glamorous non-smokers were Tom and Sarah Jane from Gladstone Park in Melbourne. They are married and have a young daughter, Cleo.

The couple are huge fans of The Block and have watched every season except last year’s series. Sarah Jane quickly discovers that she is not shy about voicing her opinion and runs for her money to her censors.

In Sarah-Jane’s opinion (the first of many to be voiced tonight), these two teams stole a spot from people like her.

Sarah Jane believes she and her husband Tom are “very relatable” and will soon become fan favorites.

“If you see someone like me on TV, you’ll be like, ‘Yabai!'” she goes wild. she is right she’s good tv

The duo aren’t afraid to work hard and gruelingly, spending most of their weekends at a caravan park on Lake Eildon. And, as if to prove how laid-back he is, Tom gleefully devoured the lamb chops shortly after his dog nibbled them. Hmm, terrible.

Sarah Jane can’t wait to crack the crack at finally being able to appear on her favorite show. There is no competition.

“Oh my god, this is so exciting. When Gold Coast couple Jenny and Dylan joined them, she shrieked.

Dylan is a builder. And Jenny is a “tradie lady!” Apparently, people underestimate her carpentry skills because she likes wearing dresses and makeup.

Jenny gets a seal of approval from Sarah Jane, but the social worker is less enthusiastic about Elle.

Sarah Jane doesn’t have time for influencers unless they’re Kim Kardashian or Beck Judd. She said people like Elle shouldn’t join the block because they already have enough money and followers.

Funny enough, Sarah Jane didn’t seem to have any qualms about former Neighbors star Sharon rolling up her sleeves and doing The Block.

The lawyer-turned-actress and her husband, Uncle, signed up for the series despite having zero experience with renovations.

The last ‘couple’ to arrive is Omar, a professional soccer player who was a close friend from Western Sydney, and Osman (aka Oz), a property management worker.

they love to laugh But the joke may soon come down to Oz, who admitted that he had never seen the show, so he wasn’t sure what to expect from the experience.

The first month of The Block will be a particularly difficult time for the two of them, as it will be the time of Ramadan. Practicing Islam, they cannot eat or drink even a glass of water during the day.

“Middle East. Wog! We’re Muslims. We’re definitely not[your typical block couple],” laughed Oz.

“But that’s why I wanted to do this to show that we are a multicultural nation.”

Once all the teams have arrived at the facility and are greeted by host Scott Cam, the first challenge is set. Scotty also revealed this year that he plans to renovate the house he’s been staying in on the property.

Each team is given $5,000 and 64 hours to renovate their bedrooms with the help of Hipages craftsmen.

The couple with the best room is chosen from five run-down farmhouses.

Good thing Keith and Dan weren’t on the scene yet. I had a seizure when I saw Sharon stripping off her high heels and walking barefoot around the work site.

But Sharon wasn’t going to let little things like the threat of tetanus stop her from touring the site and telling him exactly what she planned to do in the coming weeks. .

These ideas, which basically involved lining the room and ceiling with rustic wood, were quickly shot down by Scotty, who wisely explained that the rough wood was for barbecues and men’s caves, not guest bedrooms.

Unexpectedly, Sharon hightails it to a nearby farm.

“I’ll tell you if I lose [taste] It’s subjective, if you win you say [to Scott] “You said so,” she laughed.

“So you can win either way.”

Meanwhile, our overnight Bondi babies were planning a coastal chic décor to showcase their “coolness.”

Omar and Oz were constantly calling the glazier about replacing the small window with a large one.

Tom and Sarah Jane were also wasting their time. First, he argued for two hours about which rooms to refurbish, before deciding the matter with good old rock-paper-scissors. For reference, Tom won.

The couple then quarreled again over the choice of paint color before arguing again over how to operate the spray gun.

All the tension of the spray paint turned out to be too much for Sarah Jane, who (understandably, given her dramatic talent) became the first contestant to shed a tear.

Sharon loses her cool when Scotty slams her eyes into the log pile room and declares it an eyesore.

She burst into tears when she realized that sticking to her wooden vibe would likely cost them a challenge and their dream home (House Four).

And for good reason. Everyone at The Block is captivated by House Four, which features a wraparound lanai and unbeatable views of the mountains. I still don’t know who can call it home.

One thing we do know for sure is that it’s not Bondi Babes.
