The Block NZ 2013: A Round Up
So The Block NZ is over for another year - Alice and Caleb's gorgeous wee cottage won by a mile in the end, were you surprised? Or was it totally deserved!
If you're anything like me I got totally emotionally invested and was devastated for the other couples to think they made such seemingly small profits considering the mammoth efforts that went into renovating their given homes.
This season has well and truly proven just how subjective design can be. Here, four very different houses appealed to four very different markets which was equally reflected in the range of prices that they sold for. A great suggestion that I saw for upcoming seasons is to revert back to the original 'Block' concept where all four houses begin as identical properties so that the playing field is fair and even. Then you know the results are an accurate reflection of just how well the contestants did.
There was so much with this season's show that I disagreed with, yet I'm sure I'll be front and centre to my tv for next years' show. What a sucker!
