Amity & Phil Bondi The Block 2013 The Block All Stars

The Block All Stars finale Wed @ 7O’Block on Nine/WIN & Why Phil & Amity will WIN

The underdogs when they started in The Block All Stars, Phil & Amity have proven themselves to be real contenders to Win Wednesday’s finale (The Auction is actually on Tuesday). The couple were on the original series of The Block 10 years ago.

After walking through the four finished houses in person, there are a few key reasons why I think Phil and Amity’s heritage cottage will fetch the most at auction.

  • Firstly, there is the feature which sets their house apart from the other three – the mezzanine level above the kitchen.
  • The second level adds an open feeling to the back of the house and creates a great retreat area for studying, crafting, storage and could even be used to sleep extra guests. I’m surprised the other teams didn’t think of building up considering they oversaw the entire build of the back of their houses.
  • Phil and Amity also made the smart move of making their laundry area a second bathroom, which will come in handy for entertaining or when family and friends come to stay.
  • The other great thing Phil and Amity have done is keep their style, colours and appliances neutral, or Hamptons beach chic as the judges have called it. While some of their rooms might not pop like the other houses, the neutral palate allows potential buyers the opportunity to put their own style stamp on the house.

Who leaves the block 2013?

UPDATE – It’s Mark who is leaving The Block and Dale is stepping in

There’s been a lot of speculation that someone is leaving The Block soon and we’re about to find out next week.

What would cause someone to leave in an ambulance? An accident, breakdown from stress, exhaustion from too many days without sleep?

Who do you think leaves the block 2013? Amity,  Phil, Dan,  Dani, Josh,  Jenna, Mark or Duncan?

Will they be gone for good?

What are the rules about what happens next?

Guess we’ll find out soon enough. Stay tuned.

Steve Molk visits The Block set/site on day 47 of the shoot

Executive Producer Julian Cress, co-parent of the concept with long time friend and collaborator David Barbour, offers that “last week broke the lot of them – they don’t have time to recover this week because their kitchens arrive to be installed in three days, so it’s all hands on deck”.

Cress knows pressure. He’s been in television almost his entire career, either as a producer for shows like 60 Minutes or as a show runner/EP for his own product, and The Block is without doubt his and David’s baby. They created it, pitched it and own it, and together they run an extremely tight ship. In 2013 they will deliver two versions of their long-form “stripped” series for Channel 9. At least this series they have the luxury of a ‘formal’ production office in the rented house next door to the sites – but that’s just where the live action is, in Cress’s sphere of influence.
