There was another reality grand final on TV last night, as Nine’s Reno Rumble drew to a close.
New South Wales partners John and Lisa defeated Victorian couple Scott and Nadia by just a single point.
They take home the $100,000 prize after judges Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan turned on the emotion during final scores.
The final concluded a failed run by Nine’s series, never managing to rise above 500,000 viewers. But Nine moved quickly after realising the audience had not connected with the series, confining its 7:30pm losses to the Easter non-ratings period and replacing it with the more-successful Married at First Sight.
Nine still has a 2016 season of The Block due to begin production, but the failure of Reno Rumble suggests renovation fatigue may spread -a theory Seven is about to test with House Rules.
