“Biggest cheating scandal in Australian TV history”
“I have never seen anything like this in any of the TV shows I have worked on," says Scott Cam.
The Block is teasing “the biggest cheating scandal in Australian TV history.”
That’s some claim…
According to the vision in the end of this promo, someone appears to have taken a snapshot of the production whiteboard with all of the producers’ plans. Sneaky.
A Nine press release notes, “This Sunday at 7 o’Block on Channel 9, The Block Fans v Faves will be rocked by claims of cheating and dishonesty that sends the cul-de-sac into meltdown and gives those involved a huge leg-up in a competition where more than $100,000 is at stake.
“Good neighbours certainly won’t become good friends in this classic “whodunit” tale – all couples and tradespeople on site are under suspicion and there’ll be tears, tantrums, tell-alls, and even a comparison or two to the sensational antics on Married at First Sight.”
Host Scott Cam says, “I have never seen anything like this in any of the TV shows I have worked on over the years. We had to have some serious production meetings to establish a way to move forward.
“I was utterly shocked, disappointed and extremely annoyed – this scandal made it very unfair for everyone. It also affected something I love very much, and that is the build of The Block.
“There is certainly a lot of tension, a lot of finger pointing and a lot of denial going on.”
The scandal will play out across Basement week which starts 7pm Sunday on Nine.
