The Block 2022: Fans furious over 'unfair' treatment of Omar and Oz


Fans of The Block have slammed host Scott Cam and the show’s producers for severely penalising Omar and Oz for breaking a rule other contestants have gotten away with. 

The Western Sydney mates scored a heavily discounted piano under the limit of 50 per cent of the retail value, leading to their disqualification from Living and Dining Room Week.

Viewers were quick to point out that Ankur and Sharon went unpunished when they bargained an $800 antique mirror down to $100 which won them $12,000.

‘Didn’t house three buy a mirror for $100.00 that retailed for $800.00 for a challenge that whatever they purchased had to be put in the kitchen, and they won with it, how’s that any different?’ one person commented on Twitter.

‘Google a recipe in a challenge that’s fine, buy a mirror for $100 that’s worth $800 oh that’s fine, but negotiate a piano that’s 14 years old and refurbished that’s a big NO NO,’ another said.

Someone else wrote: ‘A few seasons ago, didn’t the netball couple get in trouble for more than 50% discount? They just had to pay the difference not get disqualified.’

Fans also said it was a ‘dog act’ that The Block producers and host Scott Cam knew about Omar and Oz’s piano deal, but chose to wait until judging day to call them out because ‘drama was more important to production’. 

‘This is ridiculous. Omar told the camera about the discount DAYS ago! They could’ve warned him about the rule he clearly didn’t know but no, why do that when you can use it for dramatic content in front of everyone at judging? Dog move… not that surprised, but still,’ one viewer tweeted.

Meanwhile, another person said the show was ‘becoming unwatchable’, writing: ‘Three times during the week the boys mentioned that the piano was only costing them $7500. Scott Cam knew this and the producers knew this. To let it go until judging and Sunday night was a w**k-act.’

‘Omar & Oz say that production knew all week that the piano was $36,000 but they were paying $7500. As with all other things that breach the rules, they should have been told before reveal so they had time to rectify it. Creating drama was more important to production,’ someone else commented. 

On Monday night’s episode, rival contestants Tom and Sarah-Jane gathered support from the other pairs and called for a financial audit. 

They were careful not to call individuals out, suggesting they wanted everyone’s books to be checked.

However, the other couples had no problem telling producers who they think should be audited.

‘Yes, I do think that Omar and Oz have stuff to hide. It doesn’t make sense,’ Rachel said. ‘A lot of what they’ve done and achieved doesn’t make sense.’

Omar and Oz were under no illusion as to who was being targeted, but they seemed at ease as they voted in favour of the audit, later writing to Instagram: ‘We want the financial audit as much as them.’
