‘When we watched The Block at home… I think they left a lot of drama out,’ Jesse said. 

‘If they left everything in that season, they wouldn’t have had any building in there as well.’

He added: ‘We tried our best to avoid it everyday. But there was lots left out.’

Kirsty chimed in, adding: ‘It definitely wasn’t made up drama!’

The pair also reflected on their time on the show, with country music star Kirsty saying: ‘It was the most amazing and hardest experience in our lives, but so rewarding’.

The cheating scandal on the show last year made headlines at the time. 

Contestant Tanya Guccione and husband Vito found themselves at the centre of the cheating scandal early in the season after Tanya obtained a photo of the show’s production schedule on a whiteboard.

Anyone who saw the photo would have the advantage of being able to plan their specifications weeks in advance or pre-order something for a specific room.

While the Gucciones and the Packham twins, Josh and Luke, were each docked two points for a room reveal after the scandal was exposed, Tanya never properly explained how she obtained the photo, instead giving a vague story about being sent it by a ‘tradie’. 

Josh and Luke were accused early in the season of trying to obtain secret information that would put them at an advantage over their rivals.

At the time, host Scott Cam said he’d ‘never seen anything like this in any of the TV shows I have worked on over the years’.

During the finale of the hit Channel Nine show, the brothers mutually agreed to finally reveal the truth about the cheating scandal, admitting that they were aware of the schedule ahead of time – but did not themselves take the image.

The pair said that Tanya took the image.

After it all came out in the wash however, Tanya broke down and finally took responsibility for the photo after constant denials.

‘What I want to say is that I am obviously take full responsibility for this situation and I am sorry, I am truly sorry. Yes, I did. I took the photograph,’ she said, breaking down.

She added: ‘I am not a stupid woman but I did a stupid thing. We take responsibility for what happened and where it ended up after that was obviously out of my power, but I started it.’ 

Kirsty and Jesse are backing the Optus Tradie Pit Stop, which aims to support local tradies in the job to remain connected to their communities and work contacts. Three events took place at Mitre 10 this month across NSW, QLD, and VIC.
