The Block Recap: Guest Bedroom Reveals

Ffs, how long is this going to take?

This totally screams soda pop and jailhouse rock, yeah?

Jesus this ad, I mean, show, goes on forever. We were half an hour in before anything decent happened, so I'm just gonna skip the manufactured drama (and come on, if you want drama, go deep, see: The Bachelor) and get to the major disappointment that was: e̶a̶t̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶a̶ ̶f̶r̶o̶z̶e̶n̶ ̶L̶i̶g̶h̶t̶ ̶n̶'̶ ̶E̶a̶s̶t̶ ̶m̶e̶a̶l̶ ̶a̶f̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶1̶7̶ ̶h̶o̶u̶r̶s̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶p̶a̶i̶n̶t̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶ the guest bedroom reveals.


There's nothing I love more than a theme, and so I was so excited for our couples to lean into the era of their homes. Not only did nobody get the memo, but they didn't even go cool, modern.

I was so disappointed. Don't get me wrong. It is a perfectly nice, clean guest bedroom, and it was painted well after the beach box fiasco (again no judgment, I can't paint for sh*t). But I just wanted so much more: go glam, go beach, go 1920s, Gatsby party guys!

I wanted deco, dammit!!


The 20s did not deliver, but it was a sign of worse things yet to come.


WFH Judge Score: 4/10 (I'm harsh, #sorrynotsorry)

In-Person Judge Score: 24/30

Whatever. The devastation that this Jewish woman wasn't able to visit Miami, Florida from her
