They are the favourites to win The Block, but if reality TV has taught us anything it’s this: Don’t assume anything.
Kyal and Kara are the favourites to win The Block Fans v Faves tonight. The public says it, the bookmakers are saying it too (and if you’re going to trust anyone, trust the people who are willing to put their money on an outcome). But there’s one team who pose a genuine threat to Kyal and Kara’s seemingly in-the-bag victory – and it’s the boys, Brad and Dale.
Kyal and Kara have been a pretty formidable force. The Central Coast pair who have been avid viewers of the show for years have won endless challenges and produced amazing results.
Their relationship is solid (seemingly in both real and TV reality terms), their relaxed and laid-back approach has served them well and the results have been stunning.
When asked if they think they will win Kara told Nine, “I definitely think we have a chance of winning. But I wouldn’t say we feel 100 percent confident because they’re all so different (the apartments)."
"We’ve done all we can. The thing that makes us feel good is that no matter what happens we’re really happy with what we’ve done. I wouldn’t say confident is the right word – I’d say optimistic.”
Reasons Kyal and Kara may win:
* Amazing bathroom
* Gorgeous bedroom
* Excellent Kitchen
What lets them down:
* Poor use of space in the living area and the lounge is too small
* Ugly cupboards in the kitchen and 'unfinished' master bedroom
The Block Fans v Favs has been a surprising series with teams fighting with each other, with crews and with producers. The team who have lashed out the most are definitely the twins.
Alisa and Lysandra have struggled this season with some rooms being described as 'try hard' and others giving a glimpse of their former glory. It has been a hard thud back down to earth for the pair who could do no wrong in 2013.
They won The Block Sky High just last year and launched an online furniture store called alcollections.com.au. Then we found out that Lysandra and her husband Ben had split. The couple have two children, Emerson, two, and Cohen, one.
Alisa is married with one child, son Nate. Both of the girls have struggled being away from their children and have also found it difficult to cope with negative feedback on some of their room reveals.
The twins have openly criticised the show, saying they regret returning to the series. They claim the show decided early on who they wanted to win. “It’s obvious (who is going to win), isn’t it," Alisa said.
