"Nobody has ever done anything like it." All the photos from The Block master ensuite reveal.

It’s bathroom week once again on The Block and, no surprises, the winning team was those who broke the rules.

This week saw contestants cry and then… cry, and Scott Cam’s feud with Mitch and Mark finally end with a good ol’ hug.

Here’s all five reveals from last night, and how they were judged.

Deb and Andy

We begin with Deb and Andy, who won last week’s guest bedroom reveal and once again nailed it this week.

Their bathroom saw the water run from the ceiling into the bath, as told to by Alexa. Shaynna gasped, and goodness how good is technology?!

“I have never before seen that in my life,” Darren exclaimed. “Wow, it’s very ambient isn’t it. It feels really crisp and clean.”

Neale added that he was a fan of the Turkish rug on the floor. Shaynna, however, was not impressed by the smoke mirrors, observing that it would be difficult to apply your makeup.

“I could walk out like a clown,” she said.

Overall, Andy and Deb scored a 28.5 from the judges, placing them equal second.

El'ise and Matt

Matt and El'ise changed the floor plan to make room for a powder room, which wasn't seen as the best idea in the eyes of the judges, as it reduced the space.

"The shower is huge but it’s come at the cost of the other part of the bathroom where the bath is," Shaynna added.

Darren loved the venetian wall, "like, a lot".

"I swear to God, I don’t think I love a wall finish as much as I love this," Darren said. "But it’s so super modern — like it’s a really beautiful finish especially among all this black on black joinery."

Unfortunately for Matt and El'ise they ended up coming last this week, with a score of 26.

Jesse and Mel

Jesse and Mel were praised by the judges for their impressive use of space, and their "luxurious" styling.

"It’s just beautiful," Neale complimented the couple's room. Shaynna even said it was the best layout of any bathroom she had seen on the day.

There was, however, a few minor details the judges took issue with, including the basin's lighting. Shaynna also criticised the use of "an everyday tap" in a luxurious bathroom.

Ultimately, Jess and Mel came equal second with a score of 28.5.

Mitch and Mark

Ah Mitch and Mark. The couple who took Darren's advice to "change the rules at your own peril" as gospel.

This week, the Bondi men transformed their master ensuite into a kitchenette along with a small powder room, showcasing their signature Palm Springs style.

Neale commented: "The Hollywood poolside cabana concept is in-your-face bravery." In short, he loved everything about it.

Neale also embraced the pair's risky move, saying, "Nobody has ever done anything like it in the history of The Block". 

Darren was hesitant about loving the style at first, saying: "I would never use that yellow glazed tile. I certainly wouldn’t put cyan and yellow together but it’s consistent with what’s happening on the rest of the floor".

All in all, despite not delivering a master ensuite, Mitch and Mark won the master ensuite reveal with a mark of 29, granting them $10,000.

Tess and Luke

After winning the master bedroom reveal a couple of weeks ago, Tess and Luke know how to deliver a "wow"-worthy bathroom.

"They really know how to do bathrooms, don’t they," Shaynna said upon entering the ensuite.

"Look at that bath, it’s got that gorgeous angle to it. So if you’re laying in the bath you open the shutters and you're getting that natural light come in, wow."

So why didn't they win? Well, Neale criticised the view, after Tess and Luke failed to get the windows frosted in time for judging.

He also commented on the feature wall, suggesting it was a too dark for the bathroom.

"It’s an aesthetic issue for me not a functionality issue."

"I’m going to say the opposite," Shaynna responded. "I love dark dramatic walls. It becomes this amazing pillar that connects to these gorgeous basins and brass taps."

Overall they placed third, with a score of 27.5.
