Jimmy and Tam’s win makes Block history


WOW. Jimmy and Tam’s 50s-inspired home sells for a whopping $4.256 million – that’s $966,000 over their reserve, meaning that even if they don’t win this season, they’ve already smashed all previous Block records.

Before now, the highest profit over reserve was achieved by 2015’s Darren and Deanne, who earned $935,000 (and that was including their $100,000 prize money).

And while he didn’t end up winning the auction, eccentric IT millionaire Danny Wallis definitely deserves a thank-you from Jimmy and Tam for driving the price up: after opening bids of $3.2 and $3.25m, Wallis pipes up with a bid of $4.2m – a jump of almost a million dollars.

But in the end, the winning bid comes from a young woman who only visited the house for the first time the night before. This is after another bizarre bid from Wallis of “4,241,691.18.” Yes, 18 CENTS.

But lets relive that incredible moment early in the auction where Jimmy and Tam are still waiting to clear their reserve – and one bid from Danny Wallis instantly puts them $910,000 in the clear:

Well done, guys. Can I borrow $20?

Across Australia, Block viewers are asking one question: What’s Danny Wallis’ deal?

Scott Cam calls it “the most unbelievable thing I’ve ever witnessed in 16 seasons of The Block.”
