One of the biggest complaints from crew members was Tanya and Vito’s lack of honesty regarding the cheating scandal early in the season.
Tanya had obtained a photo of the show’s production schedule from host Scott Cam’s office in week one and used it to gain and unfair advantage.
While the Gucciones and the Packham brothers were docked two points for a room reveal after the scandal was exposed, Tanya has yet to properly explain how she obtained the photo, instead offering a vague story about being sent it by a ‘tradie’.
The contestants were understandably keen to know the full story, but the producers were also desperate to get to the bottom of what happened.
‘I don’t know who wanted the truth more, the cast or the crew,’ a source said.
While some viewers speculated the cheating scandal was ‘set up’ for ratings, Daily Mail Australia understands it was in fact genuine and treated ‘seriously’ on site.
‘The Gucciones are still massively under fire about how they obtained the photos from Scotty’s white board,’ the insider added.
‘Only time will tell if the couple’s behaviour has any impact on auction day, but the feeling on set is that they probably won’t be winning The Block.’
