The Block Recap Episode 17: Hangovers and the Guest Bathrooms revealed

One surprising team took the win!

It’s episode 17 of The Block 2023 and time to see the reveals of the Guest Bathroom or in Kyle and Leslie’s case — the powder room!

Before we dive in, here’s what happened during the episode.

After visiting the iconic The Espy to celebrate the cursed breakdancing challenge, our Blockheads have sore heads

Eliza and Liberty have won $20,000 in challenges this week and are very happy despite feeling sh**ty from their hangover

Steph and Gian‘s Japandi style is becoming a hot topic and Foreman Keith hates the custom-made stone vanity in their powder room this week. 

Kristy and Brett and builder Dan stress over the plans for the rest of the house, meanwhile the late nights are getting to Steph and Gian as they bicker trying to get their room finished.

Room Reveals

House 1: Kyle and Leslie – $18,352

The smallest room in Block history was very well received by the judges.

  • Shaynna Blaze loved the vanity and said it was a “bloody good room,”. 
  • Marty Fox felt when the buyers entered the power room, they would know they were looking at a high-end property.
  • Darren Palmer loved the art choices.

House 2: Leah and Ash – $25,389

  • Shaynna noted that Leah and Ash love marble and wondered how expensive their room would be. She also loved the art-deco vase.
  • Marty felt they had listened to the advice of the judges and had delivered a stunning room.

House 3: Kristy and Brett – $33,718

  • Shaynna thought the whole room was very glamorous and praised Kristy and Brett for all of their choices, including the amazing tiles.
  • Marty loved what Kristy and Brett delivered, but did criticise the lack of underfloor heating. 

House 4: Steph and Gian – $24,854

  • The judges loved the custom-made stone vanity and bench top.
  • Their biggest criticism was the placement of the toilet given that you could see it clearly from the door if you were outside in the hallway.

House 5: Eliza and Liberty – $37,409

  • Unsurprisingly, the moss wall was the biggest talking point with the judges. Shaynna and Marty absolutely hated it, while Darren was somewhat on the fence. 
  • Everything else was well done including the note that The room was very functional.


Leah and Ash use the gnome they won at an earlier challenge to just take the win from their friends Kristy and Brett. Lol.
