The Block Recap Episode 43: The drama erupts and Leslie gets revenge


It’s episode 43 of The Block 2023 and Leah and Ash couldn’t comprehend how Kyle and Leslie were affording all the workers on site.

Kristy agreed with Leah but didn’t want to get involved in the confrontation (for once!). However, Kristy wasn’t shy about shading Leah and Ash by putting up her back fence in order to restrict access for their tradies. Seems like someone’s still a little bitter!

Leah was still desperately chasing some Block Bucks at Camerich so that she could get a $11,500 daybed and some other outdoor furniture she had her heart set on. So, when it was announced the Blockheads could do a trade session, she was delighted.

During the session, Leah exchanged $7,500 of Freedom Block Bucks with Leslie for Camerich furniture. She also pulled off some other smaller deals and managed to get enough for her order.

Meanwhile, Gian joined Steph for a day of shopping for their backyard and they took a break from The Block to grieve the loss of both of their grandfathers.

Meanwhile, back at the Block a major blow-up was going down. Leah and Ash confronted Kyle, Leslie, and their landscaper, Troy Lovett, over suspicions of unfair play with their budget. They believed that Troy was paying some of his own money towards the backyard in exchange for the exposure he’d get on the popular TV show.

Troy repeatedly stated that he didn’t need to show Leah and Ash where the money went and they eventually left, but not before telling Leslie and Ash that they wanted an audit.

Leslie stated that in order for a team to get an audit done, there must be a majority vote from the rest of the contestants. She said doesn’t believe Leah and Ash with get the vote. However, she was visibly offended that her neighbours were repeatedly questioning her and Kyle’s integrity.

Leslie was absolutely fuming about the confrontation and decided to renege on her deal with Leah for the Camerich Block Bucks. She got peak revenge when she didn’t even bother to inform Leah that she’d cancelled the deal.
