Block bathroom gamble pays off for Shannon and Simon

A STUNNING timber bath kept brothers Shannon and Simon Vos from going bust on The Block tonight.

The Coffs Harbour-raised siblings won the en suite room reveal thanks to their secret weapon.

They were counting on the hand-crafted wooden bath and an unusual tap, which hung from the ceiling, to get them across the line, sinking what little they had left in their budget into the en suite renovations.

They were just half a point off a perfect score of 30 from the judges, who called the room "amazing".

The win gives Shannon and Simon $10,000 on top of their challenge win earlier in the week to put towards this upcoming week's outdoor terrace renovations.

"We've got a bit of cash to burn and we'll burn it this week," Shannon said.

While work continues on the small screen, fans got the chance to check out the now finished luxury apartments during Saturday's public inspection.

Some eager fans camped out in front of the Prahran building more than 24 hours before the doors opened to be amongst the first in the country to walk through the five properties before they go to auction.
