The Block couple make a HUGE mistake in their walk-in wardrobe… so can you spot the problem?
The Block’s Ronnie and Georgia Caceres enjoyed a rave review for their master bedroom this week.
But despite Neale Whitaker describing the room as ‘one of the most beautiful master bedrooms I’ve seen in 11 years of judging The Block’, it was a mistake in their walk-in wardrobe that ultimately let them down.
Shaynna Blaze was left aghast by the ‘teeny tiny’ size of the wardrobe, despite the grand room enjoying six-metre high ceilings and a large sleeping area.

‘This is teeny-tiny. I’m fairly shocked,’ Shaynna said. ‘There’s a little bit of hanging there, double hang here…’ she continued, poking around in the wardrobe.
In the end, she summarised: ‘This is probably not even enough for one person.’
Georgia disagreed, saying: ‘I feel like a well-proportioned bedroom where you sleep and you spend all your time in, versus a place where you hang your clothes, is more important.’

The wardrobe caused them to place fourth out of the five teams overall.
Prior to the judge’s inspection, rival contestant Tanya Guccione commented on the wardrobe saying: ‘I’d need this just for myself.’
Speaking about the room as a whole, Mitch Edwards added: ‘It’s a little bit what I suspect of Ronnie. Big in stature, a bit small in the closet.’

They weren’t the only ones who were slammed by the judges, with Kirsty Lee Akers and Jesse Anderson also copping backlash over the size of their walk-in wardrobe.
Host Scott Cam pointed out that certain drawers crashed into each other when opened at the same size, saying it was ‘clearly a mistake’.
‘If this is the space you had to work with, then they think you could’ve run 600ml deep wardrobes down one side and just provided shallower shelves on the other side,’ he said.

Shortly after the episode aired, Ronnie and Georgia took to Instagram to share their disappointment that they didn’t manage to land a win.
‘I guess the proportions of our wardrobe played a significant role in our placing this week,’ she said.
‘We’re excited to revisit this space when “re-do room” comes around, it’s only fitting we give “the best master bedroom in #theblock history” the wardrobe she deserves.’
