One fan asked the couple: ‘Has The Block house sold yet?’

‘It hasn’t sold but Channel Nine and The Block are honouring our prize,’ the pair said at the time. 

In January, New Idea magazine claimed The Block host Scott Cam had ‘saved the day’ by secretly purchasing the $4.2million home for himself after the original buyer, Ms Fajk, 28, failed to pay up.

However, his manager Chris Giannopoulos told Daily Mail Australia the rumours were ‘not to believed’ and that Scott did not purchase the property.

Emese Fajk was the mystery buyer who bought Jimmy and Tam’s winning property during The Block’s auction finale in November.

Ms Fajk presented alleged receipts of bank transfers indicating the money for the home had gone through, but the large sum never reached Nine’s bank accounts.

She has since been accused by an ex-lover of doctoring bank slips.

In December, Jimmy and Tam choked back tears as they told A Current Affair how they’d been left blindsided by the strange turn of events.

‘It’s something no one ever saw coming, no one ever expected, but it’s something we now have to deal with,’ Jimmy said.
