No win . . . let’s get on with the show

'Bro, you kicked us out so I’m going to give you a one'

'Bro, you kicked us out so I’m going to give you a one'

Amy Moore and Stu Watts on The Block.

APOLOGY not accepted.

An olive branch of peace was chainsawed up and tossed into the barbecue pit as the “bigger person” approach failed miserably on the latest instalment of reality TV show The Block NZ.

The feud between Gizzy Hard couple Amy Moore and Stu Watts, and Hamilton “soulmates” Egg-ni (Agni) and Claire Bear (Claire) plummeted to a depth from which there appears to be no swimming back.

The over-the-edge-tipper was the non-televised aftermath of Team Orange Eggni and Claire Bear’s Dinner Wars party, from which Team Yellow’s Amy and Stu were kicked out after Amy got a case of the giggles during a hypnotist’s performance.

Apparently, when the Orange duo went to collect their bed later that night from their former house now occupied by Team Yellow — who got the opportunity to swap houses after winning week 1’s Room Reveal — they were told to stop being cry-babies and to bugger off.

Dinner Wars is the most lucrative subsidiary competition of the series, in which four teams have to renovate townhouses on a corner block of Auckland’s Hobsonville Point. The overall winners add 100 grand to their bank account and all teams get any money made over the reserve when the houses go to auction.

Dinner Wars required each team to host a themed dinner, then give each other a score. The winners, named at the end of the week, get $10,000-worth of eco-decorating, which basically is decorating using environmentally-friendlier products.

Stu’s patience has cleary worn thinner

In last night’s episode, Stu’s patience has cleary worn thinner than Egg-ni and Claire’s skin.

“Bro, you kicked us out so I’m going to give you a one (out of 10),” he says on the third consecutive episode where the Orange-Yellow conflict over-rides the work being done on the teams’ kid bedrooms.

“They’re going to hate us now,” says Amy, seemingly naive to the fact Eggni has been hating on them ever since they not only blew them away at the first room reveal, but evicted them from their much-sought-after corner house, then suggested he was lazy and Claire did most of the work.

“I would have given them at least a four,” says Amy . . . “I actually would have given them a seven but then they made me leave.”

Amy and Stu wake up the next day feeling guilty — well Amy anyway — and go over to Orange’s house to apologise.

Stu dismantles their rival team’s bed, Amy makes Claire a card — it just happens to be her birthday — and says “I’m going to do my best to try to make it OK.”

Egg-ni is not there.

“We are really sorry we were dicks,” Amy says to Claire, giving her the card and a candle as a gift and wiping tears away.

“That is cool,” says Claire.

An upset Amy is still feeling stink about their score. Stu’s not.

“I scored them one because they evicted us. You don’t kick people out of your dinner party. We were having a good time.”

Move on and let their rooms do more of the talking

Claire later decides it’s not so cool, that the apology was fake, she was caught off-guard without Egg-ni there and “felt really vulnerable”.

Egg-ni describes Amy as “the biggest two-faced person I have met in my life” and the pair storm over to Yellow’s house to confront them.

“I felt like the only reason you apologised was for show. It was one of the most fakest experiences I have ever had,” says Claire, handing back the gift.”

“If you’re not willing to accept it, it’s up to you,” replies Amy.

To cut this lengthening saga appreciably short, there’s no going back from here, whatever Amy says. Stu, like the rest of us, has had a gutsful of the drama-queening.

It’s well past time to move on and let their rooms do more of the talking.

Claire, perhaps fittingly on her birthday, wins the “game-changing challenge” — a mini-golf competition — and with it goes $4000 of designer lighting and something called an “undo card”, which can be played if another team uses “a game-changing “device” against them.

The last Dinner Wars dinner — provided by the Blue Team — is a drama-free hit and, yes, in between the bickering, there is work done on all four houses.
