Block stars Kristy and Brett launch an extraordinary spat against Nine, accusing the network of favoring sisters Liberty and Eliza: ‘f**king privilege’
Block candidates Kristy and Brett subsequently launched an extraordinary campaign against Channel Nine on Sunday, accusing the broadcaster of playing favorites.
The couple, both 34, were left very upset when they noticed their colleague Blockhead Liberty being driven around by foreman Dan to run errands and thrashing violently in front of the camera.
“Liberty and Eliza get everything for free every week.” “I don’t know how they went over their budget because they get money every day,” Kristy said.
“They get everything handed to them on a silver platter: “You woke up this morning! Here’s $500.” Guess what? “We get a handout every damn day of the week, then we’re nice.”
Kristy was referring to an incident earlier in the week when host Scott gave Cam Liberty and her sister Eliza $500 for being the “most improved team,” much to the dismay of others.

However, a producer dismissed Kristy’s claim, telling the Adelaide couple that all contestants were treated equally during their appearance on the show.
“I don’t need reassurance.” “If that’s how we feel, then that’s how we feel,” Brett replied.
It comes after sisters Eliza, 37, and Liberty, 34, went rogue in a wild radio interview last month, revealing secret details about this season’s “bad girl cliques” and “crazy” new judge Marty Fox.

Liberty took a tough word from Marty about her abilities when he said the studio space she designed in last week’s episodes would have been better off looking “empty.”
Still, she and her sister Eliza said he was mostly “a lovely man” behind the scenes, but “a little crazy” when it came to filming.
As fan favorites from season 19, the Melbourne sisters remained “friendly” with their fellow amateur renovators even after filming.
“Liberty and Eliza get everything for free every week.” “I don’t know how they went over their budget because they get money every day,” Kristy said angrily
However, it appears that not all teams left the series on good terms, as the duo revealed to KIIS 101.1’s Jase & Lauren that the groups are no longer on speaking terms.
“You will already sense the undertones of a mean girl culture among some people.” “Unfortunately, this is building to the point where it is coming to a head,” they admitted.
“There are so many broken relationships.” I think the real struggle is that Leah and Kristy from Houses 2 and 3 formed this clique, and it was mean. So the rest of us are wounded.’
Eliza and Liberty went on to say that all of the teams had a group chat during filming, but “not a single message has been sent” since The Block aired.
Brett dismissed claims that Liberty and Eliza did not receive preferential treatment, saying that he and Kristy firmly believe that was the case
