The Block is rocked by yet another cheating scandal after Sharon and Ankur ‘guess’ wine recipes and take home $50,000 in prizes
Sharon and Ankur from the block have been accused of Googling a wine recipe to win $50,000 in prizes during a winemaking challenge on Tuesday night.
The drama unfolded when the teams were helicoptered to Levantine Hill Estate, where they were asked to recreate the estate’s 2015 Samantha’s Paddock Mélange Traditionnel.
Despite the teams struggling to get the mix right, Sharon and Ankur managed to whip up a nearly identical mix in just 10 minutes.

Suspicion was raised after the challenge when Omar came to the chopper to tell Ryan and Rachel he was told the mix was almost perfect.
The move prompted Ryan to ask Ankur about the mix, saying, “Dude, I went and tried your wine, it tasted so close.”
“Yeah, because I’m a nutcase,” Ankur replied, trying to take the sting out of the comments.
Ryan continued to research and asked him how he managed to put together the identical mix so quickly.

“When 2015 came out, I drank it every day in Covid,” Ankur shot back.
Sharon then chimed in, saying Levantine Hill Estate sponsored the fashion week, receiving a number of freebies.
“They sponsored fashion week and we got them all,” Sharon said. “I went to 10 different shows and each time they gave me two bottles.”
After the conversation ended, Sharon and Ankur winked at each other.
“Smart,” Ankur said, pointing at himself. “Yes, that’s all, honey,” Sharon replied.

In an on-camera piece, Ryan made his allegations clear.
“I thought Sharon and Anks must have googled the recipe obviously,” Ryan said, clearly annoyed.
“I wanted to know how close they are, and I googled, and it [the recipe] appeared directly. Surely those guys googled it,” he added.

Ryan mentioned that the couple felt so much confidence after the challenge.
“It must have been a quick Google search,” he concluded.
