He has spent $43 million on 11 The Block properties so far...
If you're a longtime fan of The Block, you may be familiar with Danny Wallis, the mysterious businessman, and philanthropist who turns up on auction day to snap up his favourite properties - sometimes paying well above the median suburb price and bidding in peculiar increments, simply because he can.

Dubbed "The man who bought The Block", by The Block Shop blog Insider Style, Danny bid on all five of The Block houses in 2020, eventually walking away with three of the five properties at a total cost of $11.8 million.
He then spent a total of $12.2 million at the 2021 auction and a whopping $14 million at the 2022 auction - including his record-breaking bid of $5,666,666.66 on house five.
Whilst we are still anxiously anticipating auction day for this year, Danny hinted to 2023 contestants Kyle and Leslie earlier this season during a challenge winner dinner that he was likely to purchase properties that were "simple."
"Cleanly done, not cluttered, flowing floorplan, the less is better," he told the couple, revealing what he was looking for in a house.
