The penthouse girls Carla and Bianca have been accused of cheating, but they’re fighting back – declaring ‘we’re not cheats’.
‘On The Block, there’s no rule book you receive,’ Carla, 35, points out.
‘Sometimes you don’t know you’re breaking a rule ’til you break the rule.’
‘We asked Keith and Dan for a rule book many times,’ Bianca adds. ‘But they just kept saying the rule book was in their heads and they know the rules and that’s all that matters.’
While they do dispute the ‘cheat’ label, they acknowledge some of their actions may have been on the sly side. ‘We did sneak around a couple of rules, but as soon as we realised, the first thing we did was fix it!’ says Bianca, 35.
‘To be called a cheat is really embarrassing. You never want that as an athlete or on The Block.’
This week sees them earn the wrath of Dan and Keith again, and Dan warns he won’t stand for it. ‘They’re pushing us to see how we’ll react and we’re starting to get pretty cranky,’ foreman Dan tells us.
‘It’s taking the micky really. It’s borderline cheating and this week we draw the line.’
Insiders say this isn’t the last time the girls are caught redhanded, and Dan and Keith now have their eye on this competitive pair.
‘They want to see how far they can push us and Keith and I don’t like that,’ Dan says. ‘We like the competition to be fair, and if they keep pushing us too far, we will start getting nasty with them.’
