Last week marked our couples' 50th day on The Block, so we thought, what better opportunity to take a look back at their time so far?
Sophie, 24, and Dale, 29, made quite an impression duringtheir convincing win over Brendan and Michelle in the Red House Elimination Challenge, presented what the judges described as the best renovation that they'd ever seen conducted within 24 hours.
Things got a whole lot harder for them when they moved into The Block, with their style constantly seeing them at ends with the judges and their rooms attracting consistently low scores.
But they didn't let it get to them.
"The high days completely overrule the low ones. When you have great days, it's just... it's awesome," Sophie says. "Wouldn't be anywhere else, that's for sure."
Toughest part: "The worse things get, the more cameras come and it's just... getting used to that whole part, it's really tough, I think," Dale says.
Biggest frustration: "Halfway through and yet to win a room," Sophie bemoaned. Well, their frustrations were shortlived. Soon after filming, Sophie and Dale scored their first Room Reveal win, thanks to a stellar guest bedroom and hallway that blew the judges away. Could they be the surprise strong finishers of the competition?
