The Block’s Scott Cam (pictured) is due to address the show’s biggest SCANDAL on Tuesday’s episode of A Current Affair as the rightful ownership of the 2020 winners’ prize money gets called into question
The 2020 season’s monster auction day – which aired in November – saw all five luxury Brighton houses soaring more than $460,000 above reserve.
ACA claim the show faced a ‘bombshell no one saw coming when the cameras stopped rolling’.
An excerpt of an interview with host Scott Cam, set to air Tuesday night, shows the affable host tell reporter Alison Piotrowski: ‘Stuff happens, and it’s happened to us… It’s about human nature, it’s about honestly. I suppose.’

Alison then asks Scott ‘What happens with the prize money now?’, to which the Channel Nine star pauses and shuffles uncomfortably in his seat.
Winners Jimmy and Tam’s renovated 1950s house at 360A New Street, Brighton, fetched $4.256 million on auction day, smashing its reserve of $3.29 million by a whopping $966,000.
The rookie renovators then jumped to a seven-figure sum, as an extra $100,000 in prize money was thrown in on top.
The mystery buyer who snapped up Jimmy and Tam’s winning property on The Block was cyber security specialist Emese Fajk, 28.

Celebrating too soon? One solid theory was that the sale of the winners’ property had since fallen through, and would no longer be considered the top of the program’s leaderboard
Many fans have flooded The Block’s official Instagram post claiming the scandal couldn’t be that bad as it’s being covered by their own network.
One solid theory is that the sale of the winners’ property has fallen through, and is no longer considered the top of the program’s leaderboard.
A Current Affair will air its Block special on Tuesday, December 12, from 7pm
