The Block NZ teams get busted for strategically scoring

The Block NZ 02/08/2017

Two teams got themselves a bit of a telling off when host Mark Richardson had to have a special word to them about their strategic scoring.

Best friends Stacey and Yanita, and brothers Zing and Ling had planned to vote the other teams a zero during their dinner wars competition this week. But whoever won between Team Orange and Team Purple needed to split the winnings with their alliance members.

Host Mark Richardson thought he put the end to their plan when he announced that only one team was allowed to win, and the prize wasn't allowed to be split.

But Team Orange and Team Purple are still trying to work out a strategic scoring plan - however, will the trust be there?
