Omar and Oz win The Block: Tree Change
"We’re absolutely stoked that we took out the win this year — we had a plan and stuck to it," Omar said about the victory. "It is a competition, but seeing each team come in after us and not getting the results that they wanted really hurt."
"It took a while to sink in, but it felt amazing to get a win after the hard work we put in," added Omar. "But it’s very hard seeing others obviously not doing so well."
Tom and Sarah-Jane landed the power of choosing the auction order on the night, which was House 5's Omar and Oz first, House 1's Tom and Sarah-Jane second, House 2's Rachel and Ryan third, House 3's Sharon and Ankur fourth, and House 4's Dylan and Jen fifth/last.
Rachel and Ryan were the runners-up on the show behind Omar and Oz, with their home (House 2) going for $4,249,999.85 in a post-auction negotiation, getting them $169,000.85 over their $4.08 million reserve price.

Tom and Sarah-Jane only sold for only $4,100,000.99, which was just $20,000.99 above their $4.08 million reserve price. It’s the lowest profit a Block house has made since Series 9 Glasshouse in 2014. 
This year the Channel Nine reality TV show shifted its focus from the city to the country, with filming taking place in Gisborne South in Victoria’s Macedon Ranges, 40 minutes from Melbourne. Each house has five bedrooms, three bathrooms and four parking spots. The Block will return in 2023.
