The Block contestants usually seek guidance from the show’s experts, not the other way around.

But Norm Hogan and Jess Eva impressed judge Neale Whitaker so much this season that he chose to copy one of their furnishings for his own home.

Despite the team dividing opinion with their $100,000 ($10,000 😂) ‘UFO fireplace’, the Englishman decided to invest in an identical heater for his new property.

That’s quite a compliment! Despite the team dividing opinion with their $10,000 fireplace, Neale Whitaker decided to invest in an almost identical heater for his new property.

Neale and his partner David Novak-Piper recently moved to Bundewallah and have been sharing updates from their renovations to Instagram.

In a recent post shared by Neale captioned ‘reno update’, David is shown handling the suspended fixture with gloves.

The unique fireplace featured on the cover of Domain last weekend after Queensland couple Norm and Jess won a renovation challenge.

Does this mean Norm and Jess will win? In past seasons, the Domain prize winners typically go on to win the show’s $100,000 prize by securing the biggest profit margin at auction.

The five renovated apartments on The Block will go under the hammer on Saturday October 27.
