Despite all of the challenges of 2020, a bumper season of The Block reached its conclusion last night with total winnings of all contestants topping $3.3 million.

The Block 2020 – Results

  • Jimmy + Tam: $1.066m ($966,000 over reserve, plus $100,000 winner’s prize)
  • Sarah + George: $650,002
  • Harry + Tash: $650,000
  • Luke + Jasmin: $506,000
  • Daniel + Jade: $460,000

But the biggest payday was for Jimmy and Tam, who’s property at 360a New Street, Brighton sold for more $966,000 over the reserve.

Add this to the winner’s prize money of $100,000 – meaning the couple will take away over $1 million dollars – a record haul for the TV show.

Handling the sale for Jimmy and Tam was the team from McGrath St Kilda, Agents Michael Townsend and Josh Stirling.

McGrath Chief Auctioneer Scott Kennedy-Green called the auction, clocking up his seventh appearance on the popular television show.

Mr Kennedy-Green said, “This home had a premier position with two street frontages and rear lane access.

“It was definitely a superior product across the board with a special renovation and attention to detail that made it a standout.”

Agent Michael Townsend noted the difficulties that 2020 has presented to all agents in this year.

“It was certainly a challenge with the lockdown – and we had to focus on one-on-one buyer inspections.

“In many ways, this helped us totally target buyers and personalise our interaction with them.”
