The Block's El'ise and Matt demanded that rivals Andy and Deb hand over $20,000 during very tense meeting with El'ise and Matt, and the other couples on Tuesday.

But it seems Andy and Deb aren't holding a grudge over the outrageous demand.

Inside every main bathroom reveal on The Block

Inside every main bathroom reveal on The Block From Tess and Luke's modern and luxurious bathroom to Matt and El'ise's dusty pink colour scheme and Jesse and Mel's "cheap" styling, here is every main bathroom room reveal from The Block week four. The renovations have well and truly gotten underway at The Oslo as The Block reaches week four. This time around, it was the main bathrooms getting some love from The Blockheads. While all teams put in the hard yards to make their bathrooms shine, some of the teams got a little creative.

Speaking to 9Entertainment this week, Deb said Eli'se and Matt's eyebrow-raising request was likely due to them running out of money.

'It was a little bit of a shock to be asked for the $20,000, but everybody was feeling the pinch by this stage of the competition.

The surprising request marked a in the competition shift in the competition according to Deb.

'There was lots of pressure, people feeling like they're running out of money and we all played the game in our own way.'

Andy added: 'While you're in the Block bubble, your main motivation is just to get the job done, and you can't get it done if you don't have money.'

On Tuesday, fans of the show saw Andy and Deb meet with the other couples to get permission to build a terrace.

Prince William 'fed up' of 'outrageous' racism in sport and vows to 'do something about it'

Prince William 'fed up' of 'outrageous' racism in sport and vows to 'do something about it' Prince William has called out racism in sport during a visit to football club Hendon FC. 

All the Blockheads except for El'ise and Matt gave their approval, citing the missing $20,000 from their budget that was taken on Sunday when Andy and Deb played their gnome.

The gnome, which the couple had previously won, gave them an extra point on the score board.

El'ise and Matt said they would give their approval on the condition Andy and Deb returned the $20,00 taken from their kitty - the controversial request caused uproar with the other who disapproved.

After much discussion El'ise and Matt eventually agreed to lower their demand to $5000.

Viewers labelled the Perth couple 'sore losers' on social media for making the outrageous demand to Andy and Deb hand over the prize money, seemingly out of revenge.
