Meet Danny Wallis: The Melbourne IT Entrepreneur Who Dropped Just Under $ 12 Million On THREE Properties At The Block 2020 Finals
Each of the five teams on The Block walked away with a nice win on Sunday’s final episode.
And for three of the teams, they owe them to Melbourne-based IT entrepreneur Danny Wallis.
The CEO and CEO of DWS bought three properties for nearly $ 12 million, after making very generous bids on all five properties.

Danny bought the property from Sarah and George for $ 4,000,002, as well as Daniel and Jade for $ 3.8 million and Harry and Tash for $ 4 million.
After Jimmy and Tam were crowned winners for an incredible $ 966,000 in winnings, host Scott Cam introduced Danny to the group.
“It’s Danny Wallis’ show!” Scott announced, referring to the sheer amount of money the wealthy businessman dropped in just one day.
“All the houses are great, even the ones I didn’t buy,” Danny said playfully to the group.

He later admitted in a piece to the camera that it had been ‘a busy day’ and an ‘expensive day’.
Danny certainly has the money to splash, with the ASX (exchange) reporting in February that his company DWS saw its sales grow one percent to $ 83 million, in the half-year ending December 2019.
One of his purchases is for charity, with news.com.au reporting that Danny plans to donate Daniel and Jade’s home to the My Room Children’s Cancer Charity.
Daniel and Jade announced in a promotional video for the show earlier this year that part of the reason they signed up was to support their daughter Isla.

He’s got the money to splash: Danny, who is the CEO and general manager of IT service management company DWS, has also made generous bids on all five houses
“For us, The Block is huge because we have a daughter with a chromosome disorder – she’s one of eight in the world who has this condition,” explained Jade.
“With that financial support, Isla can get all the extra help she needs.”
Danny is a familiar face at The Block auctions, including last year where he not only bid on all five properties but also bought Mitch and Mark’s for $ 3,374 million.
He also bought one of the properties in the 2012 season for $ 1.4 million.
