“We’re not kidding that the participants do all the work themselves. I don’t know in the early days of The Block, the participants did a lot of the work.

“But now you really need a village, in every house, to get the work done in the time the participants have.”

She added that she has had the “best time” this season as there is “always something exciting happening on set.”

“I think I’m the only one who has a great day every time I get on The Block,” she joked.

It comes after Channel Nine denied claims that the terms on the set of the 2022 season of The Block are “brutal”.

According to Confidential of the Daily Telegraph participants complained to friends and family about minimal food, freezing temperatures and no access to takeaway food.

An insider told the publication that “everyone is exhausted and stressed” and unable to “access Uber Eats” with the set in rural Victoria.

“Some days an apple granola bar is so delicious,” an insider told Confidential. “Because they’re in such a remote area, they can’t access Uber Eats.”

Another insider claimed that the participants were closely monitored.

However, it is common knowledge that contestants have their own car while filming for the show and can buy food and drink and anything they want.

A Nine spokesperson strongly denied the claims, telling the Daily Mail Australia on Saturday:

While he normally oversees the projects, host Scott Cam will also be renovating one of the properties himself.
