Fans of The Block were devastated when Sarah-Jane and Tom were the only ones hardly made any profit at the auction this year.
The couple, who were the fans’ favorites, were given the opportunity to choose the order at the auction, and they claimed that the money didn’t make a dent in their expenses.
The couple, who live in Melbourne, Australia, lost a huge amount of money at the auction.
They had to leave their baby girl, Cleo, in the care of their relatives for several months while they were filming.
Since their relatives still had jobs, the pair decided to send her to daycare during their weekly visits.
The couple’s daily $200 allowance from Channel Nine only covered the cost of their daughter’s daycare, and it wasn’t enough to cover their other expenses.
According to Sarah-Jane, the couple was earning around $100 a day, and they were left with $80 to cover their various expenses.
These include their mortgage, food, and child care. Despite their financial situation, the star noted that they have no regrets about participating in the show.
The couple had to dig deep into their savings to make up for the lost money.
Sarah-Jane noted that Tom lost around $40,000 during the three-month period, while she would have earned around $20,000.
