The Block 2023: Winner revealed after rollercoaster auctions

After months of work and drama, The Block 2023 winners have been announced.

Steph and Gian have taken out the 2023 season of The Block. The couple's house sold for a whopping $5,000,000, earning them a profit of $1,650,000 and another $100,000 in prize money.

Speaking with Yahoo Lifestyle following the auction, Steph admitted she felt “overwhelmed” by the result.

The Block has changed our lives!” she declared.

“Adrian Portelli is incredible,” Gian added. “That jump was so unexpected.”

They both acknowledged their grandfathers who sadly passed away during filming, saying: “Our heartbreak could not have been replicated with money.

“They came to this country to change their lives and their families' lives and that is what they did. We want to attribute this win to them.”

Medical emergency rocks The Block auction

Contestants, The Block staff and viewers were left shocked after somebody collapsed during Steph and Gian's auction.

Yahoo Lifestyle understands the woman who fainted at House 4’s auction is named Cassie and only made her attendance known to producers the day before. It’s believed her mother was only interested in buying House 4 and House 2, however, she was open to potentially buying the other houses.

Steph had met the woman before the auction but had no real relationship with her or her mother.

She had to leave the auction to seek treatment and viewers will never know what could have happened if they had stayed.
