The latest episode of home renovation reality show turned Jerry Springer’s Survivor, The Block, featured a massive hissy fit from gay contestants Mitch and Mark. Mitch repeatedly sneered “F__k off” in response to scores for the pair’s kitchen before finally telling the judges to “GFY”.

In earlier episodes, the 2021 season of The Block already saw the drama amped up far beyond the normal.

Apparently, ‘You stole that design from Pinterest’ is a bit old now. So far this year, the show already featured a weeks-long cheating scandal and more carry-on than a Jerry Springer pregnant stripper special. In recent years, just surviving a season of the show also became notably more challenging for the contestants. But that’s reality TV for you.

On the latest episode gay contestants, Mitch and Mark received negative feedback for their kitchen. It seems the judges perceive a pantry as de rigueur in a modern kitchen. But not Mitch and Mark, who designed a kitchen where the eventual home occupants will have to make do with leaving their food in the kitchen cupboards. You know, just like 95% of people already do.

F__k off!

As host Scotty Cam delivered the judge’s verdicts, Mitch let loose with a “F__k off!” in response to each score. The pair then turned their backs on the host mid-sentence during his wrap-up and stormed out of the studio.

In an interview on the way out Mark described the judges as irrelevant.

“I don’t have a lot of need for the judges’ opinion anymore. Their feedback is irrelevant to us. Their opinion is irrelevant to us.”

And ensuring more work for the bleeper inserter who works on post-production, Mitch gave his favourite verb another outing.

“I’m supposed to listen to them? Go f__k yourselves. This is absolutely a farce. Out. See ya.”

    Just another reason NOT to watch reality television where nothing is real and fights and arguments are supposed to titillate the audience. In this case I agree with the judges. A kitchen w/out a pantry is ridiculous, especially at the price point they hope to get for these properties.
