The Block 2022: Scott Cam will disqualify one team in an ‘explosive’ episode


Block team DISQUALIFIED by furious Scott Kemm in ‘explosive’ new trailer: ‘You can’t expect me to let it go’

Scott Cam will dump and disqualify a couple from The Block on Sunday.

In a trailer released on Friday, the five teams stand in front of the show’s host, 59, as the results of the room reveal are shown and he gives one of them a dressing down.

Although it’s not clear which team he’s talking to, Scott says, “You can’t expect me to miss this. Regardless of whether you win tonight, I will disqualify you.

Scott then asks “anyone here who thinks I’m being unfair” to raise their hands.

The camera cuts to all the contestants standing in a row with no hands raised before returning to Scott as he hails the “unanimous decision.”

It comes after The Block was criticized for its “hypocritical” message condemning online bullying after several contestants were trolled as a result of their “vicious edits”.

A post on the official Instagram account of the Channel Nine renewal show urged viewers to refrain from “personal attacks” on the contestants.

“We are all part of The Block family and we need to support each other,” it read.

“Comments are welcome, but personal attacks, negativity, racial slurs and trolling will not be tolerated.”

It concludes: “Report offensive, harmful or racist content using the platform’s support tools.”

The statement is likely in response to the racist abuse faced by Sharon Johal and Ankur Dogra, who emerged as the main antagonists of the season.

While comments were turned off on the Instagram post and the producers may have meant well, some viewers took to Twitter to accuse Nine of “inciting” the same hatred it condemns by editing certain contestants to look like ” villains’.

“I’m afraid your show, producers, judges, even Scotty [Cam, the host] unfortunately prompts many of these responses,” one person tweeted.

Some fans even accused Scott of being a “bully”, citing the tough love approach he takes on The Block contestants.

Sharon, who competes on the show with her husband Ankur, had earlier publicly shared two vile, racist messages she received from viewers.
