    The Block judge Shaynna Blaze confronts Luke and Jasmin amid their ‘cheating scandal’

    The Block judge Shaynna Blaze confronts Luke and Jasmin amid their ‘cheating scandal’ – as more similar room ‘copies’ are discovered

    The Block’s ‘cheating scandal’ with contestants Luke and Jasmin has deepened.

    After judge Shaynna Blaze called out the couple for creating a ‘carbon copy’ of another design, Daily Mail Australia has found two more instances where the team may have replicated rooms.

    ‘It was my inspo, it wasn’t a secret,’ Jasmin is heard telling Shaynna in a confrontation in Tuesday’s upcoming episode in one of the bedrooms.

    The Block is forced to intervene as judge Shaynna Blaze confronts Luke and Jasmin’s amid their ‘cheating scandal’ – as more similar room designs are discovered

    Shaynna fumed at the pair: ‘It’s not fair making money out of someone else’s designs… inspiration is one thing, completely taking someone’s idea is another.’

    In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, Jasmin was seen looking at a photo on her phone on Monday, which resembled an almost exact replica of their finished room.  

    An eagle-eyed viewer pointed out the moment on Twitter, as another shared the originally photo from an Airbnb listing in Byron Bay

    Luke and Jasmin’s children’s bedroom was eerily similar to the Airbnb room, and on closer inspection two other rooms appeared heavily inspired by the home.

    The confrontation occurs in this particular bedroom, hinting that Shaynna may be aware of the room’s original inspiration. 

    Meanwhile, one of The Block’s bathrooms also shared dual arched mirrors, light tiles and a stand-alone bath with the coastal holiday rental.

    A Nine spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday: ‘The Block is a real estate competition for amateur renovators. When contestants arrive on The Block to renovate they are not expected to be professional designers and in turn take inspiration from professional work and trends.’

    ‘Judges and producers feel it is not in the spirit of the competition to slavishly copy a design, instead they hope to see contestants bring their own flavour to each room.’

    ‘No points or prize money were deducted from Luke and Jasmin’s win as they had not cheated. It was felt a gentle conversation with the contestants about taking inspiration and slavishly copying would suffice.’

    'It was a carbon copy!' Despite giving Luke and Jasmin the perfect score of ten, judge Shaynna Blaze (pictured) has now admitted that she had a nagging feeling that the design of their bedroom was one she had seen elsewhere

    Despite initially giving the couple the perfect score of ten, judge Shaynna Blaze later told TV Week she believed the couple had created a ‘literal carbon copy’ of another image she found through a simple internet search.

    The 57-year-old explained: ‘I thought, “I’m just going to have a look” – and I found an identical one. There are one or two teeny-tiny tweaks, but it’s literally a carbon copy!’ 

    The interior designer fumed: ‘When you present it in a competition and say, “I put this together”, it’s like, “Well, no you haven’t! You just copied somebody else’s hard work and claimed it as your own.”‘ 

    'No points or prize money were deducted from Luke and Jasmin’s win as they hadn't cheated': A Nine spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia that the pair weren't reprimanded, but all teams received a reminder about 'taking inspiration and slavishly copying'

    She also claimed that if she were to cheat, she ‘wouldn’t have done it so openly’. 

    The Block allows contestants to take inspiration from many things, including magazines, shop window displays, and previous Block rooms.
