But the pair insisted that despite being in the ‘thick of the drama’, they informed producers right away after having seen the schedule and tried to do the right thing.
‘To clarify – yes we saw the photo of the production board in week one for about three seconds and informed producers what had just happened literally five minutes later,’ the said in their post, which was uploaded after Tuesday’s episode.
Ronnie and Georgia said they didn’t want to reveal what had happened on camera because they wanted to avoid drama.
‘To clarify – yes we saw the photo of the production board in week one for about three seconds and informed producers what had just happened literally five minutes later,’ their post began
‘Cut to three weeks later, we’re highly irritated with the master bedroom scores, knowing that teams were effectively cheating and winning – that’s when Rondog volcano erupted and the photo scandal was shared on camera…’ they added.
‘And well, here we now are… right in the thick of the drama, exactly where we didn’t want to be.’
During Tuesday’s episode, Tanya Guccione revealed the origin of the now-infamous leaked whiteboard photo detailing the show’s production schedule.

She sat alongside co-star Luke Packham and admitted to a producer an ‘ex-tradie’ sent her the image in the first week of filming the Nine renovation series.
Tanya first explained it was sent to her Block phone number, before she backtracked and corrected herself, saying it was sent to her ‘personal number’.
She told the camera she showed the photo to her husband Vito, who did not want anything to do with it.
Knowing The Block’s production schedule gives an advantage because it allows for all kinds of preparations to be made ahead of room reveals and challenge days.
Tanya admitted that she could have kept the photo for her own advantage, but her honesty won over, saying: ‘It’s been a huge burden.’
Meanwhile, in the tea room, Ronnie broke the news to his wife Georgia who was relieved to finally learn of the truth.
‘So it turns out that Tanya and Vito knew all along. So they knew, that’s why they’ve kept their mouth shut all along.
Georgia, who along with Ronnie told the show’s production of the photo, said: ‘Don’t you think that was so telling, because last night at the dinner, they were so quiet,’ referring to the winner’s dinner.
