The Block’s Scott Cam (pictured) is due to address the show’s biggest SCANDAL on Tuesday’s episode of A Current Affair as the rightful ownership of the 2020 winners’ prize money gets called into question

The 2020 season’s monster auction day – which aired in November – turned out to be the biggest in the show’s 16-season history, with all five luxury Brighton houses soaring more than $460,000 above reserve. 

ACA claims the show faced a ‘bombshell no one saw coming when the cameras stopped rolling’.

An excerpt of an interview was shown with host Scott Cam, who said: ‘Stuff happens, and it’s happened to us… It’s about human nature, it’s about honestly. I suppose.’

ACA reporter Alison Piotrowski posed the question to Scott: ‘What happens with the prize money now?’

Scott is then seen looking uncomfortable, shuffling in his seat with pursed lips.  

Winners Jimmy and Tam’s renovated 1950s house at 360A New Street, Brighton, fetched $4.256 million on the day, smashing its auction reserve of $3.29 million by a whopping $966,000. 

The rookie renovators then jumped to a seven-figure sum, as the extra $100,000 in prize money was thrown in on top. 

The mystery buyer who snapped up Jimmy and Tam’s winning property on The Block was cyber security specialist Emese Fajk, 28.

Celebrating too soon? One solid theory was that the sale of the winners' property had since fallen through, and would no longer be considered the top of the program's leaderboard
