‘[Ronnie and Georgia] were confident they were going to win and it didn’t turn out that way,’ Mitch told The Kyle And Jackie Show on Monday.

‘We’ve been there before,’ the property flipper admitted, explaining: ‘We came last, last time we were on The Block two years ago, so we know how that feels.’

While the outcome was disappointing, Mitch reminded fans that Ronnie, 45, and Georgia, 37, didn’t walk away empty handed.      

‘But you know, they won a truckload of money anyway. We all got crazy rewards, and ours is just the biggest reward,’ he said.
