Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers for those who aren't caught up with Season 4 of Rock the Block.
Each team — Bryan and Sarah Baeumler from Renovation Island, Michel Smith Boyd and Anthony Elle (Luxe for Less), Jonathan Knight and Kristina Crestin (Farmhouse Fixer), and Page Turner and Mitch Glew (Fix My Flip) — is made up of talented designers.
However, only one team can win a challenge during the episodes.
Episode 1 — Kitchen Challenge
In Rock the Block Episode 1, “Kitchen Face-Off,” the teams launched the competition with a hot air balloon ride before their challenge — a kitchen design. After days of creating their kitchens, the teams gathered to have the designs judged by Dave and Jenny Marrs from Fixer to Fabulous and Rock the Block Season 3.
Jenny and Dave were impressed with each team’s efforts. Ultimately, the couple chose Jonathan Knight and Kristina Crestin’s “Modern Farmhouse” kitchen. The challenge earned the team an extra $1,000 for the following week.
Episode 2 — Living Room Challenge
After surviving their first challenge, the teams returned for Episode 2, “Living Room Face-Off.” During the competition, Mitch Glew and Page Turner made a dicey decision to avoid renovating their bathroom and instead opted for a half bathroom.
Despite their unconventional design, Page and Mitch won over their competitors. Judges Mina Starsiak Hawk (Good Bones) and Jenn Todryk (No Demo Reno) selected the Fix My Flip stars as the winners. They received an extra $1,000 for the next week’s “Main Suite Face-Off” challenge.
Episode 3 — Main Suite Challenge
In Season 4, Episode 3, “Main Suite Face Off,” two teams were battling to win their first challenge of the competition. Teams Bryan and Sarah Baeumler of Renovation Island and Michel Smith Boyd and Anthony Elle of Luxe for Less hadn’t yet won a challenge before the March 20, 2023, episode. However, Bryan tried to change that when he duped Michel and Anthony’s idea to extend their house’s front deck to their main bathroom and added French glass doors for the homeowners to view the Rocky Mountains with their morning coffee.
While Bryan claimed he didn’t entirely steal Michel and Anthony’s design, the gesture didn’t earn him and Sarah the challenge’s prize. In the show’s first-ever blind judging, guest judges Lyndsay Lamb and Lesley Davis from Unsellable Houses crowned Michel and Anthony as the winners. The win made Bryan and Sarah the only team without a win so far.
Episode 4 — Lower Level Face Off
During Episode 4, the teams were tasked with designing the downstairs, or lower level area, of their homes. Windy City Rehab star Alison Victoria and Revealed host Veronica Valencia were tapped for judging. Ultimately, the ladies chose Jonathan Knight and Kristina Crestin’s design.
After the episode aired, it became clear that fans weren't pleased with their choice.
"OK... what happened this week?! Bryan and Sarah Baeumler’s design and build was absolutely outstanding! We respect all the teams, but what were the judges thinking?" wrote one person in the comments section of HGTV's Instagram.
In fact, several folks agreed that Bryan and Sarah should have been victorious, praising them for their inclusion of a home gym.
Others opined that Michel Smith Boyd and Anthony Elle should have won. "Always love what Jon and Kristina create, but this one I would have given to Michel and Anthony," wrote another fan. Will next week finally bring Bryan and Sarah a win? We'll just have to wait and see.
Episode 5 — Exterior Challenge
In Episode 5, the teams are tasked with designing the exterior of the home, including adding a "sports-themed" element in each of their backyards. 100 Day Dream Home stars Brian and Mika Kleinschmidt were named the judges of this week's competition.
Episode 6 – Finale
In the Season 4 finale of Rock the Block, Season 3 winners Egypt Sherrod and Mike Jackson, and Season 1 winner Jasmine Roth were tasked with deciding which team will be crowned the winner of the HGTV series. The winning team's home was appraised for a record-breaking $2.85 million. Ultimately, Michel and Anthony's contemporary Colorado home was chosen as the winner.
Rock the Block airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on HGTV. Fans can also stream the series on Discovery Plus.
