Fans were quick to ask if Rachel felt her time on the show was a “waste of time”, to which the Blockhead answered “absolutely not at all!”

While Rachel and Ryan have finally come out the other end of The Blockit wasn’t always an easy ride.

It was a tough few first weeks for the pair who were rattled by criticism from the judges for being “too bland”.

Rachel admitted it was “so hard” to hear the same feedback week in and out.

“I couldn’t understand it. We were getting told we weren’t country enough and other teams were praised for being Japanese inspired. We were too safe, other teams were repeating aesthetic choices and winning rooms,” she replied to one question.

“It was so confusing so we just had to decide to stop listening and go with our gut!”

It was a rollercoaster season for the Sydney couple who struggled with the judges’ feedback early on. (Nine)

The couple finally found their groove in the later half of The Block and Rachel said it’s all thanks to a magical combination of Ryan’s natural talent and her learnings along the way.

“Ryan is absolutely insane at structural design! He’s just a natural at it, I’ve never had formal training in design but I’ve taught myself a lot through reading and research and The Block taught us so much!” she said.
