This episode brings exciting twists as the teams strive to achieve another challenge win by renovating their remaining exterior spaces. Let’s delve into an in-depth recap of the eventful episode and reveal the much-anticipated Exteriors challenge winners.

The Challenge Begins

The episode kicks off with a cheery atmosphere as show host Ty Pennington hands out donuts to the teams. He then lays out the week’s challenge, which involves refining the remaining exterior spaces including front landscaping, first-floor balconies, and waterfront docks. The teams are reminded of the mandatory collaboration for specific exterior elements due to the shared building arrangement.

The Teams’ Fascinating Design Choices

Lyndsay and Leslie opt for a simplistic, earthy look with a large walnut door and organic landscaping. Their unique choice to include solar panels hints at a practical approach towards energy conservation, reflecting their experience in solar implementation.

Keith and Evan, on the other hand, aim to capture a tropical ambience with palm trees gracing their landscape. They spice up their dock with comfortable seating and a bar cart, and transform their first-floor balcony into a social hub complete with a cocktail bar and dining area.

Page and Mitch adopt a different path, focusing on an understated charm. They extend their dock with a hammock net and add a compact outdoor kitchen to their balcony. Bryan and Sarah, having won the Exteriors challenge in the previous season, aim to repeat their success with strategic choices such as an orange tree and convenient functionalities on their dock.

An additional Design Surprise calls for the teams to work with a local artist to create a captivating feature for their exterior spaces, only adding to the excitement of the challenge.

The Nail-Biting Judgment Day

Keith and Evan’s chandelier design, Bryan and Sarah’s zen garden, Lyndsay and Leslie‚Äôs vertical garden, and Page and Mitch’s metal sculpture option enthral the judges. However, in a fierce competition of design skills, Bryan and Sarah emerge victoriously in the Exteriors Redemption challenge. This win awards them a $5,000 bonus, marking their second win of the competition.

While fans anticipate the conclusion of the riveting “Rock the Block” season with the Episode 6, the suspense continues as Pennington adds an unexpected twist with another challenge. The upcoming episode, airing on Monday, April 8, will feature a “Surprise Bedroom Redemption” where the teams get to judge each other, keeping viewers glued to the high-stakes competition.
