The Block NZ


PHOTO: MEDIAWORKS Ethan Ordish and Sam Whatarangi won the People’s Choice Award – a stunning bright red Suzuki S-Cross Prestige. But they are taking home no cash from the sale of their apartment so a fan has set up a Givealittle page for the lads.

Less that two hours after Ethan Ordish and Sam Whatarangi sold their Block NZ apartment for the reserve, a Givealittle fundraising page has popped up for the lads.

The pair are taking home no cash from their gruelling 12 weeks on The Block: Firehouse, but they did win the People’s Choice award, which is a Suzuki S-Cross Prestige car.

The Givealittle page has yet to be moderated, but the Team Orange fundraising page by Jamie Best says: “The BOYS on the Block NZ!! Hardworking for 12 weeks and making zero profit for a stunning apartment ! They deserve something let’s do our part to make them smile again !

Within an hour of the Block NZ auction ending, donors had started to pledge money for the boys.
