While we can kind of understand The Block having a rat problem during the early stages of construction. But come, on — there’s literally no excuse for vermin crawling through the walls of the multi-million dollar Bachie mansion. Yuck!

Laura then slid into our DMs to elaborate, saying: “It was f*cked. We also had foxes the size of fucking golden retrievers roaming the gardens at night because there was so much food waste in our bins It was a JOURNEY.”

When asked why she was only mentioning this now, Laura explained she had bigger problems to deal with in the mansion.

“Look there was THAT much going on that a few little rat friends did not occur to me as one of the problems I had,” she said. LOL!

All of The Block 2022 Houses Were All Infested By Rats (Happy Bidding!)

The Block has been inundated with damning allegations about “inhumane” conditions that the contestants had to endure during filming.

But the horde of vermin was a disgusting new addition to the long list of inadequacies.

The Block houses were riddled with mice and rats. It was inhumane,” an insider told host Megan Pustetto. “Especially the first few weeks when we had nowhere to sleep because none of the rooms had been built.

“But even then, the rats were everywhere. You could hear them running through the house when you were trying to sleep or they would show up dead when you were building.”
