Kyal and Kara: ‘Our reserve was too high’

The favourites to win The Block, Kyal and Kara Demmrich, have taken a swipe at the reserve set on their apartment before their unexpected defeat in the show’s finale.

The NSW Central Coast “Super Ks” were given the highest reserve of any apartment – $1.9 million – after a stellar series that saw them win more challenges and room reveals than any other couple.

With their mega budget and winning streak, Kyal and Kara were tipped as the hot favourites to take out the finale, but finished third behind Steve and Chantelle and Alisa and Lysandra.

“We got our reserves and we thought they were pretty high,” Kyal said after the final auction.

“But there was quite a big gap between them so we originally thought they might have been a bit tighter.”

The Super Ks’ initial reserve was reduced to $1,872,750, only below Steve and Chantelle’s ($1.759 million), after the deduction of $27,250 as a result of their competition win with Dale and Brad in the final week.

“They did go in a reasonable order to what we thought, ours being the highest, Steve and Chantelle’s second, third boys and fourth the girls,” Kyal said.

“But there was quite a big gap between them so we originally thought they might have been a bit tighter.”
