Bryan Baeumler skips filming of ‘Rock the Block’
The fourth season of HGTV’s “Rock the Block” kicked off tonight, March 6th, with the premiere episode. The four teams (Bryan and Sarah Baeumler from “Renovation Island”, Michel Smith Boyd and Anthony Elle from “Luxe for Less”, Mitch Glew and Page Turner from “Fix My Flip” and Jonathan Knight and Kristina Crestin from “Farmhouse Fixer”) were hired to renovate the kitchen rooms of their identical $1.9 million homes in Berthoud, Colorado.
SPOILER WARNING: This post contains spoilers for “Rock the Block” Season 4 Episode 1, “Kitchen Face-Off” (March 6, 2023). Don’t read any further if you don’t want this episode’s winner spoiled.
Bryan Baeumler missed the first design surprise
Rock the Block host Ty Pennington had the four teams meet for their first design surprise at sunrise on day four of the competition. Teams were asked to soar in hot air balloons to overlook the Colorado mountains and gather inspiration for their kitchen spaces.
However, before they took off, Ty noted that Sarah was all alone, and she explained that her husband “left on the most epic day, but he had to go back and do some work, so I’m flying solo.” Sarah didn’t reveal exactly what work Bryan had to do, but she was still able to get in the hot air balloon with Ty.
Bryan wasn’t the only competitor who opted out of the hot air balloon ride. Jonathan was quick to point out how terrified he was of heights, and Page followed suit, but joked: “I don’t have a problem with heights, but I have a doctor’s order that says I’m not allowed to go weaving baskets that involve the earth.” leave”, and let their teammates Kristina and Mitch drive together.
Bryan returned on day five, jealous that he had to miss the hot air balloon rides but excited to be back competing.
Dave & Jenny Marrs judge the kitchen face-off
HGTV stars Jenny and Dave Marrs returned to “Rock the Block” after competing in Season 3 to judge the kitchen room challenge (which they won in their season). The Marrses liked each of the four rooms completed, including the kitchen, dining room, toilet and pantry with an optional study and powder room.
Jenny and Dave felt that Michel and Anthony’s Modern Farmhouse kitchen was very elegant and luxurious, but that its design was a little less family-friendly than some of the others, which could limit the number of potential buyers. The judges liked the prep kitchen in Page and Mitch’s “Alpine Chic” home, but were hoping for more closet space. Bryan and Sarah’s open concept Aspen Chalet blew the judges away and set their home apart from the rest, but they felt the view into the dining room was blocked by their chandelier.
In the end, Jenny and Dave chose Jonathan and Kristina as the winning team for their Modern Farmhouse kitchen spaces. They loved how Jonathan and Kristina incorporated tree trunks into the ceiling of their powder room, inspired by Kristina’s hot air balloon ride, and loved the use of wooden beams and dark and light paint to separate the dining area from the kitchen. That means Jonathan and Kristina have an extra $1,000 left over for next week’s challenge: the Living Room Face-Off.
“Rock the Block” airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. Eastern on HGTV and Discovery+.
