Not long after Saturday night’s auction a private sale was liaised for Katrina & Amie of $860,000 -their reserve price. That means the sisters will leave with no cash from the Auction episode, but they were paid a base salary for their time on the show.

All that work and heartache put into renovating and they come away with minimal to show. Amie and Katrina could barely hide their disappointment, with Amie stating “A waste of time, really, isn’t it….?” When you’ve been separated from partners and kids, it must be doubly crushing.

Tv tonight notes that last year couples profited between $47,000 and $105,000 (rising to $205,000 with the extra prize money).

Polly & Waz- Winners

Amie and Katrina - House sold with no Profit 

I wonder how many people would be sending in their applications to be on The Block 2012 now? They should have all received some type of a "retainer" prize money other than a "wage"?  

PS: What happened to the Elderly couple and the Couple in the hot pink Attire at Josh & Jenna's Auction? Up to 1.1Million Hey?
