The couple, who shocked audiences when they won the first challenge of the year and opted to renovate Apartment 3 in the old Gatwick instead of building a new luxurious penthouse, provided plenty of colour this season thanks to their frequent clashes with each other - and other contestants.

There were a few meltdowns.

At one point, Sara even tried to quit the show, screaming at a producer after finding out her and Hayden had placed last in Bathroom Week.

"Again, last? Even after everything, last. You've got to be kidding me. This is f**ked. It's f**ked, it's f**king embarrassing now," she yelled, all the while panting heavily.

But in the end, it was worth her sticking around. During Sunday night's nailbiting finale, Hayden and Sara's apartment sold for $3.02 million dollars - $545,000 over the reserve price - making them the winners of The Block for 2018.

And a lot of viewers weren't happy.
