After years of alleged feuding, The Block’s Shaynna Blaze has finally broken her silence on the long-running and much-discussed row with host Scott Cam.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday at Channel Nine’s 2024 pre-shows, the 60-year-old interior designer denied there had been any ongoing disputes between the two.
“Oh god, no, there’s nothing going on between me and Scotty,” she explained.
“There’s no bad blood.” People just make things up. It happens every year…’
When asked what she thought of Scott’s subtly attacking her in a recent radio interview, Shaynna explained that it was “all a little bit of fun.”

She hinted that these minor frictions might just be a tactic to keep audiences engaged and boost ratings.
Shaynna also addressed the brewing tension and drama that was unfolding among the show’s contestants.
Expressing her experienced perspective, she said, “They’re all tested, they’re exhausted.”

“I think it’s one of those things that if there’s no drama, they obviously aren’t trying hard enough.”
It comes amid reports that Shaynna is at her wit’s end with Scott’s unnecessary remarks.
“He turns the set into a pressure cooker, which makes things a lot harder than they need to be,” a source told Daily Mail Australia last month.
“Oh god, no, there’s nothing going on between me and Scotty,” she explained. “There’s no bad blood.” People just make things up. It happens every year…’
“She’s really sick of his pointless comments. They all have a job to do, and those comments only make things more awkward and tense than they need to be.”
Scotty berated Shaynna as “ab***h” on national television in 2017 after feeling “unfairly judged.”
After the incident, fans urged Scott to apologize for the awkward comment.
“@ScottyCam9 there is no justification for tagging @ShaynnaBlaze in this way.” It’s high time for a genuine apology. #theblock #familyshow,” tweeted one angry fan.
Additionally, it was not unnoticed that Scott singled out Shaynna with the derogatory term and ignored the male judges.
One viewer pointed out, “Using @ShaynnaBlaze to feature that term on prime time TV is regressive and downright disrespectful.”
“Shaynna is done with Scott’s needless comments.” He turns the set into a pressure cooker, making things a lot more tiring than they need to be.
As Scott and Shaynna’s feud draws attention, another twist comes from Shelley Craft, who didn’t hold back in a recent promotional interview.
She avoided direct mentions but left little to the imagination, hinting at last year’s contestants Sharon and Ankur, calling their participation “an absolute disaster” and calling them the “worst team”.
Shelley also spoke about the cast, stressing that they rely more on “characters” than actual construction know-how.
