They were advised against installing a vertical garden during the planning process.
And The Block stars Sara and Hayden Vale’s controversial choice to go ahead with it came back to bite them as they unveiled their finished bathroom on Sunday evening.
Despite oozing confidence ahead of the judges arrival, their ‘overwhelming and ugly’ efforts were quickly savaged, prompting Sara to hit back with some strong words.
‘Are you f**king serious?’: The Block’s villain Sara and husband Hayden vented at judges as their ‘ugly’ bathroom was savaged after controversial vertical garden choice
Judges Neale Whitaker, Shaynna Blaze and Darren Palmer were each thoroughly disappointed as they inspected the space.
Leading the brutal remarks, Neale said: ‘I feel like this bathroom is not big enough.’
Speaking of the vertical garden directly, he added: ‘This thing behind me feels like two other people and I’m completely overwhelmed by it.’
‘It feels so over the top and it’s just an ugly choice – It just doesn’t feel refined. It’s not high-end and I also find it quite dated.

‘I was expecting great things and I am disappointed,’ Neal concluded.
Shaynna was equally as brutal, adding: ‘It’s very weak styling.’
‘It’s just shove, shove, shove, bang.’
Although Darren added a slight compliment, saying the tiles ‘worked really nicely,’ his overall impression wasn’t particularly positive and expressed his confusion at who the potential buyer would be.

As Sara rolled her eyes, Hayden offered: ‘We definitely weren’t expecting that, we worked really hard. We took a risk and we thought that was worth taking.’
The brunette then added: ‘It’s an art decor building and you have to pay some homage to that.’
However, she wasn’t quite so composed as the judges scores were totalled up.

‘Are you f***ing serious?’ she vented to partner Hayden in response to the numbers.
Hayden later responded: ‘I thought we might have at least been in the middle.’

Last week, fans of home renovation series The Block labelled contestant Sara a drama queen.
One viewer in particular hoped that the 31-year-old would be ‘served a nice plate of accountability’ after getting into a fiery confrontation with foreman Dan Reilly.
