Another week of Rock the Block is in the books, and finally, Renovation Island stars Sarah and Bryan Baeumler were crowned the winners! On the show’s fifth episode, Brian and Mika Kleinschmidt from 100 Day DreamHome judged the teams’ exterior spaces.

On previous episodes, Sarah and Bryan competed against Michel Smith Boyd and Anthony Elle from Luxe for Less; Jonathan Knight and Kristina Crestin from Farmhouse Fixer; and Page Turner and Mitch Glew from Fix My Flip. Teams have renovated the kitchen, living area, master suite and lower level. Much to the dismay of Renovation Island fans, Sarah and Bryan did not win any of those challenges.

Their time to shine came on episode 5. Teams had to update the home’s exterior spaces, and host Ty Pennington added an extra challenge: They had to include a sports element to the yard. Sarah and Bryan chose to add a parkour course because they knew it would appeal to their four kids. Brian said, “I feel like this exterior captured Colorado the best.” He and Mika complimented the materials, colors, outdoor kitchen, and fire pit.

Sarah shared some behind-the-scenes photos from the episode along with the caption, “We won our first challenge on #RocktheBlock! We stayed true to what we set out to accomplish, and we are so proud of how everything came together. We wanted to showcase the breathtaking views of Colorado by creating exterior living spaces that are perfect for entertaining and also practical for a cozy night at home with the family.”

Fans flooded the comments section with excited messages for Sarah and Bryan.

  • “Finally … Judges that recognize classic, timeless and creative design!!! Should have been your third win!!! ❤️?”
  • “Finally a win! And it was WELL DESERVED. You folks did a beautiful job, absolutely gorgeous ❤️”
  • “Yay! It’s about time! Your house Rocked the Block for every challenge! Way to go guys!”
  • “You and Bryan nailed it! Curb appeal is totally Colorado style! ❤️?”
  • “AWESOME!!! LOVED IT, you should have won others too, just saying??‍♀️”

We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but there’s only one episode of Rock the Block left! The finale airs on April 10. Previous Rock the Block winners Jasmine Roth, Egypt Sherrod, and Mike Jackson have the tall task of choosing a winner.
