‘Renovation Island’ Bombard Fans Sarah Baeumler After ‘Rock the Block’ Episode

They’re a long way from Caerula Mar!

Sarah and Bryan Baeumler are back on HGTV, but they’ve traded the beaches of the Bahamas for the Colorado mountains. the Renovation Island power couple has joined the cast of Rock the Block for its fourth season, and the show is off to an exciting start.

Sarah and Bryan are competing against fellow HGTV stars Michel Smith Boyd and Anthony Elle from Luxe for Less, Jonathan Knight and Kristina Crestin from Farmhouse Fixers, and Page Turner and Mitch Glew from Fix My Flip. Each couple has six weeks and a budget of $250,000 to renovate one of four identical 5,000-square-foot properties.

Fixer to Fabulous stars Dave and Jenny Marrs, who competed on season 3 of the show, judged the first episode. The teams were tasked with renovating the kitchen, dining room, and pantry of their home. Dave and Jenny (who will join Erin and Ben Napier on season 2 of HomeTown: Takeover) ultimately chose Jonathan Knight and Kristina Crestin from Farmhouse Fixer as the winners.

Jenny wrote about the difficult decision on Instagram. She said, “The four homes were all exquisite and it felt impossible to pick a winner! I honestly thought it was as stressful to be a judge as it was to be a competitor last year because we KNEW how hard each team had worked. We knew they had poured so much time and energy and love into these homes and we hated to only pick one winner. It was a VERY tough decision.”

Sarah shared a preview of the episode with her fans on Instagram. Fans jumped to the comments section to leave their thoughts about their renovation, and many felt like Sarah and Bryan should’ve won the challenge. They left messages like, “Loved your kitchen!! Can’t wait for next week🏡,” “So excited ! You guys are going to kill this competition,” and “Almost no words for your magnificent kitchen vision😍 Taking down those walls and making that cozy eating area, the double islands and stone, just spectacularly elegant and functional and gorgeous🔥.”

Up next, the teams will renovate the living rooms and entryways, and their work will be judged by Mina Starsiak-Hawk of Good Bones and Jenn Todryk of No Demo Reno.
