The Real Pod: Mercury is in retrograde, just ask The Block NZ

The Real Pod assembles to dissect the week in reality television and real life, with special thanks to Nando’s.

It’s a wacky, wacky week on The Real Pod this week. But is it wackier than the fact that Gilda Kirkpatrick saw a literal ghost in Jamaica? Wackier than the fact that Hilary Barry visited The Spinoff studios? Wackier than Nasser returning to Alex’s DMs after weeks of silence? Is it Mercury’s fault? Can it be saved by an ice cold taurine fizz? How about a square morsel of cheesy bread from Nando’s?

There’s also the wild west of Dinner Wars on The Block NZ. Stacy and Adam mispronounced many Mexican words during their fiesta, Ribz potentially exposed himself on national television while doing a toilet joke, and Ethan and Sam sampled their very first cup of piping hot Auckland java. And who can forget James Reid of course? It’s The Real Pod: really.
