The Block’s angriest confrontation yet

THE Block's famously gruff building foreman Keith Schleiger met his match last night when he tried to give this season's most controversial couple, Jason and Sarah, a lecture about time management.

It's been two weeks since the pair received the lowest score in Block history - three zeros - and faced an unprecedented elimination from the competition for failing to complete a room in time to show the judges.

While they managed to claw their way back into the competition from that low, it seems they've yet to learn their lesson, spending yet another day on site doing very little in the way of renovating.

"This is my tenth Block. I've never seen a team, every Monday, do nothing. What is going on?" Keith asks the pair.

"You've only got five days to do a room, you have one day off ... It doesn't make sense. You guys having a crack, or are you here for a holiday?"

As Keith continues his lecture, Jason warns that he can "only tolerate so much."

"You want to slap my backside, Keith? You want to treat me like a child?" he shouts, bending over in the foreman's direction.

While Jason offers up excuses for their lack of progress ("We ran out of f**king paint at 3am"), Keith says he knows what the issue is: "I don't think you guys are having a crack. I don't think, I actually know."

Jason immediately sees red.

"You can believe whatever you want. You got a crystal ball, have ya? Don't f**king ever come in here and have a go at me and talk s**t to me again," he says, throwing a couple more f-bombs Keith's way.

Even Sarah warns her husband he's gone too far.

"Jesus Christ, Keith, I told you. Don't go pressing my buttons."

Sarah begs her husband to cool it, knowing that angering Keith will only come back to haunt them. In a to-camera interview, she says both she and Jason are exhausted.

"It's taking its toll on him, this is an exhausting experience. Keith can say what he wants but he's a foreman, he's not done T he Block. He gets to go home and have sleep at night; he's not living the experience we're living. It's exhausting," she says.

On social media, viewers appeared to share Keith's frustration with the couple's perceived lack of work ethic:
