The Block NZ teams talk regrets and partner-swapping over a game of Twister

We all know how much the contestants of The Block NZ love a bit of organised fun - they've done Sudoku puzzles on a toilet, raced DIY rafts and painted pictures with their butts.

During a fateful game of Twister, Em said she'd take "any excuse to get her hands on those boys", so it seemed the obvious platform on which to ask the teams some uncomfortable questions.

In a tangle of limbs and primary colours, the teams quickly get cosy, quelling any rumours of hard feelings with some hand-on-hand action.

One adorable moment sees Agni cling to Amy's waist - a bit like a baby Koala - despite their many fiery clashes throughout the show.

Ben's not adverse to partner-swapping, as it turns out; but his choice of Amy as ideal teammate surprises us all - especially Em, who appears to shoot him a quizzical look.

Later, he'll accuse her of "pulling him down" on the Twister mat, and the flirtation level between the pair will return to normal.

Em then picks Stu as her hypothetical new partner, because of his "mean painting" skills.

Amy wants everyone to be clear the question refers to swapping teammates, not mates for life.

We swiftly move on.

When it comes to bad mistakes - in the words of Freddie Mercury - they've had a few.

In fact, when asked if he regrets anything he's said on the show, that's all that Agni will admit: "Yeah, a few things," in a spectacularly shifty fashion.

Amy reckons she "doesn't really remember" anything she'd take back, but Em doesn't hesitate when recalling her biggest Block embarrassment.

"When we blocked our pipes, and they were full of poo," she says.

"Our plumber had to cut them, and our poo was splattering all over his face, and we just had to stand there and watch."

Quite the visceral memory.

At a certain point, it becomes clear to me I've made a real oversight in orchestrating this game: not inviting Mark Richardson.

"He's a silver fox, to the max!" Em says, before adding "sexy!" to Claire's description of The Block host as "lovely and friendly".

Amy thinks he's "misrepresented".

And just when I'm about to put in a call to Mark, Amy and Stu win the game, as usual - yet another victory notch in their The Block NZ belt.

The Block NZ airs on Three Sundays at 7pm and Monday-Wednesday at 7:30pm. It can also be viewed on ThreeNow
