Olivia O'Brien.

He’s faced off against fellow Blockheads Luke, Josh, Tanya and Vito – now Mitch Edwards has sparked a fresh feud with The Block Australia judge Shaynna Blaze, accusing her and her fellow judges of belittling the contestants.

“Shaynna has a wicked tongue,” Mitch, 58, tells Woman’s Day. “She continues through the whole season. It doesn’t sit well when you’re willing to make nasty, hurtful comments that seem to be for your own self-elevation.”
