Jimmy and Tam on a winning spree at Skygate Home & Life


Thursday 3 June 2021: Two Brisbane locals were the lucky winners of a money-can’t-buy experience, taking part in a $5,000 shopping and styling spree with The Block 2020 winners, Jimmy and Tam, at Skygate Home & Life last month.

The competition ran throughout the month of March and invited shoppers to enter the draw to win. Shoppers of the Skygate Home & Life precinct were able to submit additional entries if they uploaded their receipt numbers with their registration.

Jimmy and Tam, who became household names last year after notching up the most wins in The Block’s 17-year history, were on hand at Skygate Home & Life to help competition winners Jordyn and James spend their $5,000.

Jordyn, new mother of a 6-week-old boy, was delighted to receive the news as she was in the middle of home renovations after the arrival of her newborn.

“I couldn’t believe it at first, I thought it was a joke. My husband (James) and I were starting to look at renovating our nursery and dining room, so this came in at a perfect time,” Jordyn said.

Brisbane couple Jimmy and Tam were very happy to help Jordyn in her decision making, showcasing all the different styles and options available at the precinct.

“We’ve been busy filming our new show ‘Renovate or Rebuild’ for Channel 9 Life, but it was such a privilege to be able to help Jordyn and her family style their home during such an exciting time in their lives,” Tam said.

For Jimmy, the convenience and variety of retailers on offer at Skygate Home & Life made it a renovator’s delight.

“It’s incredible that you can just walk along and have all of these stores here in the same spot,” Jimmy said.

Skygate runs regular competitions to inspire shoppers at Brisbane Airport.
