The high-profile real estate agent selling Jimmy and Tam’s $4.2million home on The Block has admitted that he ‘wouldn’t be surprised’ if host Scott Cam bought the luxurious property. 

McGrath St Kilda principal Michael Townsend told The Herald Sun on Tuesday that he ‘knows nothing’ about all the rumours, but said it could be possible because of Scott’s close involvement in the show. 

New Idea claimed on Monday that the renovation show host had saved the day by secretly purchasing the Melbourne mansion for himself, after cyber security expert Emese Fajk failed to pay up. 

What do YOU think? The Block mystery deepens as real estate agent tasked with selling Jimmy and Tam’s $4.2million home says he ‘wouldn’t be surprised’ if host Scott Cam quietly bought the property

‘Scott’s involved in the show, so there would be no need for a real estate agent to transact (the property). If he has bought it, it wouldn’t surprise me,’ Mr Townsend told the publication.

‘But I don’t know anything about it.’

Mr Townsend added that he has been waking buyers through the property via inspections as recently as ‘last week.’

However, on Tuesday, insiders dashed hopes that Scott Cam swooped in to buy Jimmy and Tam’s home on The Block, after cyber security expert Emese Fajk failed to pay up.

New Idea claimed on Monday that the renovation show host had saved the day by secretly purchasing the $4.2million mansion for himself.

But sources dismissed the magazine’s claims as rubbish. ‘There is absolutely no way Scott Cam bought the house,’ one insider said.

The Palm Springs-style property in Melbourne’s affluent Brighton area remains on the market more than a month on, although it isn’t publicly listed. 

Mysterious cyber-security expert Emese Fajk – who claims to have worked with Apple and the United Nations – bought the home at auction for a show record of $4,256,000.

But just days before Christmas, both the 28-year-old’s settlement and deposit payments failed to go through. That’s despite Ms Fajk sending ANZ Bank screenshots to Nine producers as ‘proof’ of her purchase.

Jimmy and Tam were left in the unenviable position of having to find a buyer for a prestige home right as the summer holiday period began, a slow period for the real estate market.

A Nine Network spokesman declined to address the false rumour Cam had came to the couple’s rescue. ‘Scott and Nine will not be commenting on this.’

The iconic tradesman – the face of the show for more than a decade – has form, having previously purchased property renovated by contestants. 

The failed sale of Jimmy and Tam’s home has devastated the Queensland couple who even watched the finale over celebratory drinks with Ms Fajk.

The renovators choked back tears as they told A Current Affair how they’d been left blindsided by the strange turn of events.

‘Here we are now not knowing what’s going to happen,’ Jimmy said.

‘It’s something no one ever saw coming, no one ever expected, but it’s something we now have to deal with.’

Ms Fajk’s contract is now void. Her funds never reached Nine’s bank account.

She has blamed an unnamed conveyancer, claiming she was ‘thrown under the bus’.

‘I didn’t get forms in time that I needed to sign,’ she claimed.

‘I had to find crucial information on my own, even though I paid someone else to make sure there are no hiccups.’ 

'It's something no one ever saw coming, no one ever expected, but it's something we now have to deal with,' Jimmy said

Ms Fajk has rejected claims she sent doctored screenshots of bank transfers to an ex-boyfriend in the past.

She did not directly respond to questions about separate allegations she sent fake screenshots to a former classmate.

‘I’m more then happy to sit down with anyone who would be interested and refute any of the allegations and claims against me,’ she said.

Ms Fajk narrowly outbid Melbourne IT entrepreneur Danny Wallis to win the property. But Mr Wallis, who bought three homes at this year’s auctions, has kept mum about his thoughts since the purchase failed.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Nine for comment, in relation to this story. 

Keeping mum: Earlier this week, A Nine Network spokesman declined to address the false rumour Cam had came to the couple's rescue. 'Scott and Nine will not be commenting on this'
