Guest judge Bec Judd savaged by viewers

 

A short, uncontroversial appearance on Nine's reno show The Block was all it took for Bec Judd's name to trend on Twitter across Australia on Wednesday night.

Thankfully Judd herself favours Instagram, because the feedback on Twitter was overwhelmingly negative.

Judd had appeared on The Block as a guest judge for a challenge, giving her feedback as The Block teams styled a vacant Brighton apartment for sale. There were no tensions or mishaps from Judd's judging - but viewers had a visceral reaction given the controversial few months Judd has had.

It's unclear how recently Wednesday's episode of The Block was filmed, but it comes after the model, Instagram influencer and wife to ex-AFL star Chris Judd weathered several recent social media controversies regarding Melbourne's coronavirus lockdown.

In September she slammed Victorian Premier "Dictator Dan" Andrews over the stage four lockdown keeping her cooped up in her opulent $7.3 million Brighton mansion.

" … It seems Dictator Dan will be locking Victorians in our homes even longer," she captioned one of her many Instagram sponsored posts, this one spruiking a children's cubby house company.

The mum-of-four, 37, swiftly removed the post, but it was quick to attract criticism from Melburnians who called her "tone deaf" for complaining despite her ultra-luxurious lifestyle.

And last week she was labelled "insensitive" after sporting a "Free Melbourne" T-shirt in a series of posts on her Instagram stories.

Come Wednesday night, and it seems Block viewers were eager to vent as Judd appeared on screen:

 

 

 

As Judd's name trended on Twitter, others who weren't even watching The Block joined the pile-on to ask what she'd done now - unaware that it was all sparked by a quick reality show appearance:

 

The Block continues 7pm Sunday on Nine.
