It might seem trivial but you might want to get their name right. ;-)

Did you mean that the seat is unavailable to book?

I would assume that someone else has already booked it and so I doubt it would become available unless that person changed their seat preference.

We flew Qantas to Sydney a couple of years ago, up to 24 hours before flight you had to pay extra to book seats. I just waited until the 24 hour window opened and got the seats we wanted for "free"

How do you know someone else hasn't paid to prebook this seat?

Out of 484 seats there's only one you want?

I'm not sure how anyone here would know exactly why the unknown seat is blocked or whether it will somehow become available. I presume you have paid for pre-selection and this one seat is already taken ... all you can do is hope for the best.

You need to pay $25 to book a seat. If you have not done that, then you cannot select anyway.

If you have paid the $25 and the seat is not available, then there are 2 possibilities. Firstly, it is already booked and will not become available.

Secondly, yes Qantas do block groups of seats until check in. One way to get it is to ring the call centre and try your luck that way, otherwise, be quick at the 24hr mark for online check in.

I'm with able. There's only one seat you're after? I wouldn't be holding my breath, and maybe have an alternative selection in mind also.

And did Engelbert Humperdinck start an airline?

Perhaps the seat is only available to passengers with higher status with Qanas?
