For eight weeks the couples must live in The Block with around-the clock camera crews filming everything they do. They must maintain their everyday jobs and careers and complete the renovation work before work, after work and on the weekend. This year’s series is set in Vaucluse, one of Australia’s most exclusive suburbs and a real estate goldmine.
