The Block NZ 2012
Teenage sweethearts, Ginny Death (22) and Rhys Wineera (23) have been together for six years and live together in a rented cottage by the beach in New Plymouth.
Ginny is an intensive care nurse, and Rhys, of Ngāti Ruanui and Ngati Toa decent, is an electrical linesman. An energetic and social young couple with a large group of friends, they dream of owning their first home by the end of this year. Rhys loves a practical joke and is a big rugby fan; he played competitively for Taranaki until a back injury ruled him out. In her spare time, Ginny likes collecting art and shopping, and says it’s hard for her to resist a pretty dress. “I’ve got some crazy dresses, but you have to spoil yourself every now and then.” Their jobs often entail shift work, so this couple ensures they make time to be together.
Ginny and Rhys think they have the know-how to handle any surprises The Block NZ throws their way and believe their experience in high pressure jobs has taught them to take a step back, take their time and do things properly.
