The Block Australia

7:30pm – Monday, October 22 on TV 3

After the phenomenal success of The Block NZ, this week 3 brings fans The Block Australia, premiering on Monday, October 22 nd at 7:30pm and screening three days a week – Monday to Wednesday – at 7:30pm on 3.

Hosted by Scott Cam and Shelley Craft, with judges Neale Whitaker, John McGrath and Shaynna Blaze, The Block Australia begins with eight determined couples competing in a tense 24-hour, do-or-die Elimination Challenge to see who makes it through to the major thrill ride – the full property renovation.

With little more than what they’re wearing, the final four couples will then be taken out of their comfort zones and dropped into a frantic 10-week contest to renovate equally dilapidated terrace houses in inner-city South Melbourne.

With no running water and dirt floors in the rundown terraces, this challenge is definitely not for the faint-hearted. Couples must first contend with the twin pressures of little money and very little time, then compete against each other in a series of challenges, all while delivering a renovated room every week.

Following on from The Block NZ’s format, equal budgets – AUD 125,000 – will be given to all four final couples – then they’re on their own.

In the tradition of The Block, each couple will get to keep the profit from the auction of their property. And after the last auctioneer’s gavel goes down, the couple whose property makes the most over reserve wins an additional AUD 100,000.

So which of the eight couples will have the creativity, design, planning, budgeting, execution and selling skills to make it to the final four? Find out when The Block Australia premieres on Monday, October 22nd at 7:30pm on 3.
