I’m planning on watching The Block NZ, The Glee Project and the Olympics

The Block NZ (TV3, 7.30pm) looks like it’s going to be good tonight, judging by the promo. I’m looking forward to seeing what causes the normally level-headed Rachel to lose her temper with Mark, the host!

Besides temper tantrums, tonight’s episode will see the teams work on their kitchens and dining rooms. Pretty hard ask to do both of those in one week! The kitchen will be a very time-consuming room to do, I’d imagine. Plus, they head to the Hilton Hotel to undertake a gardening challenge.

I’m also looking forward to The Glee Project tonight (Four, 7.30pm), because Jane Lynch (who plays Sue Sylvester on Glee) will be the guest mentor this week! Continue reading »
