Tonight | The Block on Channel 9 and 9Now

The Block on Channel 9 – It’s week three on The Block and our Blockheads are building a guest bathroom in the main part of the house. 

Leah’s issues with the judges’ feedback  continues, she is not happy that she came equal last with Eliza and Liberty for last week’s studio.  Leah isn’t happy with Steph and Gian’s win last week, calling their beige style ‘7 shades of Arrowroot biscuit.’

At the end of the Domain Open For Inspections after checking all the houses out, Leah is absolutely furious and thinks she and Ash are being unfairly judged. 

Our Blockheads all get into the planning stage of their bathrooms with some surprises. 

Kyle and Leslie take the shower out of their room and will deliver the smallest room on The Block, a beautiful, but small, powder room.

Eliza and Liberty will also do a first for The Block – the very first moss feature wall that is set to divide.

Leah and Ash are on the war parth and have a huge fight with Nine In Six, who are Scotty’s builders on The Block.  She felt they didn’t do enough on the weekend to protect their work from home space which was destroyed by rain. 

The fight gets very emotional and heated, as Aidan and Simmo from Nine In Six explain the situation. 

At the end of the day Ash attempts to bury the hatchet with a bottle of scotch for Aidan and Simmo, but will it be enough? 

Our Blockheads are given a breakdancing challenge, where they have to learn a break dancing routine in a week with a special performance later in the week at Scotty’s HQ. 

About The Block

Get ready, Australia. The Block, the number one renovation reality program, returns for an incredible 19th season on Sunday, August 6, at 7.00pm on Channel 9 and 9Now. 

Set in the family-friendly Melbourne suburb of Hampton East, the new series features five houses designed and built in the 1950s and located on the aptly named Charming Street. These grand old dames are now aged in their 70s and way overdue for a contemporary update. 

For the first time in Block history, host Scott Cam will be providing contestants with the full renovation schedule ahead of time this season. So get your cameras out, Blockheads, it’s photo time. 

Adding to the year of Block firsts and amping up the stakes at play during the 48-hour House Decider Challenge, contestants will be seeing all finished designs of the houses on Day 1. Who will prevail and get the house of their choice?

Not only will they get the schedule and designs up front, but in another first, they’ll receive their entire budgets as well. 

However, the Blockheads will soon find out that it’s not all smooth sailing when renovating an original 1950s home – structural issues, extreme weather events, and a mountain of demolition will test our five keen couples every step of the way. 

Plus, The Block’s state-versus-state rivalry will be amplified by the sheer closeness of the houses this year. Who knew being able to peak into your neighbours builds would cause such tension?

The couples in contention are: sisters Eliza and Liberty Paschke (personal assistant, 37, and integration producer, 34, VIC); parents Kyle and Leslie Cottone (firefighter, 36, and teaching aide, 34, WA); parents Leah and Ash Milton (first aid officer, 31, and builder, 36, QLD); married couple Kristy and Brett Beames (project manager, 34, and safety officer, 34, SA); and newlyweds Steph and Gian Ottavio (architect, 27, and start up worker, 27, NSW).

Real estate expert Marty Fox isn’t the only new addition to the lineup this season. The formidable foremen Keith Schleiger and Dan Reilly will be joined on site with the fan favourite from last year, Tom Calleja.   

The nation fell in love with Tom and his wife Sarah-Jane because of their work ethic and relatable marital bickering, and he jumped at the chance to work with Scotty and come back as this year’s official Block plumber. 
The designs of the amazing homes in this series again come from The Block’s resident architect, Julian Brenchley.

At stake is $100,000 for the overall winner of The Block, on top of any profit the five couples can all make on the critical auction day. Plus bragging rights for the winners’ state. 

Since premiering on Channel 9 in 2003, Australia’s richest reality program has awarded a total of $32,592,807.65 in prizemoney.

The Block – Monday 28 August, 2023 at 7.30pm on Channel 9 and 9Now
