Tonight | The Block on Channel 9 and 9Now

The Block on Channel 9 – A dramatic body corporate rocks The Block, after simmering tensions explode between Ash in House No.2 and Kristy in House No.3.

The body corporate is called by Leslie to discuss Brett’s plan to flip House No.3’s  front yard and backyard for judging, all because he wants to present his pool in the final week.

It soon becomes clear that isn’t going to pass the body corporate, and it’s then the slanging match between Kristy and Ash begins.

Ash’s issue is that Kristy has been flat out ignoring him and Leah, he wants the relationship to be civil leading into the final two weeks of The Block.

It gets super heated between the two, insults fly between the two as the other Blockheads look on awkwardly.

During the argument, Leah finds out that Kristy and Brett have asked their tilers to do their waterproofing and Leah isn’t having any of it. She gives the tilers an ultimatum, if you work with Kristy and Brett, their working relationship is over.

In the end the other Blockheads leave and Kristy and Ash kind of sort things out, but Leah isn’t having any of it. She is disgusted at Kristy for talking trash to her husband.

Meanwhile there is some renovation going on, our Blockheads are continuing to build their bathrooms and re do rooms. 

They get a challenge call from Arnotts biscuits. The challenge is called It’s A Blockout. They meet Leila McKinnon the host of Aussie Ninja Warrior at a winery and get told about an obstacle challenge they have to complete for $10,000.

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 on Channel 9 and 9Now – Thursday 12 October, 2023 at 7.30pm.
