The Block on Channel 9 – It’s the second last week of The Block and it’s a big week, backyard landscaping and pool week. 

The Blockheads are looking forward to finishing and are getting nostalgic for the journey they have had. 

At the Domain Open For Inspections the contestants can’t understand how Kristy and Brett just gave up delivering their bathroom redo room, so close to the end of the build.

Drama  is brewing in House No.1 for Kyle and Leslie, who to this point have managed to stay out of any confrontation.

Kyle and Leslie have secured Troy Lovett as their landscaper, who famously won the week with Tom and Sarah Jane in Gisborne. 

As Troy arrives on site he does so with an army of workers and expensive products, which leads the other Blockheads to question how they can afford it? 

Leslie told Leah that she only has $40,000 for the two weeks of landscaping, and she and Ash are leading the discussion about how they are affording it.

Kyle and Leslie say they negotiated a deal with Troy for a $40,000 quote and everything is above board.

Leah is excited when Steph offers her $5,500 Camerich Block bucks and she heads to the Melbourne furniture store and finds some amazing furniture for her backyard.

She wants over $15,000 worth of product and she calls Steph and asks for more Block bucks, but Steph says she doesn’t want to have this conversation and says no.

Compared to Kyle and Leslie’s army of workers, Eliza and Liberty only have two young landscapers but they are working with it.  The girls have an amazing getaway in the City with Scotty for winning last night with their bathroom. 

Leah’s suspicion that Kyle and Leslie aren’t playing fair with their budget continues to fuel.

Meanwhile Kristy and Brett in House No.3 are really struggling to work with their landscaper.

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 – Monday 16 October, 2023 at 7.30pm.
