Returning this season with a twist, The Block Fans v Faves brings three unsuspecting, yet hopeful, couples face to face with two sets of very experienced returning all-stars in a setting never attempted before – a traditional Australian cul-de-sac, in the Melbourne bayside suburb of Hampton.
In another big Block shakeup, for the first time there will be no house plans for contestants to work off – we’re tearing them up. This year, Blockheads must not only renovate the mammoth project, they’ll also have to design the layout and inclusions of their houses themselves from scratch.
For the uninitiated, at stake is $100,000 for the winner of The Block, plus whatever profits their home can make on the critical auction day. All that’s standing in the way is five dilapidated houses and three fierce judges who will score the room reveals as they’re delivered each week.
