Are you ready for the return of your daily dose of home renovation? Channel Nine’s popular series The Block is back on the small screen tonight, where eight couples will be facing off to see who will get the chance to renovate a house — yes, a whole house! To see who’s really got what it takes to fix up a run-down home, the 16 contestants will be put through a high-pressure 24-hour elimination challenge that will result in four couples going on to the home renovation stage. Once through, they’ll be placed in Richmond, Melbourne, where they’ll have eight weeks and $100,000 to renovate a house using their creativity, design and building skills. The commercial for the series is cute (it reminds me of the ads for My Kitchen Rules earlier this year) and the clever use of “7 o’Block” means I’ll never forget what time it’s on. Scott Cam returns as host and it kicks off with a one-hour episode. Will you watch The Block this year?
The Block commences at 7 p.m. on Channel Nine tonight.
