Joining host Johanna Griggs are two judges, architect Joe Snell and Home Beautiful editor Wendy Moore.

Wendy Moore (Judge): Wendy has worked in magazines for more than 20 years and is one of the foremost experts on style and design as the editor of Home Beautiful.

Carolyn Burns-McCrave (Designer): Carolyn has spent the last 15 years working as an interior designer and runs her own successful interior design business.

Chester Drife (Build Supervisor): Chester has been a carpenter for nearly two decades and runs his own carpentry and construction business.


  1. @ Kirk: Yes
    @ Mr J: networks are still scared of promoting homosexuals, don’t recall the Amazing Race Australia having a gay couple, the Block has only had one! The pink $ as it is referred to, mustn’t make much impact even though the disposable income is much higher for those without children and receives less government subsidy.
    Just saying.

  2. Does anyone know if that male-male team in the promos is a gay couple? The snippets for every other team has ‘engaged’, ‘friends’ ect. But they don’t get a clip like that.

  3. What do Chester Drife, Tom Williams and Jake Wall have in common that would be sought after by this show? That’s right. Building credentials.
