The second 2014 season, The Block: The Glasshouse is currently filming in Prahran, but if you want to try your reno luck for 2015 here’s what Nine is pitching:
Think you’ve got what it takes to turn rooms with no walls into stunning spaces people would pay millions for?
Do your friends keep saying, “You guys would be great on The Block?”
Do you sit at home on your couch and think, “I could do better than that?”
If you’ve spent nights watching The Block thinking you could plaster a master bedroom like a pro or style a study that would blow the judges away, well here’s your chance to prove it.
Applications for the next season of The Block are now open and we want to hear from you.
We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated, hardworking teams of two to participate in Australia’s biggest renovating challenge. So grab your mother, your brother, your partner or your best friend and apply online at www.theblock.com.au
The website indicates the following criteria:
Couples must be aged between 18-65, energetic and with a sense of humour.
First round couples will be reduced to final participants in the first week of filming.
Successful couples must be available for a 10-12 week shoot period in late 2014. Exact dates to be confirmed closer to filming.
Location of The Block is to be confirmed.
