Nine has announced the 8 teams from The Block & House Rules who will compete on Reno Rumble, a revived format expected to air after Easter.
Appearing from The Block are:
Josh (29) and Jenna (27), VIC – power couple from The Block 2011 and The Block: All Stars in 2013
Kyal (29) and Kara (27), NSW – the Super K’s from The Block: Fans v Faves in 2014
Michael (32) and Carlene (32), QLD – audience favourites from The Block Glasshouse in 2014
Ayden (31) and Jess (32), QLD – currently starring in The Block Triple Threat
Former contestants on House Rules are:
Carly (33) and Leighton (34), NSW – winners of House Rules season one in 2013
Michelle (50) and Steve (50), NSW – runners-up of House Rules season one in 2013
Nick (21) and Chris (26), VIC – brothers from House Rules season one in 2013
Jemma (28) and Ben (29), WA – newlyweds from House Rules season one in 2013
Scott Cam will host the series in which contestants renovate two suburban houses, with one team eliminated each week.
The homeowners are everyday Aussies who will have their dreams turned into reality as our superstar renovators transform their ordinary houses into stunning homes.
Who will reign supreme to collect the $100,000 winner’s cheque, with half going to the winning couple’s favourite charity?
Each home will be judged by interior design experts who have been briefed by the home owners on the style they want for their renovation.
Judging will be done ‘blind’ with judges not knowing who the teams are or which rooms they have renovated. A Reno Rumble base has also been fitted at Avalon airport. Teams also live in caravans around Melbourne during the production shoot, while the series has blue and red “cheerleader” visuals.
While The Block has under-performed this season, Seven is also set to launch a third season of House Rules following My Kitchen Rules.
Nine previously screened Renovation Rumble pitting contestants against designers from Changing Rooms and Location Location in 2003.
