The Block – Starts Tonight On NINE – Here Is A Quick Ready Reckoner
The Block kicks off again tonight at 7.00pm on Channel NINE, and really there is nothing in its way at the moment to stop it from obtaining the ratings of last year.
Also it now has the Logie for best reality TV show of 2011 as well.
Here is a quick ready reckoner:
The series will start of the same as last year with eight couples being whittled down to four. Who will then settle into The Block.
Where is the Block: In South Melbourne and it is a set of four terraces.
- Sophie and Dale, Newlyweds.
- Brendan and Michelle, Youngest couple, married.
- Larry & Jessie, First father and daughter team.
- Brett & Rana, First mother and son team.
- Brad & Lara, Dating.
- Andrew & Mike, Brothers
- Brad & Courtney, Dating.
- Dan & Dani, boyfriend & girlfriend
The cast appears to be pretty anglo again this year. However that may be the issue that they are the only ones that are applying. Also there is the mother and son, and father/daughter combo for the first time this year.
John McGrath from McGrath Real Estate and Neale Whitaker from Belle Magazine will be joined by Shaynna Blaze this year. She will be a good addition to the show and will give a different perspective of the rooms.
Scott Cam and Shelly Craft will have the same roles as last year.
There is a red house which will be the battle ground for the couples to face off to try and get into the real block to be in the chance to win the prize.
Any money the get at the auction above the reserve price, plus if they are the team with the highest profit they will win an extra $100,000.
