After $18m in total prize winnings, Nine reveals The Block 2018 launch

Five ambitious couples will tackle the biggest construction in Block history.

Meanwhile Nine has announced five ambitious couples will tackle the biggest construction in Block history when the 2018 series launches on Sunday August 5 at 7pm.

Over 11 weeks, and with a budget of $220,000, the new Blockheads will totally transform five luxury apartment spaces in the notorious Gatwick building located in beachside St Kilda in Melbourne.

They’re all competing for the chance to walk away with $100,000 prize money and any profit made when their apartments go under the hammer at a live public auction later this year.

Block host Scott Cam will be joined again by his co-host Shelley Craft, along with judges Neale Whitaker, Shaynna Blaze and Darren Palmer, “The Blockinator”, foreman Keith Schleiger, and his right-hand man, Dan Reilly.

In July 2018, The Block proved its popularity with Australian viewers by winning its sixth TV Week Logie Award for Best Reality Program. The Block has distributed an astronomical cash total of $18,895,501 to contestants since premiering on Channel Nine in 2003.
