Everything you need to know about LEGO Masters: Australia vs The World

LEGO Masters

This is Nine’s sixth season of LEGO Masters.

LEGO Masters Australia is back for its sixth season on Nine and with it comes a world-first global showdown.

In the same year as the Olympics, it’s “Australia vs The World” at LEGO Masters with four brand-new teams from Australia taking on four international LEGO counterparts from Denmark, Germany, France and the USA.

Gold Logie winner Hamish Blake is returning to host, alongside judge Ryan “Brickman” McNaught. Special guest Sophie Monk joins the duo for what will be the most demanding challenges the show has seen so far.

The international teams have competed in their own local LEGO Masters competition before, but now they’re up against four Australian teams who comprise of the best new builders in the country, including a LEGO store manager, a LEGO art designer and an official LEGO master builder. 

The Aussie teams are coming into this season with a home-ground advantage, along with knowing exactly what’s required in a LEGO Masters Australia competition. 

This season will see special guest appearances from Australia radio presenter and comedian Michael “Wippa” Wipfil and Jordy Hocking from LEGO Masters Season 1. The challenges this year have been teased to be more demanding than ever. They include LEGO go-kart racing, a window display challenge, and celebrating 85 years of Batman.

At an on-set visit in 2023, host Hamish Blake and judge Brickman said having teams from Denmark, France and the USA is “exciting”, however, nothing prepared them for German duo, Felix and Annalena. 

“The German team might be some of our favourite contestants of all time,” Hamish told Chattr. “They won the German version and they are like pro athletes!”

Adding that after five years of purely Aussie talent, the “newness of having these international teams” is fascinating, because they have “different ways of doing things”.

“The personalities are so different and we have so much fun with the other languages,” Brickman, who was also sitting in on the same interview, said. “It really is fun and interesting because as soon as it gets tense, the teams will default back to their natural language and everyone just starts speaking either Danish, German or French!”

“They have different quirks in communication and culture,” Hamish added, before referencing the German duo once again.

“They are absolute fiends for just diverting to German. You think of Endemol Shine just spending a fortune on translating because we get to see a live brainstorm in German!”

LEGO Masters premieres on Sunday, 14 April at 7:00 pm on Channel Nine and 9Now.
