In the show, hosted by Hamish Blake, eight pairs will undertake different Lego challenges to win the ultimate prize of $100,000. Their design and engineering skills will be tested, as well as their storytelling ability. The contestants will have 2.5 million Lego bricks at their fingertips.
Blake will be joined on Lego Masters by judge and resident Lego expert Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught. He is one of only 14 Lego-certified professional in the world and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere.
Michael Healy, director of television for Nine, said: “We are very excited about Lego Masters. It will redefine family entertainment in 2019 because there’s no greater brand that resonates more with families than Lego.”
Lego Masters comes from producers Endemol Shine Australia, who produced Australian Ninja Warrior, MasterChef and Married at First Sight. The show will premiere on Nine in 2019.
