Nine yesterday revealed Australia’s longest-running reality program, The Block, returns for its 11th series Sunday, September 6 at 7.00pm.
Five new teams, from all walks of life, will leave their old lives behind in their quest to build the great Australian dream.
The latest series will take a back-to-basics approach as the new contestants, with limited renovating experience, set out to transform an octagonal-shaped former motel into a luxurious, state-of-the-art apartment complex.
They will be set the challenge of turning each level of the building into one 225 square metre apartment, with all levels boasting 360-degree vistas of Melbourne.
Teams will be tasked with creating their own three-bedroom, four-bathroom apartment, each with an expansive outdoor terrace, taking in sweeping city views.
The series will kick off with a 24-hour challenge, the winner of which will be rewarded with first pick of what level they wish to renovate.
Scott Cam will again be hosting this season and has already christened the series: “I’ve nicknamed it the Blocktagon”.
