Three’s The Block NZ On Point

04 Jul 2018

Block-a-holics rejoice! Three’s The Block NZ, one of New Zealand’s favourite reality TV shows, is back with a brand new season and this time its headed out west – with teams competing in Hobsonville Point, Auckland, to design and complete a family home.

The show will start screening this Sunday on Three and will show four teams take on the 12-week reno challenge, each renovating a three-storey home.

The winners of The Block NZ 2018 will take home the grand prize of $100,000 and all teams will take home any profit they make above reserve from the sale of their home.

Meet the teams

Ben and Tom:

Architect graduate Ben and project manager Tom have been best mates since birth and will be using each other’s strengths to their advantage. Ben is a self-confessed workaholic with out of the box thinking and doesn’t mind confrontation at all. Meanwhile Tom is an all-round handyman and is known to get things done in the most time and cost-efficient way.

Claire and Agni:

Claire and Agni are experienced renovators, fit and ready, both in mind and body, to take on the 12-week challenge. Claire is a personal trainer and the couple met at Agni’s Hamilton gym which he co-owns and manages. Together, the couple says that being young, strong and physically fit will give them an edge over the other teams.

These besties from Palmy are ready to bring their can-do attitude, good banter and ability to sweet talk their way into and out of everything in the new season of The Block NZ.
