The Block

The Block, Australia’s most successful reality program, returns for an incredible 15th season on Sunday, August 4, at 7.00pm on Nine. 

Five ambitious couples will renovate and transform the neglected Oslo Hotel in St Kilda into five top-end, three-storey homes, restoring it to its former glory as one of Australia’s premier residential addresses.

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

The couples chosen for The Block 2019 from more than 45,000 entries are:

Tess (28) and Luke (30) – Media sales partner and carpenter from Cairns, Queensland
El’ise (33) and Matt (39) – Fashion manager and carpenter from Perth, Western Australia
Jesse (29) and Mel (31) – Real estate agent and contracts administrator from Melbourne, Victoria
Mitch (56) and Mark (57) – Stylish grandads from Sydney New South Wales
Andy (48) and Deb (46) – Stand-up comedian and homewares store owner from Wallabi Point, New South Wales


Block host Scott Cam will again be joined by co-host Shelley Craft. Overseeing the renovations will be site foremen Keith and Dan, with the weekly room reveals judged by Neale Whitaker, Shaynna Blaze and Darren Palmer.

The Block is officially Australia’s richest reality program. It has distributed an astronomical cash total of $20,775,501 to contestants since premiering on Channel Nine in 2003.
