The contestants on The Block Glasshouse will be hoping for record prices for the luxurious apartments they have created when the hammer falls at auction in the grand finale on Sunday, October 12, at 6.30pm on Channel Nine.
Australia’s favourite renovation reality program will reach a nailbiting climax as the buying public decide which couples will be rewarded for their hard work, styling finesse and long weeks of personal sacrifice, away from family and friends.
Ten weeks ago, five couples first laid eyes on the 3,540-square metre,1980s office block they were tasked with transforming into five split-level atrium apartments, with underground car parks and 70-square metre lock-up storage units.
Since then, The Block Glasshouse has been a smash hit with viewers, consistently topping the ratings as Australia’s number one program.
Competing in the auctions are the ten Blockheads who have become household names over the past few months:
APARTMENT 1: Michael (31) and Carlene (31) from the Gold Coast, QLD
APARTMENT 2: Chris (24) and Jenna (26) from Campbelltown, NSW
APARTMENT 3: Maxine (24) and Karstan (26) from Newcastle, NSW
APARTMENT 4: Shannon (35) and Simon (28) born in TAS, raised in Coffs Harbour, NSW
APARTMENT 5: Darren (32) and Deanne (42) from Melbourne, VIC
Each couple has enlisted a real estate agent and is responsible for overseeing the marketing of their property for sale, fully furnished. Everything they have put in throughout the renovation – every appliance, fitting and furnishing – goes to the buyer.
All couples will be given a reserve price and whatever the apartment sells for above that reserve, they will get to pocket. The couple whose apartment sells for the highest amount above its reserve will be named the winner of The Block Glasshouse, and will bank an extra $100,000 in prizemoney.
The Block Fans v Faves series, broadcast earlier this year, was life-changing for all the contestants. No couple left with less than $500,000 and the winners, Steve and Chantelle, pocketed a staggering $736,000.
