The Nine Network has revealed the cast for the next season of The Block
The 11th season of the renovation series will be located in the octagonal shaped former Hotel Saville building in South Yarra Melbourne, with the teams given the task of creating five plush apartments.
Executive Producer Julian Cress has promised a ‘back to basics’ approached for the new season after viewers expressed their displeasure with the complicated eliminations and over-dramatized Triple-Threat season earlier this year.
“This is one of the hardest builds I’ve ever done, both in television and as a chippie,” host Scott Cam has said of the unusually shaped building.
“It’s a huge challenge we’ve set the contestants. Some of them are going to struggle. It’s going to be tough!”
The new season of The Block will commence next month after the completion of The Hot Plate. Cast for the new season are, (Left to Right)
