So MAFS is over for the year, you’ve binged Netflix’s juicy doco Tiger King and now you’re looking to fill the gaping big TV-shaped hole in your life.

Enter the show we hope is going to offer up the perfect wholesome content we’re so desperate for in these troubled times – Lego Masters Australia.

The second season of this feel-good, family-friendly reality TV show is the ultimate happy antidote to the chaos of coronavirus right now, which has forced many of our beloved Aussie reality TV shows to halt production, or be postponed indefinitely.

Thankfully, all the episodes of Channel Nine’s new wholesome show were already filmed before the Australian government’s strict new social distancing rules and ban on “gatherings” were implemented, so the entire show is in the can and ready to be beamed into our living rooms.

This season, eight teams of two will battle it out each week in an attempt to impress the show’s host, funnyman Hamish Blake and judge Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught, who is the only person in the southern hemisphere to be credited as a certified Lego professional.

That means he’s got the big tick from Lego HQ and is legally allowed to represent the brand.

Each week, the teams will complete a series of dazzling and unique challenges in the quest to be crowned the Lego Master, as well as take home a whopping $100,000.

These two childhood friends have known each other since they were seven years old, and now work as a team to expand their respective Lego collections.

Jennifer is a researcher and program coordinator who also loves knitting and craft, as well as Lego, describing herself as a “Jen-Gineer”.

Stay-at-home mum by day and self-described “Batman” by night, Jodie is a member of Lego fan group Southern Bricks in South Australia. She is such an expert that she was recently on the committee for – and displayed one of her builds at – Brixpo, her Lego User Group sold-out event, where she dressed up as Lego Batman.

Jodie’s son has autism, and she believes encouraging him to play with Lego helps to capture and fuel his imagination.
