With a brand new season of Lego Masters about to get underway, we thought we’d take a trip down memory lane and revisit the winning duo who each took home a coveted Lego trophy on the debut season of the show last year.

This season’s contestants have had a high standard set for them by the show’s 2019 winners.

Judge Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught, who is back again for the second season this year, described Henry and Cade’s model as “just epic”.

“You both played to your strengths,” he during the finale episode.

“Henry, you love robots and you can really see that, and Cade, to do that with the wave we saw that you have sculpting ability.

“Well done guys.”

Unlike many of this year’s contestants, who are lifelong friends or partners, Henry and Cafe met just hours before they recorded their first episode together.

“We didn’t know each other at all! We actually first spoke 12 hours before the show,” Henry told Channel Nine last year.

“We met each other the afternoon before filming the first episode. We had a dinner together. Cade always calls it our ‘awkward first date’. We were like ‘You like LEGO?’, ‘Oh yeah, I like LEGO. What do you like?’ Now we’re really good mates.

“We talk almost all the time, and I’m sure we’ll continue to. We’ve had this amazing journey together. It’s hard not to be friends forever after something like this. The first season of this new show, not knowing each other, it’s like all the stars aligned.”

Cade added: “Yeah, I think a big part of it was we just had a lot of fun together. Obviously we took the competition seriously. Every time we built like it was our last build. But we just had fun. We had fun mucking around.”

Last year, Lego Masters was a ratings bonanza for Channel Nine, with every episode pulling in more than a million viewers each night.

Nine will be hoping to replicate that success in 2020, following the end of its other reality TV hit, Married At First Sight.
