Drumroll please: Meet the 2018 Blockheads

Meet the five couples renovating an iconic Melbourne landmark.

By Alex Lilly

The Block is back for a 14th season and with a whopping, record-breaking 45,000 entries from around the country the five teams for 2018 have been selected.

The teams will be making over St. Kilda's infamous Gatwick Hotel and it's going to be the biggest project construction-wise the show has ever seen.

"I knew it was a fantastic, iconic building, and I knew it had so much potential, so I was very excited when I heard The Gatwick would be our next project," says host Scott Cam.

So we know Scotty Cam is back hosting along with Shelley Craft, as well as judges Neale Whitaker, Shaynna Blaze and Darren Palmer. "The Blockinator" foreman Keith Schleiger will also be back for season 14 with Dan Reilly, but what about the contestants? Here's what we know so far about this year's Blockheads.

Bianca and Carla (VIC)

Channel Nine say these two are netballing besties, and they're not lying. You may recognise 36 year-old Bianca as she's a Commonwealth Games netball champion and 35 year-old Carla is a former Melbourne Vixens shooter.

Bianca shared the promotional picture and joked, "Probably the only time Carla and I will look shorter than everyone else!!"

Kerrie and Spence (SA)

Married couple Kerrie, 49, and Spence, 47 found each other later in life and have recently moved to the Barossa Valley.

We bet their Wine Country love nest is a sight to behold.

Sara and Hayden (NSW)

31 year-old Sara and 45 year-old Hayden hail from Bondi and are newlywed parents.

Apparently, they "epitomise the saying 'opposites attract'" so we're bound to see some explosive moments from these two.

Hans and Courtney (WA)

Representing the west, Perth couple Hans, 37 and Courtney, 33, are a couple of lovebirds who love to travel and are "full of character."

Reckon they'll have lots of inspiration from their travels?

Norm and Jess (QLD)

And finally, from the Sunshine State, we have Norm, 40, and Jess, 33. These engaged parents are true blue Aussies and locals from the Sunshine Coast may recognise Jess as one half of radio duo BarRat and Jess.

According to The Courier Mail, Jess also founded a company called Sick Sit, which employs people to look after sick kids and do the household chores so busy parents can go to work.
