Meet The Block 2020 contestants ready for the renovation rumble of the decades

Tools at the ready.

By Maddison Hockey
Every year The Block returns bigger and better than seasons past, and this year will be no exception as the show takes us back through the decades.
Five couples will battle it out to renovate five homes from five different eras in this year's big twist.
The Block 2020 will take viewers on a five-decade time warp from the dawn of the 20th century to the post-war boom of the 1950s.
Five period homes from the 1910s, 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s, all in decrepit condition, will be transformed by five couples on a huge block of land in the heart of Brighton, Melbourne.

What's The Block without host and TV WEEK Logie winner Scott Cam? We don't want to know, and luckily enough won't as the show veteran returns for the 16th season.
"Every year we aim to give viewers something new and I know that Australia will fall in love with our latest series as we step back in time to last century," he said.
And if there wasn't enough reno drama to keep viewers hooked, the COVID pandemic will also wreak havoc on the show.
"Filmed during the onset of the pandemic, this season has more drama and emotion than we've ever seen," the show teases. "Plus, the quality of the finished rooms will blow you away. Strap yourself in for a Block like you've never seen before."
Joining Scott is co-host, Shelley Craft, site foremen Keith and Dan, and beloved renovation judges, Neale Whitaker, Shaynna Blaze and Darren Palmer.
So who's braving The Block for the chance to win $100,000 and the profit from their renovation?
Check out 2020's teams below before the show begins Sunday, August 23 at 7pm on Nine and 9Now.
