Curl up on the couch and throw on your best hi-vis, because The Block is back!
And this year, true to form, host Scott Cam has more than a few twists up his flannel sleeves.
First up, the return of four all-stars. Two couples will be returning to compete against a fresh batch of Blockheads this year, to try and score the win they missed out on last time in this season of Fans vs Faves.
Then, in a Block first, all five teams will be competing in a suburban cul de sac, renovating five very different houses – each with newly built basement areas – in the upmarket Melbourne suburb of Hampton.
"That changes up the dynamic between the competitors as well, because the houses are all separate," Scott tells TV WEEK.
The biggest twist of all in 2021, is one that neither the host nor the producers could possibly have foreseen.
It's what returning all-star contestant Ronnie slams in promos for the series as "the biggest cheating scandal in TV history".
Just what happens and who is at the centre will play out as the series airs, but Scott admits he was stunned by what happens and says it "changes everything".
"There's something massive on the horizon that comes from the contestants themselves and it turns The Block on its head," Scott says.
"It turns the whole joint upside down, it turns me upside down and, when it's revealed, it'll turn the viewers upside down as well. It's unbelievable!"
While you settle in for the rollercoaster ride sure to come, scroll through and get to know the contestants competing on The Block this season.
