The Block

Which of your fave Block contestants are still together?

Did The Block make or break these couples?

By Philippa Tonkin
Out of the fourteen seasons of The Block Australia, there have been 41 couples (not including the platonic pairs that have graced our screens). Out of this 41, only 3 of the couples have broken up – reasonably good odds if you ask us.
So the question remains is it The Block and its crazy lifestyle that bonds our favourite reality stars together forever or are only the strongest couples chosen to go on the show in the first place?
We've broken it down for you so keep scrolling to find out!

Season one couples:

Adam and Fiona: Still together
After taking home a prize of $256,000, the season one winners wrote their very own renovation book, 'Adam and Fiona's Renos On A Budget: How We Renovated Our Way To The Block' and then started their own interior design and renovation consultancy business, 'Design and Everything'.
Adam noted they got a bit bored working with each other.
"We'd get home and all we'd talk about was work and money!" said Adam.
The pair then decided to pursue separate careers and Fiona, 35, now has a business in the beauty industry, while Adam works for Freedom Kitchens.

Warren and Gavin: Still together
Warren and Gavin became household names after their time on The Block and so decided to use this fame to start their own interior design business, 'Designer Boys'. Speaking to The Interiors Addict in 2013, Gavin said "we were selected for The Block in 2003 and it literally changed our lives forever".
Paul and Kylie: Still together
15 years on, Paul and Kylie are still together and running their plumbing and maintenance business, 'New Era'.
Phil and Amity: Still together
Phil and Amity loved their time on The Block so much they returned ten years later to star on The Block: All Stars.
From her time on the reality show, Amity even gained a record contract and released a album. The couple renovated their own house in early 2016, documenting the process on their blog 'Doing our Block'.

Season two couples:

Jason and Kirsten: presumably still married
Jason and Kirsten are still presumably married although there's not much out there about this couple of Blockheads. Jason is currently ruling the business world; he is the managing partner and founder of Johnson, which he launched in 2015 after he left CT Partners Executive Search.
Andrew and Jamie: married with kids
After their time on The Block, Andrew's profile increased dramatically and has since become one of Australia's most recognisable faces. Shortly after their win, he was offered a position with the What's Good For You team and joined the television program in 2006.
Since then, he has gone onto appear on and host numerous programs such as The Project, Studio 10, Breakfast on Channel 10, The Living Room, Channel 7's National Medical Editor and now hosts Pointless on Channel 10.
