The Block is an Australian reality television show broadcast on the Nine Network. The show sees four couples compete against each other to renovate a home in an apartment block and sell it at auction for the highest price. “The Block” returns for 2011 in the new location of Melbourne. This year it’s five nights a week, hosted by reno veteran Scott Cam. Eight couples turn up to compete in a fierce elimination challenge that will see the final four move into this year’s Block – four dilapidated worker’s cottages.
