Auditions: The Block

The Block recently announced casting for its 2018 season, which has previously been confirmed as The Gatwick hotel in St. Kilda.

Couples must be aged between 18-65, available for a 10-12 week shoot period from mid January until April 2018.

Previous home renovation experience is an asset, but not required from both partners. Successful participants are paid a nominal weekly fee during filming to cover basic living costs and expenses.

Producer Julian Cress has today told News Corp what it takes to be cast: persistence.

“People shouldn’t feel disheartened if they don’t make it on the show first time,” Cress says. “So many couples have tried a number of times before they made it.”

30 short-listed teams are flown to The Block headquarters in Melbourne and given the challenge of styling a room in 30 minutes.

“We get to see how they work as a team on camera — how quickly they make and execute decisions — by giving them a choice of 200 items they can put in a room,” Cress says.
