The Block is a famous Australian reality TV Series. The series shows four or five couples as they go up against each other to remodel and style houses and offer them at sell off at the most astounding cost. The series initially kept running for two back to back seasons in 2003 and 2004, and was initially hosted by Jamie Durie. The Nine Network restored The Block following a six-year nonappearance, with a third season started airing on 22 September 2010, this time hosted by TV personality Scott Cam.
The Block has a substantial number of commercial sponsors and noticeably includes brand sponsorship’s consistently all through episodes. The show enjoys a very big fan following with high TRP ratings.
The Block Australia Show Format:
The first format of the show included four couples with an earlier relationship revamping an abandoned flat square in the Sydney suburb of Bondi, with each couple remodeling a different loft over a time of 12 weeks and with a financial plan of A$40,000. The flats were then sold at sell off, with each couple keeping any benefit made over a set hold cost and the couple with the most elevated benefit winning an A$100,000 prize. The present format is moderately the same with the exception of the series typically includes five couples, it is fundamentally situated in Melbourne suburbs and the financial backing is $100,000+.
The primary season was shot at Bondi and the second at Manly. The third was again in Sydney, in the suburb of Vaucluse. Shifting to Victoria, Australia, the fourth season was taped in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond, Victoria on Cameron Street. Breaking with convention, season four was recorded in four one next to the other houses instead of a flat piece of four. Season four had Shelley Craft join Scott Cam in hosting the show.
Season five started airing in April 2012. Similarly as with season four, season five has held the four different houses format, rather than four flats in a solitary loft hinder as in prior seasons. Season five was again set in Melbourne, on Dorcas Street, and is set in four nearby multi-story town houses. Season six came back to Sydney, in Bondi, for the tenth anniversary. It stayed in Melbourne since season seven. The initial three seasons aired once week after week for 13, 26 and 9 weeks separately. Since season four, it aired over numerous evenings every week.
