Think you’ve got what it takes to match it with other couples hell bent on renovation? WHAT?! Are you CRAZY?! THEY WILL EAT YOU ALIVE!!! Casting for the 2012 series of The Block has commenced, and you could get your mug on TV while you live in a “renovator’s delight” and possibly even win. Well, you might. From the press release:

Think you have what it takes to out-design, out-renovate, out-decorate and become the winner of The Block? Are you the next Jenna and Josh or John and Neisha? Casting for the next season of Australia’s favourite renovation-reality series has commenced.

If you have a passion for renovation and think you know what property buyers want, grab your partner and apply to be part of Australian television’s highest rating series ever.

Over the first three monster seasons, 12 properties were sold on The Block and three winning couples walked away with over $700,000 in prizemoney. In 2010 the show gave away more than $500,000 to four couples. Now in its fourth season, The Block 2011, promises to deliver the same success.

This year the renovation-reality blockbuster has been screened five nights a week at 7 o’Block in a new format, hosted again by Scott Cam, with challenge master Shelley Craft and judges John McGrath and Neale Whitaker.
Eight couples started out, four were eliminated, and now Australia is watching the four remaining couples who have taken on four very dilapidated houses in Melbourne’s inner-city suburb of Richmond. They’re all vying to make their home the most valuable property when the hammer goes down on auction day.

If you think you are ready to take on The Block 2012 simply go to and apply now. Applications close September 1, 2011.
