Maree And James
South Auckland high-school sweethearts Maree and James have been together 13 years. While marriage is definitely on the cards, these two have been focused on getting their careers and their home set up.
Maree, 27, is an Events Manager, running large scale events and hopes to continue in events and project management when The Block NZ journey is over.
James, 28, is a property valuer who loves looking at new developments and projects and is looking forward to working on a full renovation from start to finish.
James is part Cook Island and Maree is Samoan, Chinese and half NZ European. Both are very proud of their cultural heritage and Maree was honoured to represent her background when she was crowned Miss Samoa NZ in 2010.
Together they love doing crossfit, dragon boating, roadbiking, traveling and spending quality time with their nephew and godson Taiyon.
