The Block NZ is back for its fourth season

Shelly and Mark

Block-a-holics rejoice - The Block NZ is back for its fourth season!

This year, our yet-to-be announced teams will be charged with restoring old villas to their former glory, in The Block NZ: Villa Wars.

Mark Richardson is back on board, alongside our brand new challenge host – Shelley Ferguson.

Shelley is Managing Editor of Your Home and Garden. As far as lifestyle magazine experience goes, Shelley is nailing it. And she’s also got a home renovation under her belt.

Moving from judge to challenge host, Shelley is super excited about The Block NZ: Villa Wars, saying:

“The Block NZ gets better every year, so I’m excited to see what 2015’s competitors bring. I can’t wait to see these homes transform from dated to top dollar – bring it on!”

With the villas in dire need of renovation, Mark Richardson can’t wait to see the new teams battle it out, saying:

“I want to see a fight, a fair fight, but a good fight. [T]he contestants … must remember that they’re not trying to beat Libby and Ben or Alex and Corban, they are vying to be the best of the current crop… and this crop looks good!”

MediaWorks is pleased to announce a great family of new and returning sponsors. AMP is proud to be on board as broadcast sponsor, supporting their first season of The Block NZ, along with returning programme partner Honda, and new programme partners Pita Pit and Morepork by Spark.
