Applications are officially open for the 2021 season of The Block.

Only two episodes into its 2020 season, Channel Nine are already on the hunt for its next batch of blockheads. 

Reality TV star hopefuls can now apply for the renovation program’s 17th season, as a casting call out officially went live on Monday.

The casting announcement on CastaSugar states: ‘We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated, hardworking teams of two to participate in Australia’s biggest renovating challenge.’ 

Before you think about applying, you must ensure you’re within the age bracket of 18-65 and are ‘energetic and with a sense of humour.’

The site also claims that ‘previous home renovation experience is an asset, but not required from both partners’.

 

When it comes to the logistics of taking part on the show, the ad from Nine claims that contestants must put their real lives on hold to focus on the show.

It states ‘successful couples must be available for a 10-12 week shoot period from late February, 2021,’ and that ‘you will NOT be able to work’ during this time.

However, it appears contestants will be paid for their time filming the hit show if successfully chosen for the series.

Got what it takes? If you fancy your chances at impressing judges (L to R) Neale Whitaker, Shaynna Blaze and Darren Palmer while making some serious cash, you have until midnight on the September 27 to apply

‘Successful participants will be paid a nominal weekly fee during filming of The Block to cover basic living costs and expenses.’

To be chosen as one of the five teams, the application form said: ‘Long term couples, family teams and enduring friendships need only apply.’

The exact dates of filming and the location of The Block 2021 has yet to be confirmed.  

If you fancy your chances at impressing judges Darren Palmer, Shaynna Blaze and Neale Whitaker while making some serious cash, you have until midnight on the September 27 to apply.
