Block-a-holics can start to celebrate! Season five of The Block NZ returns to Kiwi screens on Sunday 29 May, and this time with a twist….


It’s girls vs boys!

There’s a bit of a twist to this year’s season of The Block NZ! Gone are the loved up couples, this season we’re in the friend zone with each team being made up of two best mates. Two teams of women and two teams of men will compete to take four 1980s town houses into the 21st century in the bustling residential suburb of Meadowbank. They’re leaving their girlfriends, boyfriends, and pets behind, while they test their skills and friendships in the ultimate renovation reality show where only one team can win. Down your tools and get your remote controls ready for The Block NZ: Girls Vs Boys!

Taking in the ugliest houses ever

Two female teams and two male teams will face-off against each other in the biggest Block challenge to date – 1980s townhouses. Possibly the ugliest homes to date on The Block NZ, they will be transformed into the most environmentally friendly, energy efficient and sustainable houses the contestants have ever been tasked with.

The Block NZ: Girls v Boys screens Sundays at 7pm and Monday – Wednesday, 7.30pm on TV3.
