When The Block returns in 2013, it'll be with your favourite Blockheads.
We're bringing back four couples who didn't win The Block, but thought they should have — Amity and Phil (Season One), Mark and Duncan (Season Three), Josh and Jenna (Season Four) and Dani and Dan (Season Five).
Need a refresher? Here's some info on each of the returning Blockheads:
Amity and Phil
Introduced to Australia as carefree and ambitious newlyweds in 2003, Phil was in marketing and Amity, a talented singer songwriter, had aspirations of becoming a star. Despite finishing fourth behind winners Adam and Fiona, Phil and Amity took home a $60,000 profit for their efforts when their apartment fetched $655,000. Fast forward 10 years, they are now living in a rented home in the Adelaide suburbs, and parents of two children aged six and two. Winning the All Stars season means they can finally own their own home.
Mark and Duncan
The "Two Fat Tradies", Sydneysiders Mark and Duncan met by chance in a timber yard more than 20 years ago and have been close friends ever since. They had Australia in stitches from the get-go in 2010, and with a combined total of 50 years on the tools, no one in the show's history comes close to knowing as much as they do about building. They finished fourth come Auction Day, splitting $47,000 between them. This time, they’re back with something to prove.
Josh and Jenna
The youngest contestants in The Block’s history, Josh, a plumber, and Jenna, a hairdresser, are most fondly remembered as the most... fiery couple in the show's history, with frequent fights and meltdowns, but during the finale, the nation's hearts melted when Josh proposed to Jenna moments before their auction. Their house then failed to sell on the night, selling a few days later, scoring them a $50,000 profit. Now newlyweds, Josh and Jenna are back to wow us with their bold design ideas once more.
Dani and Dan
As teens, they watched The Block in 2003, and in 2012, they gave it a go themselves. Their win-at-all-costs attitude mightn't have won them many friends, but it got results, with their South Melbourne property selling for $1,440,000, an astonishing $448,000 above the reserve price. Now that they've caught the renovating bug, they're bringing their A-game to make sure this time, they come out on top.
