It's no secret that Dave and I are pretty darn crafty. We also work really well together. We did the same Bachelors degree and got awesome grades by combining my strengths to cover Dave's weaknesses and vice versa.

We have been pretty well glued to The Block NZ this season and as we have our first home on our minds this show has been a great watch.

Aside from the terribly cheesy scripted dramas and promos, the teams did so well to put out the results they did. With the final auction totals being a bit controversial there are a lot of unhappy people but hey, this is NZ television and it was their first crack. With the added pressure of a live auction there was bound to be a few hiccups.

With all that said, Dave and I are going to be applying for the next series when they start taking applications. I think that the skills that we would gain from 10 weeks of solid renovation would be invaluable. Plus a bit of money for a deposit wouldn't go astray.

Dave and I are an amazing team, sure it will be stressful, no doubt about that, but our styles and tastes are so similar that we would pose an epic challenge to the other contestants.

There goes my spiel, what do you think?


  1. You two would be awesome!
    Also, what was controversial about the final auction totals? I saw some of it but didn't watch the whole thing last night.

    1. Thanks Jess!
      The controversial stuff was that the first house (Libby & Bens) got over $150k over its reserve and the last house (Rachel & Tysons) only just met the reserve so they made no profit. There were only like 10 people out of a few hundred in the room actually bidding and there was a phone bidder that got cut off and they just went on without trying to get them back on the line which would have bumped up the price a bit.

    1. Thanks! I'm so excited, might have to subscribe to my Home and Garden!

  3. I would never in a million years apply for anything like this, but I can see why it appeals to people! I hope you get in if you do apply! :)

    1. Haha you mean When I do apply :P

      Yea the reality/scripted cheesy stuff wouldn't be the greatest but our relationship is solid.

  4. Amy that'd be so freaking cool and I'd DEF be tuning in for that. What do you have to do for the application? You should show them your blog :)


I would love to hear from you!
