The Block NZ contestants revealed

The four couples taking part in the first season of The Block NZ come from Auckland, Hamilton, New Plymouth, Wellington and Christchurch.
The four couples are:
Video introductions with each of the couples can be viewed on TV3.co.nz.
The Block NZ is the first local version of the international renovation-reality series. Hosted by Black Cap-turned-broadcaster Mark Richardson and Shannon Ryan (FOUR Live), it sees these four couples compete to renovate four run-down houses in the upmarket seaside suburb of Takapuna in Auckland.
Room by room, week by week, they'll fix up the entire house to sell at auction for the highest price - and they have to take leave from their jobs and lives and live in the houses while they do it. That means no kitchen, no bathroom, not even a clean place to sleep, until that room is renovated.
Each couple will get to keep the profit from the sale of their own property on auction night. And after the last auctioneer’s gavel goes down the couple whose property sells for the most over reserve wins an additional US$80,000.
“We had more than 1000 couples apply and all of them were phenomenal,” says MediaWorks TV Head of Factual Production Sue Woodfield.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better group to pick from and have ended up with four great couples from across the country.
“There’s a mixture of experience, but what they all have in common is that they are all fun, energetic, and have very strong relationships. There’s a huge amount at stake for all of the couples, and they are all really committed to this potentially life changing experience.”
The Block NZ will screen on TV3 at 7.30pm on Wednesday and Thursday nights, premiering on July 4.
