The Block’s Kyle and Lesley may have had a bit of a rush trot from the judges on season 19 of the home renovation show, but that wouldn’t stop them from returning next season.
Despite consistently receiving negative feedback from the judges, Kyle and Lesley officially came in third place at the The Block 2023 auctions, beating both Kristy and Brett and Leah and Ash.
During a chat with Yahoo Lifestyle, the parents of two said that they’d love to return for season 20.
“If they called us, there would be no hesitation,” Leslie told the publication “Now we’ve done it, I feel like we’d go in with a bit more gameplay than what we did before.”
Their hope to return may not be in vain either, The Block seasons All Stars, Fans v Faves and Triple Threat all included returning contestants, some who appeared in back-to-back seasons.
Kyle said they would have an advantage if they return
Kyle told the publication that the experience he gained from The Block 2023 would surely help him if he were to return to the show.
“Obviously they can change it up completely. We got schedules, budgets, everything up front, so obviously they can flip that and take it back to how they used to do it and then that would be a fully different experience for us,” he said.
“But you know the person that you need to be on-site and what relationships you need to have with the builders and trades and stuff like that, and you would approach it a bit differently. I would do it, even though it’s Phillip Island and I haven’t heard amazing things about the weather at that time of the year.”
When is The Block 2024 on?
An official premiere date hasn’t been announced yet. However, The Block generally starts in August each year, so the same is expected for 2024.
What we do know, however, is that this year’s Blockheads will be renovating spots by the sea on Phillip Island in Victoria.
“Nothing is more important to us than delivering an incredible season for our 20th anniversary,” Executive producer Julian Cress told 9Entertainment.
“It’s such a big milestone for us and we are absolutely delighted that we found the perfect location in such a wonderful holiday destination in Phillip Island.”
The renovations will take place at a popular holiday park, which has already been purchased by Channel Nine and is ready to be built at.
“We’ve purchased a holiday park just around the corner from the world-famous Penguin Parade, and so far the community has shown huge support for us and we are hoping for a really warm welcome for our new crop of contestants in the 20th year.”
