The Block: Hamish Blake and Zoe Foster Blake rumoured to be buyers

The pair reportedly has their sights set on one of the houses this year.

Hamish Blake and wife Zoe Foster Blake are rumoured to have their sights set on a property from this year's season of The Block.

Woman's Day reports the pair will be hoping to come out on top at the auction for one of the properties this year.

The pair is believed to be very interested in the show this year, as their former assistant is a contestant, and rumour has it they've already been for an inspection at the property.

"They know what a good investment The Block houses are – and even though they've been living in Sydney for three years now, Melbourne will always be home for them," an insider tells the publication. "This would be just the perfect place to stay when they visit.

"Not to mention, it could potentially help their assistant and dear friend take home the extra $100,000 prize money if they win."


It comes after a Charming Street resident told Yahoo Lifestyle that The Block team has been mostly good to those living in the area where they are shooting the 2023 season.

"For 99% of the time, The Block team has been great to work with,” a resident who asked to be anonymous told us. “On any other building project, such as the many other builds occurring in the area, we would not have had any communication.

“Of course it doesn’t mean they’ve been perfect but they do talk to the residents and try to work out any challenges.”

Producers have certainly ruffled a few feathers during the shooting of the season, with Nine at one point asking residents to keep their cars off the street while they shot an ad for the show one weekend.

Residents received a letter telling them vintage cars from the 1950s will be used on the street and they wanted to ensure no "modern cars" are in the shot.

"Every year we work on the TVC to reveal the street to our loyal viewers. It showcases the houses and the location. In this case we will be featuring the 1950s,” the letter said.

“As we are dressing the street, we do request on Friday evening that you please not park on the street or in your driveways. We would like to keep modern cars out of the shots. If you need assistance to move your vehicles we can assist you in the morning.

“On Saturday morning 0700-0930 we will film on the footpath outside 35 with our camera looking towards house 24 and 22. Can house 24 kindly keep any cars off site so we don’t have a modern car in the shot, that would be greatly appreciated.”

One resident shared the letter on Facebook, saying that they had to discuss the request with a publicity representative as they didn’t want to park their car elsewhere during the day.

“We requested to put our cars further up the driveway as this request was a bit much for us!” they wrote. “It doesn’t work for us to not have the car at the house this weekend…unfortunately they didn’t consider the potential impact of people’s possible reactions.”

Others commented on the Facebook post, with one saying it was an “unreasonable” request.

“No way would I be doing what they want, the neighbours didn’t ask for The Block to be done in this street, so no way would I follow [those] rules,” another added.
