The Block host Scott Cam's million dollar payday ahead of season 20

The builder-turned-TV presenter is raking it in.

Just a few weeks after The Block’s Steph and Gian sold their Charming Street property for a whopping $5 million, the show’s host Scott Cam has had an impressive payday himself.

The 61-year-old Channel Nine star sold one of his properties for $3.1 million this week, which is more than double what he paid for it seven years ago.

The NSW farmhouse, which is located in Barigan near Mudgee, is a four-bedroom, two-bathroom home with a built-in pool, a large kitchen and a fireplace in the lounge room. It also features a mud room and comes with steel cattle yards and sheds.

Scott purchased the property for $1.35 million in 2016, according to, which means he has made a profit of $1.75 million.

The sale comes shortly after it was announced that the Gisborne property Scott renovated on last year’s season of The Block has hit the market with an asking price of $4.1 million - $4.3 million.

The luxury four-bedroom pad, which he nicknamed Camalot, includes a 3D-printed concrete cabana, an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven, and a shed with a “man cave”.


“I think the house has amazing artwork and design, and it’s full of history, which I love. It’s going to make a family happy as it’s a wonderful family home,” Scott told Nine.

Scott’s impressive real estate portfolio also includes an $11 million mansion in Vaucluse, a $2 million property in Rosebery, and a coastal house in Narrawallee.

The Block’s executive producer Julian Cress recently announced that season 20 will be filmed on Phillip Island, which is located 90 minutes south of Melbourne.

The island, which is well known for its colony of little penguins, is a popular tourist destination visited by 3.5 million people annually and has a permanent population of around 14,000.

The show was originally set to take place in the country Victorian town of Daylesford but was forced to relocate in September due to permit issues and complaints from locals.

Channel Nine recently confirmed at their annual Upfront event that Scott Cam will be returning to host the show, while Neale Whitaker announced on Instagram in July that he will be back as a full-time judge for season 20.


Casting is currently underway for the new season, however, there is potential for the new season to feature the return of some past contestants.

An insider tells Yahoo Lifestyle: “There is still some chatter about bringing back some celebrated contestants for the 20th season but applications are still open for newbies. So the rumour is it will be half newbies and half returnees.”
