Southland siblings Libby and Ben were tonight crowned the winners of TV3’s The Block NZ, selling their home for $961,000.
The ten-week competition saw four couples battle it out for DIY divinity, renovating four rundown houses on Auckland’s Anzac Street.
Libby and Ben sold their winning house for $961,000 making a profit of $157,000.
The couple keep the profit made on the house as well as walk away with an $80,000 cash prize.
MediaWorks acting head of programming Mark Caulton says he couldn’t believe the response to the show.
“We are absolutely thrilled with the way Kiwis have embraced the show and the couples. The Block NZ has exceeded all our expectations.”
