Andy and Ben were introduced to a national audience as contestants on the The Block 2016. They soon became known for their friendly pranks, practical jokes and good Aussie banter, with some renovating sprinkled in between!
The boys met in 2010 whilst studying in their hometown of Geelong, where they completed their Bachelor of Education studies over four years at Deakin University.
Andy and Ben had been teaching at Tarneit P-9 College for 5 months and 6 weeks respectively when they got the call up for The Block after three years of unsuccessful applications, and decided to jump at the chance. Highlights of their time on The Block included scoring a perfect 30 out of 30 for guest bedroom and “secret ensuite”, completing the only 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom apartment within The Block, and winning $510,000 at the final auction, while low points include being slammed for “blokey” styling when they learnt that Bic razors and Radox aren’t the most sought after bathroom styling items!
Andy and Ben have been heard on radio K-Rock in Geelong, have showcased Geelong on Getaway for Channel Nine, and have enjoyed hosting many charity events of recent times.
