Australia’s favourite entertainment show, the Logie Award winning LEGO® Masters, is returning April for its fifth and biggest season yet on Channel 9 and 9Now.
In a world first, the winners and top teams from previous seasons plus a new wildcard duo will face off in a supersized competition to determine the best of the best in LEGO® Masters: Grand Masters.
Hamish Blake is back as host, alongside judge Ryan “Brickman” McNaught, for the toughest challenges ever, and new twists and turns to truly test this elite group of champion builders.
Ryan said: “Being Grand Masters, the expectation is already there. They all know they need to bring something new and exciting, something beyond their best, something we’ve never seen before, and they sure do.”
This year the challenges are tougher than ever, testing each contestant’s skills like never before. They include LEGO® worlds suspended high above the ground; an exciting movie mayhem scene using motors and explosives; and a rocket being launched into the sky.
There will also be special guest appearances from Sophie Monk, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and – to celebrate 100 years of Disney storytelling – the iconic character Mickey Mouse.
Hamish said: “To be invited back this season for Grand Masters I think really solidifies me as the best host that has ever hosted LEGO® Masters Australia, and that is a huge honour.”
LEGO® Masters: Grand Masters will hit unbelievable heights of creativity as the best brick builders in the nation raid the ever-expanding brickpit to get one up on each other. Expect the greatest builds in LEGO® TV history as they battle for the most prized trophy of all.
LEGO® Masters: Grand Masters comes from producers Endemol Shine Australia (a Banijay Company). The series is adapted from an original UK format from Tuesday’s Child Productions and The LEGO® Group.
