He also shows the contestants the full schedule on the famous Block whiteboard, and the five couples all take photos of the schedule. This will allow them to plan ahead.
They all head back to The Block and wake up all refreshed and raring to go. This week they will all build a studio bathroom.

Our Blockheads meet two legends of the show for the first time, Foreman Keith and Dan.
They all start building their rooms, as well as the first shopping trips of the three month build.

Design wise, there are lots of curves on The Block already. Both Kyle and Leslie and Leah and Ash attempting impressive curve features on their bathroom roofs.
