The contestants of The Block 2019 are here, with five teams ready to take on the former Oslo Hotel in St Kilda.

The location was revealed in October last year, with the run-down former budget hotel double the size of the Gatwick (the site of the 2018 season).

“I looked at this and thought ‘that’s impossible’,” said Block host Scott Cam. “Here we have double the size of what we did last year, and more than six times the size of the original Block in Bondi back in 2003. That’s a big ask.”

The property was built more than 150 years ago, but since fell into disrepair in its later life.

Here is your first look at The Block contestants who will be battling it out this season.
