Tim Cotton and Arthur Gillies – AKA Team Blue – have won The Block NZ 2021 and pocketed a staggering $760,000 in winnings as their property sold for a record-smashing sum.

All four of this season’s Point Chevalier houses went under the hammer in The Block NZ grand final on Sunday night and sold for over $2 million each, landing the teams the show’s biggest ever profits.

Cotton and Gillies, both 26, secured the winning sale price at $2,825,000, earning them a $660,000 profit and the coveted $100,000 in bonus prize money.

Team Blue’s house was the first to go to auction and the pair were in disbelief as it slowly dawned on them they had won.

“Had you said at the start of 2020 that we’d be crowned Block NZ champions in November 2021 we’d have been pretty discombobulated!” Cotton and Gillies said in a statement.

“We can’t quite believe what we’ve achieved at the auction and we’re overjoyed we get to share the success with the other teams.”

The results for the other three teams, who all also pocketed huge profits, are as follows:

  • Connie and Rachel: Sale price: $2,692,000, profit: $422,000
  • Meg and Dan: Sale price: $2,700,000, profit $478,000
  • Dylan and Keegan: Sale price: $2,745,000, profit: $590,000
