Tarek was also a guest judge on Season 1.
Real estate broker extraordinaire Page Turner will judge the living room and foyer transformations. Powerhouse real estate broker Egypt Sherrod and her husband, builder Mike Jackson, will deliberate the main bedroom suite. Designer and restoration specialist Tamara Day will take on the basement renovations, and two fresh faces, interior designer Carmine Sabatella and landscape designer Mike Pyle, stars of the upcoming HGTV series Inside Out, will evaluate the outdoor spaces. The competition culminates with Ken and Anita Corsini as they join incumbent Rock the Block champion, Jasmine Roth, for a final home walk-through before announcing the winning team.

[UPDATE 10/6/20]: Let’s get ready to rock! HGTV has announced the challengers for the second season of its hit competition series Rock the Block. Set to premiere in early 2021, the new season, hosted by highly skilled carpenter, craftsman and designer, Ty Pennington, will have double the star power with eight of the network’s brightest home renovation and design experts pairing up to completely transform identical three-story suburban properties in just one month. The 2021 Rock the Block partner teams are: home renovator and contractor Mike Holmes (Holmes On Homes) and Chicago’s fearless home reno and design expert Alison Victoria (Windy City Rehab); designing dads Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent (Nate and Jeremiah: Save My House); HGTV’s first Design Star winner David Bromstad (My Lottery Dream Home) with the eighth Design Star winner Tiffany Brooks (50K Three Ways); and the couple who can build and design an entire home in 100 days, Brian and Mika Kleinschmidt (100 Day Dream Home). With a $225,000 budget and a whole lot of teamwork, the dueling duos hope to win major bragging rights and their names on a street sign.
“Nothing says high stakes like double the stardom, double the personalities, and double the fun!” said Jane Latman, president, HGTV. “Expect to see impressive displays of strategy, creativity and incredible designs from these top stars in Rock the Block — definitely bring the popcorn.”

‘Rock the Block’ Will Return for a Season 2!
Get ready to rock — round 2! After Season 1 of Rock the Block attracted more than 20.3 million total viewers, the series has been renewed for six action-packed episodes slated to premiere in early 2021!
Top designers Leanne Ford, Jasmine Roth, Mina Starsiak Hawk and Alison Victoria each have four weeks and $175,000 to transform four blank-slate homes on the same block with their signature styles. The designer who adds the highest appraised value earns bragging rights and a street named in her honor.
In season two, four pairs of HGTV’s brightest renovation stars will team up to take on identical three-story suburban properties and transform them into extraordinary custom dream homes. With only one month and $175,000 each, the network duo who adds the most value to their home will proclaim victory and savor the sweet satisfaction of bragging rights.
“Rock the Block has the winning combination of family-friendly competition and high stakes renovations that makes it one of our most popular crowd pleasers,” said Jane Latman, president, HGTV. “We can’t wait for our all-new line-up of HGTV superstars, intense challenges and surprise elements to bring millions of excited fans back to the block.”
There’s no word yet on who will be competing in Season 2, but if it’s anything like Season 1 the teams are sure to blow us away with their creativity and stunning design solutions. Season 1’s all-star line-up featured Jasmine Roth, Mina Starsiak-Hawk, Alison Victoria and Leanne Ford. All of the homes turned out beautifully, but Jasmine Roth came out on top.
Mina Starsiak Hawk transformed her Rock the Block house to reflect her unique personal style of fresh and comfortable.
Alison Victoria transformed her Rock the Block house to reflect her unique personal style of vintage and modern.
Leanne Ford transformed her Rock the Block house to reflect her unique personal style of warm minimalism.
With her house apprising at $1,020,000, Jasmine secured her place as the winner by turning a den into a fourth bedroom with an en suite bathroom, carving a powder bath out of the laundry room and converting the garage into a home gym with climbing wall. These added spaces, along with the oasis-style backyard featuring a pool and wet bar, scored the biggest dollar signs with the appraisers.
