‘Rock the Block’ Will Return for a Season 2!
HGTV has picked up a sophomore season of its smash hit competition series, Rock the Block.
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!
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.
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.
“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.
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.
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.
