Meet Stu and Amy, the oldest duo to compete on The Block NZ.
They may be the oldest team, but don't be fooled, this couple believe their ages are their biggest advantage.
Renovation enthusiasts Stu, 46, and Amy, 39, hail from Gisborne. Stu is a plumber and self-confessed bogan. His interests include cars, surfing and a couple of beers. Amy is a beauty therapist and says her proudest moment was becoming a mother.
The blended family live under one roof with their children and two cats. Both Amy and Stu are experienced in renovating spaces and love being able to bring their creative thoughts to fruition.
Amy's organisational skills, eclectic taste and flair for design coupled with Stu's plumbing and painting prowess make them a formidable team.
Funny, creative and generous, 'with just enough crazy to keep it interesting', Amy says she can be bit of a hothead – and more than a little stubborn! Stu, who Amy describes as her 'rock', says he's the life of the party and can get along with anyone. And The Block NZ watchers beware; Stu has a penchant for dad jokes.
Both Amy and Stu say their biggest struggle will be being away from their kids.
