Palmerston North besties Yanita McLeay, 29, and Stace Cottrill, 39, are counting on their firm friendship and "complimentary set of skills" to see them through the rigorous competition of The Block NZ.
With Stace having previously renovated three houses and a commercial building, the mum-of-two definitely knows her way around a building site. While PhD student Yanita doesn't have the same level of experience, her studies have ensured she's well-versed in research, budgeting and problem-solving.
Throughout this season, the BFFs have taken some bold risks with their house, including a novel master bedroom layout and some creative decor decisions. With auction day fast approaching on September 17, Team Orange will soon find out whether their hard work has paid off!
In the meantime, we caught up with Stace and Yanita to talk all things Block-related, and what they plan to do with the prize money if they win big!
Watch what they had to say in the video above, and see more of Stace and Yanita answering our quick fire questions in the video below.
