LEGO Masters Australia Season 2 Kicks Off Today

LEGO Masters Australia Season 2

Season 1 of LEGO Masters US may already be over, but it seems that Australian fans of the LEGO-inspired reality show will now see more of Hamish Blake and seasoned LEGO Certified Professional Ryan ‘The BrickMan‘ McNaught as LEGO Masters Australia Season 2 kicks off today.

The highly successful collaboration between Tuesday’s Child Productions and the LEGO Group saw a huge audience viewership of more than 1.3 million all over Australia – prompting both companies to bet another season for the show. Here’s a look at this batch of LEGO Masters Australia Season 2 contestants, all vying for that sweet $100,000 prize and title to become the country’s next pair of LEGO Masters.

Here’s a video that introduces our eight pairs of LEGO Masters hopefuls. What strikes me the most is that unlike our initial batch of contestants from the first season of the show, Season 2’s contestants seem to be more diverse, representing a larger portion of the LEGO fan community. One of the criticisms that were thrown over at the show during its first season is its seemingly “unbalanced” roster of contestants, consisting of professional LEGO builders as well. I’m not familiar with this next wave of contestants but based on their video interviews, I can fairly say that they represent a much better section of the larger LEGO fan community.

The first episode of LEGO Masters Australia Season 2 will air on Nine today, April 19, at 7:00 PM (AEST).
