Last July, LEGO fans in the US were thrilled to hear the news that the ultimate LEGO reality TV show is now finally picked up by FOX and it looks like it’s even getting better. LEGO and Fox Broadcasting have finally announced and welcomed onboard the host of the upcoming LEGO Masters US TV show. I have some initial guesses including Chris Pratt and even David Beckham. And I’m delighted to hear that it will finally be LEGO Batman himself – Will Arnett – who will be at the helm of this highly intense LEGO reality TV show.

The multi-talented actor behind LEGO Batman’s brooding voice will bring this contest to an all-new level of brick intensity when he guides pairs of brick contenders beginning February 5. According to FOX, “The series will feature pairs of LEGO enthusiasts facing off in unbelievable brick-building challenges. Throughout the competition, Arnett, alongside expert judges, will encourage the builders, introduce incredible challenges and put the creations to the test until one duo is crowned LEGO Masters.”
LEGO Masters has been a huge success both in the UK and Australia and is expected to have a warm welcome from millions of LEGO fans across the US. A website has been launched last July to facilitate auditions for the TV show, but my guess is that the roster is already complete and we will get to hear the final list of LEGO Masters US contestants anytime soon. Personally, I’m hoping to see Tyler and Sean join the fray, but I guess we will soon find out.
Similar to their UK and Australian counterparts, LEGO Masters US will stretch the limits of our builder-contenders as they figure their way out of the craziest, nearly-impossible LEGO building tasks that will be thrown at them. We’re still yet to see who will be given the most daunting task of judging these creations. For LEGO Masters Australia for example, the arduous task was given to Australian LEGO Certified Professional Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught. It was definitely not an easy task being the show’s judge and we’ll have to see to whom this sobering mantle will fall in.
