Meet Kristy and Brett
Meet Kristy & Brett
Married from Adelaide, SA
Together for ten years and married for three, Kristy and Brett are strong characters who will never be far from the action or the drama on The Block this year.
Both are forthright in their opinions and won’t be afraid to stir the pot in Charming Street. They are very structured in their lives and looking forward to the unpredictability of The Block.
“It’s the unknown that is exciting for us,” Kristy said. “In our roles back in Adelaide we have done it for so long, and you don’t get out of your comfort zone. But with this there is such an unknown and we are looking forward to that.”
The couple own their own house in Adelaide and are planning a renovation, having renovated a bathroom before.
Kristy and Brett work in the power and energy space and have very successful careers. They plan to bring those planning skills to The Block.
Kristy, 34, project manager
Kristy describes herself as very competitive, and that will show early on the program due to the dedication and drive that has marked her successful career.
She wants to create a house that will feature both Victorian and modern contemporary features and she isn’t afraid of getting on the tools, saying: “I’m all for getting my hands dirty.”
She isn’t afraid to call people out if she sees something she thinks is wrong.
“If I see something that is wrong or someone is being unfair, I will be the first person to speak up,” she said.
Brett, 34, safety advisor
Brett works at a power substation but has a history of working as a tiler – which he wants to keep quiet on The Block.
“I’m a former tiler, but I don’t want to tell people that,” he said. “I want to keep it a surprise.”
When he isn’t working he loves Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
This pair admit they can bicker, but they end up making up and laughing.
They knew each other in high school but didn’t get together until they were in their twenties, after meeting again through mutual friends.
They will be a formidable force together on The Block.
