HGTV can't be stopped: If you've been loving A Very Brady Renovation and the collective work of The Brady Bunch kids alongside your favorite TV hosts, you're going to want to tune in for Rock the Block. HGTV’s new competition series switches up the game, showing a different side of well-known home reno stars and honestly, we're wondering why this hasn't happened before!
Here's everything you need to know about Rock the Block.
What is Rock the Block about?
Premiering on Monday, October 21, Rock the Block will feature four of HGTV’s most talented women going up against each other to transform identical suburban Los Angeles properties into one-of-a-kind homes that stand out from the rest on the block.
Over the course of four weeks and with a budget of $175,000 each, the home reno experts will renovate side-by-side homes and the woman who adds the most value to her pad will claim the victory, plus rewards like a street named after her on the most rocking block in the country, and of course, bragging rights.
Throughout the series, special HGTV guests will assess the spaces in each home as they are completed and at the end of the four weeks, there will a full top-to-bottom inspection of the newly renovated homes before the winner is officially crowned.
Who is the cast of Rock the Block?
HGTV’s new competition series will be the ultimate showdown between the fiercest women in the home renovation and design business. The cast of Rock the Block includes:
- Good Bones’ Mina Starsiak
- Hidden Potential’s Jasmine Roth
- Restored by the Fords’ Leanne Ford

The Property Brothers star and real estate expert Drew Scott will host the show.
But Drew won't be alone, he'll be joined by several guest judges: Holmes & Holmes’ Mike Holmes will evaluate the kitchens, while 90 Day Dream Home’s Brian and Mika Kleinschmidt will evaluate the rooms and outdoor living spaces. Rehab Addict’s Nicole Curtis and HGTV Smart Home’s Tiffany Brooks will also stop by for special guest appearances.
