The Block Australia 13

The Block returns and it's back to houses as contestants will be tasked with a renovation of colossal proportions.

Five couples have to transform a dilapidated property into five top-end homes, delivering a room each week to be scored by the judges.

But the star of this year's series is no ordinary building. Built more than 150 years ago on the back of the Victorian gold rush, the Oslo was one of Australia's premier addresses.

Home to society families, the newly rich and the nation's elite, it was the jewel in bayside St Kilda's crown.

However, through the years the building changed hands until it was converted into a low-rent backpacker hostel.

And with decades of neglect the houses became one sprawling mess of a building, making it ripe and ready for a Block makeover.

Joining Scott again this year will be Block veteran Shelley Craft.

Site foremen Keith and Dan will oversee the renovations with the weekly room reveals judged by Neale Whitaker, Shaynna Blaze and Darren Palmer.

The Bachelor South Africa 2

Hosted by Jason Greer, one man gets the opportunity to find the woman of his dreams - and hopefully his bride-to-be - in this primetime reality competition series.

The Bachelor embarks on a romantic journey meeting 24 women. After getting to know each one, he continues to narrow the field until ultimately one woman is left, to whom he proposes marriage in the season finale.

The show also takes an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the lives of each participant involved in this unique courtship.

The bachelor travels to romantic locations with the ladies, introduces them to his closest friends and family and visits their hometowns to meet their parents.

At the end of the journey, he will have had an unforgettable experience and, quite possibly, found true love. But the big mystery is: If he pops the question, will she accept?

This year's bachelor is Marc Buckner - a model, actor and fitness coach who also leases out his homes on Air BnB in Cape Town.

He also had a recurring role as as Bollywood star Sunny Leone's husband Daniel in the ZEE5 original television series Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone.
