The pair have been best friends since birth!
Meet Ben, 24, and Tom, 24, childhood best friends from Auckland.
With their combined skills, Ben being an architect graduate and Tom a project manager and all-around handyman, this duo are ready for action.
When Tom isn’t busy being a jack of all trades, you can find him working on his motorbike or out on the water, while his DIY partner Ben says while he loves fun banter, he isn’t afraid of confrontation.
According to the architectural graduate, he ‘resolves arguments by winning them’. Watch this space!
Tom says Ben has a knack for creating amazing, out-of-the-ordinary designs, while Tom’s commitment to get things done in the most cost and time-efficient manner provides the perfect foil to Ben’s tendency towards shortcuts or dodgy deals.
Ben believes lack of sleep could be the pair’s nemesis while on The Block NZ.
