Design consultant Stace and PHD student Yanita are two besties from Palmerston North who are this year’s Team Orange on The Block NZ
Meet Team Orange from The Block
Hailing from Palmerston North, besties Stace Cottrill and Yanita McLeay are this year’s Team Orange on The Block NZ. Yanita says they’re both a little bit stubborn and like things their own way, but the bubbly duo bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm that’s sure to exhaust their opponents and win lots of fans.
Stace, 39, works as a freelance designer and consultant and has two sons that she’s going to miss a lot. Yanita, 29, is currently completing a PhD and says “Both Stace and I bring a complimentary set of skills to The Block which we are fast discovering is a fantastic combination.”
As a student, Yanita is a pro budgeter and her research skills and quick thinking should come in handy in the challenges. Stace has renovated three houses and a commercial building, which will be invaluable experience throughout the competition.
As friends and flatmates Stace and Yanita share a close bond and believe their Block experience will only strengthen their friendship. Good luck ladies!
