The Block: Fans vs Faves was nominated for ‘Most Popular Reality Program’
The Block: Fans vs Faves was up for ‘Most Popular Reality Program’ at the 62nd Logie Awards last night (Sunday, June 19), as the contestants ditched their hard hats and tool belts for full glam!
Kirsty Lee Akers and husband, Jesse Anderson were in attendance. Akers donned a Racy and Lucky custom-made black lace gown with daring sheer side panels, while Anderson opted for a complementary black suit with western details including big belt buckle and hat.
The couple, who recently celebrated their 17th wedding anniversary, wrote on social media, “Striking a pose on the [Logies] red carpet! Good luck to everyone tonight but especially our [The Block] team.”
They also captioned “Night made!!”, sharing photos with Gold Logie nominee, Karl Stefanovic.
