A star on Channel Nine's 'The Block'
Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Dan Reilly ‘Foreboy’ is a seasoned Block graduate, having competed with his partner Dani in 2012 and 2013.
As teens Dan & Dani watched The Block in 2003. By 2011 they decided they were old and brave enough to apply, however their plans were thwarted when Dan broke his wrist, making them even more determined to apply for the program in 2012.
Despite having no renovation experience this highly competitive couple were confident that their commitment and Dan’s carpentry trade would stand them in good stead to win. They took a fair battering from the judges, from their competitors about their win-at-all-costs attitude and from each other, which tested their relationship but ultimately made them closer than ever.
Since The Block, Dan has upscaled his carpentry qualifications and is now a certified builder. Bitten by The Block bug, he approached the producers looking for a role on the show. He has lived through it all on The Block, and with his trade experience and new credentials is the perfect person to partner Keith and keep this year’s Triple Threat contestants on track.
Dan and Dani have recently moved to a new home they are building in Melbourne’s west.
Dan Reilly is definitely one to watch!
