One of the joys of Shelley Craft’s job is coaching contestants to overcome the challenges of The Block, whatever they may be. This year the five couples need her guidance more than ever. As always, Shelley will help contestants stay on track by bringing in buyers’ advocates to provide feedback on the renovations and tips on how to maximize their chances come auction day. Shelley got her big break in the early 1990s when she was discovered while doing work experience at a Brisbane television studio. She quickly progressed from a production assistant to presenting Saturday Disney, where she worked for six years. She then landed several plum jobs in television, working on The Great Outdoors, three Winter Olympics, Australia’s Funniest Home Videos, Domestic Blitz and Reno Rumble.
