Network guidelines explain that successful applicants cannot work during production.

Meanwhile, producers have warned contestants that “apply only for long-term couples, family teams and lasting friendships.”

The Block filmed the 2021 season in neighboring Hampton, just two miles from the 2023 location.

One of the Block’s regulars, Denise Jacobs, said East Hampton “lighted up,” even though it was Hampton’s “poor cousin,” which tends to be more expensive.

The casting for The Block continues until October 17. You can sign up here.
