1. Um… Hamish Blake is apparently being paid MILLIONS to host Lego Masters.
When he’s not hilariously dropping into other people’s Zoom meetings, Hamish Blake has been keeping himself busy hosting Channel Nine’s Lego Masters.
And it turns out Hamish is getting quite a lot of money for his new hosting gig.
According to New Idea, our favourite comedian is earning an eye-watering two million each year from Channel Nine, with his three-year contract renewed every 18 months.
“He is Nine’s anointed son. From the execs to the publicists to the marketing department, he is universally loved,” a network insider supposedly told the publication.
“He can do no wrong and in return gets an extraordinary ongoing multimillion-dollar contract to keep him away from rival networks,” they added.

LEGO Masters Season 2 starts TONIGHT!!! If you need a solid testimonial, when my daughter visited me one day on set she gave the show (or possibly me) One Very Reluctant And Half Hearted Thumbs Up!!! If that doesn’t get you to the TV at 7pm tonight on Ch 9 I don’t know what will. Seriously though, this season is a cracker, we had a blast making it, I’m really excited it’s on, we hope you and the fam enjoy. ????
While nothing has been confirmed by Hamish or the network itself, two million dollars are year to play with lego does seem like a pretty great deal.
Where do we sign?
Lego Masters returns 7:30pm tonight on Channel Nine.
