Scott Cam is one of Australia’s most loved television personalities- and rightly so! As host of The Block on the Nine Network, Scott’s laidback larrikin attitude has won him millions of fans across Australia, as evidenced by his 2014 Gold Logie award.
Scott grew up in Sydney’s iconic Bondi and after completing school and his carpentry apprenticeship, set off in an old four-wheel drive to explore Australia. In 1990, following a five-year stint working a number of jobs, Scott decided to get back to his building roots and set up his own company. It was on a brief visit home that Scott met his wife Ann, and the family now reside full time in Sydney.
Over the last 20 years Scott has enjoyed a successful partnership with the Nine Network, working across a number of popular programs. Scott’s first television appearance took place on the multi award-winning show, Backyard Blitz, where his experience in the construction industry saw him appointed as the show’s resident builder/carpenter. He continued in this role until the show’s completion in 2007. Scott then became co-host of the top rating lifestyle program Domestic Blitz until 2009, and co-hosted Random Acts of Kindness and appeared regularly on Burke’s Backyard and Renovation Rescue Specials.
2010 saw the return of Channel Nine’s The Block, with Scott as the newly appointed host. Scott was the ideal candidate to share his DIY knowledge and play the role of mentor and occasional judge to the competing couples on the show. Scott took home the silver Logie for Most Popular Presenter and the coveted Gold Logie at the 2014 Annual Logie Awards. 2015 and 2016 saw two further Gold Logie nominations for Scott and The Block continued the trend of winning the Logie Award for Most Popular Reality Program.
Scott has written three successful books on building and home renovations: Home Maintenance for Knuckleheads (2003) and Out the Back (2004). In 2017, Scott released his third book, Scotty’s Top Aussie Sheds (2017), featuring a spectacular line up of some of the nation’s best backyard sheds.
Scott’s commercial partners include Bisley, Mitre10, HIA, Blueprint Homes and McDonald Jones Homes. Scott is also an ambassador for the Samuel Morris Foundation, Miracle Babies Foundation, Georgina Josephine Foundation, Karelle, Sydney Cancer Centre, Australian Apprenticeships, Asbestos Awareness and Friendly Faces Helping Hands Foundation.
