LEGO Masters Australia Vs The World Brick Banter Contestants

LEGO Masters Australia Season 6 – Coming 14th April

LEGO Masters Australia is about to premiere their sixth season. After Season 4, arguably one of the best seasons of the show, we saw season 5, LEGO Masters Grand Masters. Where the best contestants from the previous seasons battled it out together. For Season 6 in 2024, the theme is Australia Vs the world.

Four Australian teams, will battler it out against 4 international teams who have had experience on the series in their home countries. These internationals are at a massive advantage. Knowing how to build is one thing, but doing it in the LEGO Masters filming environment is another. The Aussies will have their work made out for them.

But let’s meet the teams!


Sam & Emilio (VIC)

Quirky and hip pop-culture lovers, partners Sam and Emilio are not your average LEGO builders. The loveable couple met two years ago during a LEGO themed adult scavenger hunt, with bricks playing an important part in their bond since day dot.

With Sam taking on the role of technical builder and lateral thinker, Emilio’s creative mind comes up with wild and wacky ideas for Sam to turn into a reality. Most of their MOCs reflect their taste and personal interest, such as DJ decks, Nike Jordans, and even a giant Bubble O’Bill replica.

Sam Emilio - LEGO Masters Australia Season 6 - Brick Banter

Sam –

A talented LEGO creator and television editor, Sam is a stickler for details and perfection in everything he does. Specialising in digital LEGO artwork, he has been commissioned for his creations. He has won prizes and most recently became an exhibiting artist. Sam uses his work to highlight the LGBTQIA+ community and playfully refers to himself as a member of the “GayFOL community”.

A funny, enthusiastic and positive person, Sam’s creations are full of humour, colour and life. His dream build involves a scene of living junk food being chased down by an unruly pack of seagulls on a beach.

Oh, and Sam is a writer here at!

Emilio –

Emilio, a visual merchandiser and DJ, has a keen eye for aesthetics and colour coordination. As a natural creative, LEGO provides another outlet for his imagination to run wild and bring his ideas to life.

Extroverted, down to earth and never one to take anything too seriously. He jokes that as an adult he still feels like a kid in a candy LEGO store, begging his parents for more bricks to play with.

He hopes to one day create a fully functional disco ball. With three sections showcasing different eras in musical history: 1970s disco, 1980s dance and 1990s pop.

Despite their differences, Sam and Emilio think alike, sharing common ideas for their creations and bouncing ideas off each other.

After two years of love and joint LEGO building teamship, they have found their cool and colourful groove, making them formidable opponents for the other contestants this season.

Solo builders Charlie and Hayley will be a force to be reckoned with when paired for the first time in this season’s battle of the best.

Having achieved fabulous success in both their LEGO accomplishments and personal careers. This young female duo are ready to front up against some of the toughest competition LEGO Masters Australia has ever seen.

Charlie Haley - LEGO Masters Australia Season 6 - Brick Banter

Charlie –

At the age of 19, Charlie is the first ever female Master Model Builder in the Southern hemisphere and one of only three in the world. In addition to studying marketing at university, she works as a professional builder at the LEGO Land Discovery Centre in Melbourne.

Endearing, modest and confident, Charlie describes building as her art form and creative expression. Priding herself on the aesthetics of her builds, she follows instinctively from an image in her mind rather than planning or following a pattern.

With a high level of attention to detail and a deep love for mosaics, Charlie’s dream build would be an enormous flower wall. Made up of technic and classic bricks, vibrant patterns, pastel colours and lots of greenery.

Haley –

A full-time accountant and modern-day beauty queen. Hayley currently holds the title of Miss Australia International and Miss Charity Australia. One of six children, she grew up in rural Queensland with fly-in fly-out parents.

With a remote upbringing and not a lot of access to technology, Haley spent her free time immersed in the world of colourful bricks. Constructing her own imaginative creations.

With three degrees to her name, Hayley is an extremely accomplished high achiever. The pageantry work allows her to engage with her charities of choice. She is committed to the importance of giving something back and inspiring others to do the same.

Despite her Disney princess look and sunny demeanour, Hayley is unapologetic in her drive and determination to succeed at everything she does.

Eric & Ben (NSW)

Charismatic and entertaining buddies, Ben and Eric bonded over their love of bricks while working at a LEGO store together.

This ragtag duo is creative and goofy, and they spend around 20 hours a week building. They have a particular interest in smaller custom vignettes, taking apart official kits and turning them into something else entirely.

While they sometimes disagree on Minifig placement, their partnership is the perfect balance of fun and imagination.

They are ready to take their skills out of the LEGO retail space and into the Masters arena.

Eric –

Friendly, witty, perfectionist Eric is the manager of a New South Wales LEGO store. His love of bricks provided him with a safe space throughout his childhood and has continued to be a creative outlet into his adult life.

Working with LEGO and talking about it every day is a dream come true for him. Describing his building style as natural but unpredictable, his best creations pertain to his favourite franchises, such as Star Wars, Marvel, and Indiana Jones.

Honest and never one to shy away from a challenge, Eric’s determination is bound to rise to the surface during the competition.

With a love for storytelling via LEGO, Ben and Eric have a handful of humorous ideas they are ready to bring to life. Such as a large-scale, 10,000-brick monkey build titled Banana Economy.

But do not be fooled by their silly and animated nature. They are competitive to their core and say their penchant for winning. Mixed with their comedy tendencies, is a dangerous mix to be reckoned with.

Shane describes his mother as a “real-life Barbie doll”, which is a testament to her colourful and effervescent personality. He is the yin to Dianne’s yang. A hospitality professional and former academic prodigy. A wizard with numbers and was ranked in the top three mathematicians nationwide during his school years.

Despite such rare prowess, Shane shines in the world of imagination and spends around 15 hours a week building his LEGO creations. Alongside his 11-year-old son and Dianne.

With bricks bridging the gap between generations, Shane likes to construct an original piece of LEGO art. Which Dianne then sprinkles her unique touch upon, in true fairy grandmother style.

With an attention to detail that turns Dianne and Shane’s builds into bespoke pieces of art, their work radiates a sense of wonder.

They are hoping to construct their dream creation in the LEGO Masters arena. A fantasy castle enveloped by exquisite gardens, drawing inspiration from 1980s fantasy and sci-fi films.

If Dianne gets her way, their imaginative brick world will be ruled by the ethereal presence of fairies. Preferably with Tinker Bell holding centre stage.

Funny, gentle and kind, Camille says that his children are his proudest achievement. He will miss them greatly while competing in Australia.

Caroline –

A full-time graphic design student, his sister Caroline’s days consist of studying and creating things. Her best and most joyful LEGO build to date was the giraffe featured in Season 3 of LEGO Masters France. But she hopes to top this one day by building a full-size bed made entirely out of bricks.

Her proudest accomplishment was being accepted into the university where she currently studies. But adding the title of LEGO Masters Australia winner to her name would be a welcome addition to her growing list of accolades.

Describing their LEGO styles as chaotic and random, Camille and Caroline’s biggest strengths are the stories behind their builds. While their weaknesses are in time management. Their strategy is to simply have fun and build what they want to.

In their spare time they hope to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge and visit the local Aldi, because who doesn’t love an international supermarket!
