Season four of HGTV’s hit show “Rock the Block” premiered on March 6, and the competition is already in full swing. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, HGTV host and season four competitor Jonathan Knight opened up about feeling “fear” when the opportunity to compete this season with his “Farmhouse Fixer” partner Kristina Crestin first came along, and how he reached out to previous contestants for advice.

“I know a lot of HGTV people and before we did this, we called and they said, ‘It’s gonna be long hours, you’re gonna lose your voice, you’re gonna get no sleep,’” Knight said.

Crestin agreed, saying her initial reaction to the casting offer was “Oh heck no!” though the designer went on to add that inevitably the duo realized the opportunity to compete was too good to pass up “We were like, ‘It’s “Rock the Block”. We’re gonna do it and we’re gonna win.’”

Knight is one of two competitors this season to have previously appeared on “Rock the Block” as a judge, with the other being Page Turner (who is competing with her “Fix My Flip” partner Mitch Glew).

During the premiere episode, Turner said her two times judging “Rock the Block” (on seasons two and three) have prepared her for the competition, “because I know what it takes to win, and that’s beyond design.” The smack talk began between teams began right away in season four, as Michel Smith Boyd (who is competing with his “Luxe For Less” partner Anthony Elle) told Turner “I liked you better as a judge”, and she clapped right back to say, “You’ll like me better as a winner.”

Knight’s stint as a guest judge was on season three when he and his brother (and fellow New Kids on the Block) band member Jordan Knight evaluated the competitors’ kitchen areas. They gave the win to Jenny and Dave Marrs from “Fixer to Fabulous”, who returned in the season four premiere, turning the tables on Knight by judging his and his competition’s kitchen areas.
