Meet Lisa & Ribz

If confidence is key, Lisa (Ngai Tahu and Ngati Kahungungu) and Ribz believe they have what it takes to unlock success! Hailing from the capital, print technician Ribz is the self-described builder of the pair, while caterer Lisa excels on the decorating and shopping front.

Although how they met remains a ‘long story’, the husband and wife duo are passionate about their friends, family and positivity - priding themselves on their ability to stay fun. Often seen ‘ having a good laugh’, Ribz says he’s a no-regrets kind of guy whose strengths lie in his DIY skills, patience and hard-working attitude.

What Lisa lacks in building expertise, she makes up for in honesty and speaking her mind. Described by Ribz as stylish and sassy, Lisa feels at home in a boxing gym and brings her strengths of organisation and design to the team.

Lisa and Ribz are the keystone of a busy three children and one dog family, and they admit being away from them will be a challenge. The couple have spent 10 years honing their skills, renovating and decorating their own home to perfection, and although most teams have their favourites, these two are looking forward to renovating every single room on The Block NZ.
