WINNING SMILES: Siblings Ben and Libby Crawford have won The Block NZ, taking home $237,000.

Former Edendale brother and sister Ben and Libby Crawford tonight won The Block NZ, earning them an extra $80,000 after making a profit of $157,000 for selling their house for $961,000 on the programme’s live auction show on TV3.

During the live auction the pair looked visibly nervous and both close to tears as the bidding heated up.

After learning of their win on TV3’s live auction show tonight Libby said it was "absolutely incredible".

Auckland-based Ben Crawford grew up on the family farm at Edendale with his Christchurch-based sister Libby.
