LEGO MASTERS returns on Thursday, September 28, with its biggest season ever, as teams of two try to outlast the other groups to win $100,000 and the title LEGO Masters.

“We always try to think of each season and how it could possibly top the last,” Brickmaster Jamie Berard tells Give Me My Remote in the video below. “But I think the builders this season have been watching and doing their homework on the previous seasons…I would say this season is really a standout—that there are particularly some challenges that have outcomes or ambitions like we’ve never seen before on any LEGO MASTERS.”

“I’ve seen a lot of things over the years, but this season truly gave me jaw-dropping moments,” he continues. “[Fellow Brickmaster] Amy [Corbett] and I, [host/executive producer] Will [Arnett], we were just standing there [in] the room like I have no idea how this is happening right now, but it is awesome.”

This season also marks an incredible first for the show: The winners will have their build made into a real, purchasable LEGO set.

“It is the biggest deal,” Berard says. The contestants are initially left in the dark about the new prize—which meant the Brickmasters and Arnett had to keep it a secret. “We knew we had something special that they were gonna go crazy for. And then, sure enough, once we revealed that that was happening, it was mind-blowing. Like, people were just in disbelief, because it is such a rare treat to be able to be immortalized. Your LEGO model translated into a set that people can build at home? It’s like every LEGO fan’s dream.”

But to get the chance, they’ll have to make it through the season. In the season premiere, the contestants have to build a ship—that can sail.

“We’re introducing our builders to the world with a boat challenge,” Berard previews. “And that is just wonderful, because it’s this environment…where they don’t build on a stable table. So much is having to worry about that ship twisting back and forth; they have to be able to actually float it and pilot it around the lake. And it is wonderfully chaotic to see just what happens when you see these beautiful models and put them in the water and then see what happens.”

It’s moments like that that keep even the most prepared competitors—who may have seen every moment of the show so far—on their toes.

“We have such crazy challenges that, even with the best of preparation, I think we’re always throwing people off just enough to get the unexpected to come out,” Berard says. “I think the builders are very savvy, they know that we will have some challenges that will have strength elements. They know we have challenges that have storytelling, and they want to show off extreme creativity. So I think they kind of get that foundation in place. But then what they do with it with each challenge is where the real wildcard is.”

“That’s where even with the best of preparations, people really have no idea what’s coming,” he continues. “And the best day is the day that the builders are like, ‘No way, we had no idea this was coming!’ And then they’re just so excited because it’s just so fresh.”

Also ahead? “We’ve also got Cirque du Soleil coming,” Berard teases. “We have a 2K Games challenge. We talk about actually having your set immortalized—we also have a digital version of that, where our contestants are going to actually make remote control vehicles that then get digitized and added into a game, which is amazing. So it’s like a series of first: things that we’ve never done before. That is super motivating for all the builders.”
