Instant Hotel is back for a second season, with more homeowners out to transform their properties into dreamy holiday destinations all with a chance of winning a massive $100,000 prize.

All episodes of the new Australian series landed on Netflix on Friday, June 28th and has already proven to fans its way better than the first!

With amazing new destinations such as Coober Pedy and tropical Queensland, a new host and a brilliant cast, it’s not hard to understand why.

So let’s take a look at the season 2 cast and see where they’re at with their Instant Hotels now!

Razz and Mark

This engaged couple are the first contestants to have their hotel featured on the show.

They are from Coober Pedy, South Australia whose scorched red desert is the home to iconic films such as Mad Max and Pricilla Queen of the Desert.

Mark (53) is an opal miner who has owned the property for over three decades. He makes the experience memorable by taking the other contestants opal mining and showing them the incredible beauty of the Australian outback.

If this couple was your fave and you want to keep up to date with them, you can follow Razz on Instagram @razzjones.

Jay and Leah

The other contestants were worried about Leah Johnsen and Jay Bruno when they found out they had only been a couple for just over three months when they signed up to the program.

Despite their wishes to win the show, start the hotel and build a foundation for a life together, things don’t seem to have worked out for the couple.

As they no longer follow each other on Instagram, it would seem that things took a turn for the worse after the show. Their last picture together was posted on Valentine’s Day 2019.

You can follow model Leah on Instagram @leahjay_ where she already has a following of over 40k. And also follow personal trainer and musician Jay @bayjruno.

Debbie and Justin

Debbie (57) and Justin (27) are a mother-son duo hailing from the Sunshine Coast of Australia.

They were trying to turn their beach penthouse into an ideal getaway and boy, did they!

Justin now works as a Marketing Consultant for Finns Recreation and Beach Club in Bali and seems to be living the dream, leaving mum Debbie to continue working on the hotel with her husband (who is not featured on the show).

Justin still hangs out with fellow Instant Hotel competitor Leah as you can see on his Instagram page!

Debbie also has an Instagram – @deb_instant_hotel02 – where she keeps fans up to date with the penthouse’s progress and takes bookings.

Gene and Sharon

These two might be the most memorable contestants Instant Hotel has ever seen…

Music mogul Gene Salvestrin (72) and his wife, TV presenter and marriage celebrant Sharon (44) were the most hilarious on season 2, with their specific tastes never being compromised.

Remember the bidet drama in episode 1? How could we ever forget…

Their stunning property bordering the Misty Mountains rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef was one of the most amazing of all locations. Check out the Misty Mountain Rainforest Retreat’s website here to see all the property has to offer.

If you want to keep up with this hilarious duo, you can follow Gene on Instagram @kinggenesalvestrin and Sharon @sharonsalvestrin. Expect lots of couple pics of these two living the glamorous highlife!
