(WHTM) — A Lancaster native competing on the television show “Lego Masters” was eliminated on Wednesday night’s episode after a build malfunction, according to abc27 media partner LNP/LancasterOnline.
According to abc27 media partner LNP/LancasterOnline, Dominic Forte, who currently resides in Lancaster and works for the Lego store Brick Heads on Lititz Pike, has a TikTok presence with more than 300,000 followers. According to LNP, Forte caught the attention of show producers with his TikTok account. Forte’s TikTok success really took off during the COVID-19 pandemic, when he had time to truly focus on his hobby of Lego building.
Forte and his partner, Ethan Dungan, were brought onto the show “Lego Masters” as a wild-card pair. On the first episode they were introduced to the competition, they built a treehouse that the judges loved.
On Wednesday night’s episode, teams were asked to build a functioning, creative mini golf hole. Forte and Dungan created “Jungle Temple Adventure” using a conveyor belt and motor. The team faced a problem when a malfunction occurred in the second part of the course. Judge Will Arnett was not able to efficiently score their build, leading to their elimination.
“It’s clear your talent is incredible,” said Jamie Berard, set designer for the Lego Group and “Lego Master” judge alongside Amy Corbett, on the episode. “I can see why you guys would have millions of people that want to enjoy everything you’re doing.”
