When Elyse Knowles was announced as a contestant on this season of The Block, rather than thinking, "A model on The Block? She's going to struggle," we thought, "OMG yes! She's going to slay." Because Elyse is no renovation rookie.
The model bought her own fixer-upper a few years ago — a beach house near Barwon Heads, VIC — and has been very hands-on with the renovations. Between a hectic schedule of photoshoots and ambassador duties, Elyse and her boyfriend Josh (who's her Block partner), could be found, mainly on her Snapchat, digging holes and laying bricks.
Elyse has shared some of those moments on her Instagram, and they really are proof that her great attitude and sense of humour are going to make her awesome to watch on the Block.
