In a finale like no other, The Block ended on Sunday night with a series first: a celebrity buyer. Josh and Elyse’s stunning property was bought by Melbourne-based radio host and comedian Dave Hughes.
“I don’t live too far away and I was driving past and I was thinking, “gee it is a good spot, it is a good house, it is a good area,” he said.
“And now we own it.” Hughes bought the property for $3,067,000, meaning 28-year-old Josh and 24-year-old Elyse pocketed $447,000. They described the moment as “life changing”.
