Josh and Elyse and Ronnie and Georgia confess why they don't like each other

The couples get candid.

By Kietley Isrin and Erin Miller
They’re the best two teams in the competition. So it comes as no surprise that the rivalry between Josh and Elyse and fellow blockheads Ronnie and Georgia is rife on The Block.
Chatting to TV WEEK, carpenter Josh admits while he would love to come out on top at the final auction, beating Ronnie and Georgia is his goal for now.
“The whole competition has been between us and them so you just have to set the bar high to beat them,” the 28-year-old says.
“They’ve definitely got a competitive side and they’ve made it quite clear to everyone a few times that they’re not here to make friends and they are here to win.
“I get that it’s a competition and that they’re entitled to be like that, but I personally think there’s a lot more than $100,000 on the line.
“My reputation is worth more than $100,000 and the way the public perceived me and I think that will shine through. He (Ronnie) is going to shoot himself in the foot.”
Josh’s girlfriend Elyse couldn’t agree more saying she and Josh have a completely different work ethic to their rivals.
“Georgia and Ronnie seem to finish a day early every time whereas Josh and I make the most of every minute,” Elyse, 24, says.
Meanwhile, kids clothing designer, Georgia has had enough.
“Can I be honest, the first couple of weeks it started to get to me but now it’s getting further into the renovation you realise what it’s all about and what’s important and the drama doesn’t bother me anymore,” she says.
Ronnie adds: “In the real world, I don’t think I’d have anything in common with those guys. Josh is 20 something and Elyse is a model. I wouldn’t be hanging out with a model or a surfer. I’m 41-years-old.”
But Georgia can’t help but have the last word.
“I don’t think it’s got anything to do with them being models of surfers. The difference is maturity and life experience,” Georgia continues.
“I think having young children you realise what’s important and that perhaps our motivation for being on the show is different in that regard.”
