With only weeks to go until The Block auctions, there’s been plenty of speculation about who might be the eventual winner.
Melbourne contestant Josh is quietly confident that he and his girlfriend Elyse will do well with their luxury home, but he also has his eye on another couple.
“Their house has really come up to scratch and they’ve had some great feedback,” Josh, 28, says.
“It will be interesting to see how it goes come auction day, but I think they could be the smokeys [dark horse] on auction day.”
Josh explains that he thinks plumber Jason and nurse Sarah could have the winning edge as they’ve now finessed their rooms.
“Unfortunately they didn’t have youth on their side throughout the competition,” he says.
“So they wouldn’t necessarily finish their room in the week, but they would get it done on that Monday or the week after.”
Josh added with a laugh that fellow contestants Ronnie and Georgia might not be happy if Jason and Sarah ended up out-performing them come auction day.
“Ronnie would put them both down due to the fact they hadn’t won weeks,” Josh says.
“But I actually think they’re the smokeys of the competition so Ronnie might have to eat his words come auction day.”
