The Block’s Josh think this couple could be the dark horse on auction day

Contestant Josh reveals who he thinks might be the surprise winner of this season of The Block.

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.
And it might surprise you to learn it’s not their best mates Sticks and Wombat that he thinks could win the season, but Melbourne couple Jason and Sarah.
“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 thinks that married couple Jason and Sarah could take out the competition.
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 thinks he and Elyse will do well in the end, but will they win it?
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.”
Ronnie and Georgia won't be happy if Jason and Sarah are crowned winners of The Block.
