JOSH & ELYSE
Daily coffee count:
no coffees! (they’re health freaks)
Way to throw the picture-perfect couple in there, Channel Nine! Here we have a gun carpenter with loads of experience and a model with a huge social following and style to boot. Josh and Elyse are a killer duo, with great screen chemistry and are an early favourite from the get-go – think Kyal and Kara from Season 8. With their own gorgeous reno just recently finished, these two hit the first few weeks hard and give Ronnie and Georgia a good run for their money.
Josh’s skills, trade management and quality control with Elyse’s unique style see them stand out from the rest of the gang early on in the show. They bring a hint of architectural nuance to their build and with a strong start in the first few weeks, these two will be the powerhouse to beat and I can see them winning plenty of rooms further down the track. They’re the couple that you hate to love: young, fit, determined and full of life. Watch out!
