Elyse and Josh were the fresh-faced duo who managed to take out the coveted title of The Block champions. Now, the reality star has made a shocking confession about her time on the show.

Speaking to BW Magazine, the 25-year-old model claims there were times during the shows filming where she thought the couple would not make it to the end. 

She told the publication, ‘It was gnarly and every week got harder and harder.’

‘We didn’t know how we’d get through it because they kept putting challenges on us,’ she added. 

The model further claims the series was more about mental toughness than it was about physical toughness. 

The model further said, ‘We wanted them to know we couldn’t be broken. They’d try to mentally break you down, but if you had a positive mind you’d be OK.’
