The Bachelorette Winner Lee Elliott to Appear as a Tradie on The Block
Not only did Lee Elliott win Georgia Love’s heart on the Bachelorette last year, but now he’s scored a gig on Channel Nine’s The Block for 2017.
The hunky reality star will show off his plumbing skills on the popular renovation reality show which premiered its 13th season last night, hosted by TV WEEK Gold Logie-winner Scott Cam.
The 35-year-old mechanical plumber from Melbourne will join the long-suffering tradesmen crew who are contracted to make all the contestant’s visions become reality.
Hopefully we’ll be treated to a hot tradie montage or two during the course of the series.
Channel Nine also confirmed that fitness guru and star of The Bachelor season three Sam Wood is heading to the renovation show.
Wood, who announced he was expecting his first child with fiance Snezana Markoski in May, will appear on The Block to train Elyse Knowles, one of the show’s celeb contestants.
It certainly seems like Channel Nine are tapping into the right stuff here. They know how much we love our reno shows, and by throwing in a couple of Bachie hunks they are clearly on to a winner.
If only they could get a contract with KMart homewares and some sort of wine delivery service they’d have us completely hooked!
