Block star Elyse Knowles goes from reno to raunch
This is Block Star Elyse Knowles as you have never seen her before.
Fresh off the construction site, Knowles has fronted Bras’n’Things newest campaign in a series of steamy shots wearing a raunchy range of leather and lace clad garments.
A model and social influencers prior to her stint on reality TV, Knowles said she felt exposing her down to earth and often uncensored self on the show has the ability to open many doors.
“I hope that it will open doors for me ... I feel like it has exposed me to a totally new market,” Knowles said.
“I decided that I wanted to be myself, that crazy confident girl. And if people saw the show and didn’t want to work with me, then I don’t want to work with them.”
Knowles said she has been shocked by the reaction to her role on the show from many mothers.
“So many mums have come up to me and thanked me for being so real on the show, and showing girls that they don’t have to fit a mould,” she said.
“I love to show girls that anything guys can do, we can do too.”
The Victorian said shooting for Bras’n’Things was a big shift from the TV show.
“It was very different to the work which I had been doing on The Block, but when you get the call up it is an honour,” she said.
“It was a pretty sexy shoot, and I wasn’t feeling that comfortable as I had only been training once a week while I was on the show.”
Knowles and partner Josh Barker have been a drawcard on this season of The Block which has been dominating in the ratings.
This Sunday’s finale will prove if all of the effort has been worth while for the well-liked couple.
“I am pretty nervous, there have been lots of potential buyers and positive interest, we are just hoping they come through and buy our place at auction,” the reality star said. FULL ARTICLE HERE
