Hughesy Admits That He Would Have Paid More For The Block
The Block finale last night saw Josh and Elyse take out the number one spot, walking away with a whopping $547,000.
As we reported last night, the bidder to secure the gorgeous property, was 973FM’s very own David “Hughesy” Hughes.
Bianca, Terry and Bob spoke to the proud new house owner on their show this morning.
“I’m suffering from Post-traumatic stress disorder,” Hughesy told the co-hosts. “I’m having flashbacks. It was pretty random actually.”
Later on, he did admit that it was in fact, not actually that random, saying: “It was a very considered purchase. It’s long term.”
“I’d taken my wife through it earlier in the week and we loved that house. She wasn’t there at the auction. But I was in the room, I was standing just out of camera shot.”
“I thought it was going to go for more than that to be honest,” he said. “When you give your guy a limit and you haven’t got to that limit, you’re pretty much going to buy the house.”
Terry joked with Hughesy that he should have waited a few more minutes to pay a lot less, however, Hughesy was sure he’d made the right call.
“The bookends were the best,” he said. “I reckon the ones in the middle got stitched up with their reserves.”
So what are Hughesy and his family going to do with their new property?
“We’re tossing it up,” he said.
We’re looking for a new place, Hughesy….
