Social media influencer and model Elyse Knowles, along with partner and carpenter Josh Barker, sold the property they’d been working on for the duration of The Block to Australian comedian Dave Hughes.

Not only was the sale to the popular funny man, but it was for a whopping three million dollars.

It was all smiles for the three of them, with Hughsey accepting the beautiful home the two renovators had created, and the youngsters cashing in hard.

But in a recent interview with Stellar Magazine on Sunday, it seems Hughsey’s smile has faded since purchasing the property.

' Annoyed ': Dave Hughes has admitted he was ' annoyed ' after he found out that the million home he bought from Elyse Knowles and Josh Barker on The Block is not worth that much.

I don’t even remember how I found out about it — I think I was poking around the [Adult Swim] Dave Hughes : This could be a different answer almost every day. And you may have caught me on a strange day, because right now I’m really digging a song called “Baby” by a group called DakhaBrakha.

“I went to get a bank loan the other day and they haven’t valued it the same as I paid for it, which is fine, but annoying because there were five bidders,” Hughsey confessed in the interview.

While he didn’t say how much less the property was valued for, he said it was “enough less that it made me annoyed. For f**k’s sake… I just think it’s good value and in a few year’s time people are going to be going, ‘Well, f**k, didn’t he do well with it!’ I am playing the long game, all right? That is what I say to my wife anyway,'” he joked.

Dave Hughes on why he is qualified for his new show Hughesy, We Have a Problem

  Dave Hughes on why he is qualified for his new show Hughesy, We Have a Problem A decade after guest appearances on Rove Live and Thank God You're Here, Dave Hughes is getting his very own show for the first time. The Melbourne-based comedian and radio personality has made the leap from Nine's Footy Show to Network Ten, where he will front a new comedy show called Hughesy, We Have a Problem. The program will see the 47-year-old give advice on life's tricky – and occasionally sticky – problems with his signature larrikinism and the help of a slew of fellow comedians such as Kate Lanbroek, Merrick Watts and Judith Lucy.

It made me think of how I believe Mel Brooks said he partly wanted to get Richard Pryor to help write Blazing Trevor Noah pointed this out about me. It’s like, “Dummies, why would you not try to write for black people in comedy? To jump back to Half Baked — Dave had the initial pitch for the movie.

He doesn't give a shit about how kids email me all the time thanking me for keeping them from committing suicide. It 's not part of his capitalist business practice. I surround myself with amazing and talented people, people who have made it in every sense of those words.

Speaking to KIIS FM last year, his wife Holly expressed her scepticism that the property was a well thought out buy by Hughsey.

“It’s not a bargain,” she admitted while speaking on Hughsey’s drive show.

She also told listeners that the property purchase prompted not-so-nice encounters with other school kids for their eight-year-old son Rafferty, leaving the boy feeling like his dad was “showing off”.

Earlier in the week, Hughsey told Triple M’s Hot Breakfast the process of renting out the expensive property had been challenging, but he had finally found a tenant after some initial difficulty.

As for impulse purchases, this one by Hughsey certainly takes the cake.
