‘Did half a million not buy him a haircut?’ The Block winner Josh Barker is trolled over his scruffy appearance as he joins stunning girlfriend Elyse Knowles at Derby Day

He’s the down-to-earth chippie who became $547,000 richer after winning The Block with girlfriend Elyse Knowles.

But it appears Josh Barker has yet to splash any cash on changing his scruffy appearance.

On Saturday, the 28-year-old took to Instagram to share a snap with his model girlfriend at Derby Day, but was mercilessly trolled by his followers over his laid-back look.

Did half a million not buy him a haircut?’ one follower commented beneath the couple photo
‘Go grab a haircut mate. Nothing wrong with being tidy. Your girl deserves it’ wrote another.

 A third fan of the reality TV couple wondered how scruffy Josh managed to woo blonde beauty Elyse.
‘He’s punching so hard’ the man wrote accompanied by two crying with laughter emojis.

However, many followers noticed that Josh and Elyse complemented each other and made a ‘hot couple’.

Wearing his shoulder length hair out and sporting a shaggy beard, Josh looked race day ready in a grey suit from MJ Bale.

He added a timeless black bow-tie and a pocket square, both from Buckle 1922 Accessories. Later in the day, the tradie was seen shielding his eyes from the sun with a large pair of shades.

It was a formal look for Josh, who infamously went without shoes for The Block’s auction day last weekend.

While stunning Elyse was done up to the nines as their renovated home went under the hammer, her chippie boyfriend hit headlines for choosing to go barefoot.

The couple have been dating for four years, and recently revealed they plan to invest in property with their substantial prize money from The Block.
