The Block winner Elyse Knowles goes “skurfing” in Eildon

But it turns out Elyse Knowles, 25, still has a few hidden tricks up her sleeve.

The past year has been full of milestones for the stunning blonde, who recently reflected on the past 12 months – and the sheer amount of full-on experiences she’s had.

Posting to her self-titled blog on Monday, The Block star wrote a list of hers highs and learning points of the year, explaining:  ‘Every experience we have contributes to the person we become. We learn from our mistakes and we grow with our achievements.’

 After winning the latest season of The Block alongside her boyfriend Josh Barker, it was no surprise the victory was included on Elyse’s list.

Also making the cut were Elyse’s modelling career highlights, including gracing the cover of Women’s Health and shooting for Seafolly.

But the blonde beauty also admitted that body image was a huge challenge for her in 2017, as she added it to her ‘learning experiences’ list.

 ‘I work very hard on keeping my body at a certain level. I have learnt to be more content with myself and what my body looks like,’ she explained.

‘People tend to assume ‘models’ are born with perfect bodies and fast metabolisms. Nope! It takes work, time, patience and a very positive attitude to not only get in shape, but to stay in shape (the key!)’
