Josh Packham reveals why he and twin brother Luke will NEVER do another reality TV show after appearing on The Block and Love Island


They became stars after appearing on Love Island before coming second on the latest season of The Block.

But Josh Packham has revealed in an Instagram Q and A on Thursday that it will mostly likely be the last time he and twin brother Luke will appear on a reality show.

‘Look that’s a tough question,’ the 27-year-old said in response to a question about whether the twins would be back on the TV screens.

‘It’s kind of hard looking at anything else after doing The Block. The Block’s as big as it gets in Australia.’

Josh explained that a TV offer from a reality show would really have to be ‘worth’ the twins’ time for them to even consider it.

‘It’d have to be worth our time because right now we want to focus on getting the business up and running,’ he added.

The new ‘business’ is what Josh and Luke are putting their prize money towards after coming runners-up on The Block finale last Sunday.  

The twins walked away with a profit of $530,000 after selling their property for a whopping $3.93million.

Luke confirmed the twins will combine their funds and create a business to distribute synthetic grass products across Australia.  

‘We’re not going to split the money; we’re going to keep it together,’ Luke told Daily Mail Australia on Monday.

‘I’ve been in the synthetic grass industry for nearly ten years, so I’m going to set up another business for… not the installation side of the business, but for the distribution. 

‘I’ve got a few synthetic grass products that I want to distribute around Australia, so we’re going to use that money to bring it in from Europe and see how we go.’

Luke added of their second-place finish: ‘We were blown away. You never know what’s going to happen on auction day. You only can do your best and sit there and hope, so that’s what we did.

‘We had a target of $100,000 to help us move forward, so to come out with over $500,000 just blew us away.’

Celebration: Luke said of their second-place finish, 'We were blown away. You never know what's going to happen on auction day. You only can do your best and sit there and hope, so that's what we did'
