The Block’s Jess Eva jokes Karl Stefanovic ‘wouldn’t want to get his hands dirty’ on Gatwick site

Today hosts Karl Stefanovic and Georgie Gardner have been touted as Sara and Hayden’s replacement on The Block.

But it seems the dynamic duo won’t last long on the Gatwick worksite, if Wednesday’s episode of the renovation show is anything to go by.

In a bizarre segment on the show, the breakfast hosts met with contestants Jess Eva and Norm Hogan, with Jess saying she wouldn’t consider Karl as tough ‘competition.’

While at first the Jess was overjoyed to meet the TV hosts, she was quick to poke fun at Karl and his potential on the worksite. 

‘I reckon Karl wouldn’t like to get his hands dirty so I’d actually prefer him down there (in apartment three),’ she said.

‘I reckon they’d be less competition than Hayden and Sara, to be honest,’ she giggled.

‘Bring em’ in,’ Norm chimed in, ‘yeah bring em’ in,’ Jess laughed.

Karl and Georgie also paid a visited apartment three to see what work they would have to do.

As they threw around potential style ideas for the apartment, including a grey colour palette and a TV hanging from the ceiling, Scott was quick to remind them they were only on stand by.

‘Scotty we don’t do stand by,’ Karl insisted before jokingly walking off with his co-host.

Karl and Georgie’s appearance on The Block comes after controversial contestant Sara threatened to quit the show after judges panned her room for the third week in a row.

The Block continues on Sunday 7pm, on Channel Nine
