The Block 'quitter' Elle Ferguson works with Kim Kardashian's shapewear brand Skims


Elle Ferguson has cut a lucrative new deal just days after she was brutally sledged by Scott Cam for quitting The Block after just two days on the building site. 

As reported by Emerald City, the influencer, 36, is officially working with Kim Kardashian to promote the American reality star’s shapewear brand Skims. 

Elle is the only Australia celebrity to partner with the brand, and has modelled pieces from the latest Skims range in a photoshoot on Instagram.

‘Kim to me is a constant inspiration. She proves you can do it all,’ Elle told Emerald City on Sunday.  

‘I remember not so long ago there was a presumption that if you were modelling the underwear that’s all you could do, but now you can wear the underwear and also run the business,’ she said. 

It comes days after Scott Cam defended his claim that Elle and Joel were ‘unAustralian’ for quitting The Block.

Elle and Joel downed tools in April – just 48 hours into production – after his mother suffered a nasty fall at home in Adelaide. 

‘Obviously I wish Joel and Elle success in the future. It’s just that they created a fair bit of chaos for us here in the first 48 hours,’ Scott said on Friday during a media event in country Victoria.  

‘The show… we put a lot of time and money into the start of our show and then we had to rejig the whole thing… the whole promos had to be re-shot,’ he explained.

‘It was just a lot of angst on our part when they just parted the way they did.’

Scott said ‘the great news’ is that they ‘got another couple to come and they’re terrific’. 

At Sunday night’s Logie Awards, Scott slammed the couple’s decision to leave the show because of a family emergency as ‘unAustralian’ and ‘p**s poor’.

Scott had told TV Tonight on the Logies red carpet: ‘We had a 48-hour challenge to choose the house that you get and they scarpered after 48 hours.

‘It’s something that’s never happened before.

‘Forty-five thousand people applied to be on The Block and win life-changing money. These guys got on and they just couldn’t handle the pace after 48 hours.

‘Which to me is a bit unAustralian! Have a go! It’s p**s poor.’

The couple made the difficult decision to leave the Channel Nine renovation show in April after Joel’s mum Trish fractured her neck during a fall at her home in Adelaide.

The former AFL star’s mother reportedly broke her coccyx and fractured her wrist.

After their exit, Elle shared a photo to Instagram of the pair’s suitcases at Melbourne Airport, and captioned it: ‘Wherever you are in the world, whatever you are doing, family always comes first.’

A Nine spokesperson confirmed their departure to Daily Mail Australia, saying: ‘Over the weekend, we were surprised to have one of our new contestant teams depart The Block a few days into filming for the upcoming season.

‘We wish them all the best for the future and we’re excited to cast two new Aussies for the opportunity of a lifetime on The Block. The Block Tree Change will air as scheduled later this year.’
