While acknowledging that Josh likely amped up a lot of his assholery for television, he also strikes me as the classic bully who turns into a mouse as soon as the target shows signs they'll fight back. It could be a trick of editing, but it seemed like he started getting along with Bert and Viktor after the latter two called him on his shit. He also never dared to go after Kimberly or Julie when they were on teams together.
There's a great Designer Dish clip from the end of the HP challenge episode - the challenge where Josh went on his little WILL NOT HAVE IT rant. Josh's team has been declared the losers and sent backstage while Heidi & Co. talk to the winning team. Josh is sitting there sulking, and Kimberly says, very calmly but also halfway taunting him: "Suddenly you're really quiet, Josh. What's wrong? Now you've got nothing to say?"
