Lachlan, Australia’s favourite Geek, and Kiera, his gorgeous Beauty, were crowned winners of Beauty and the Geek tonight, walking away with $100,000.
Lachlan said: “To be crowned the 2021 Beauty and the Geek champion is just an unbelievable feeling. As a motorsport commentator, I have witnessed the outpouring of jubilation from drivers who have won major events, but now I know what it’s like to experience that sort of feeling myself – and it’s awesome.
“I feel so lucky to have been partnered with Kiera. She knew how to make me feel special and loved. We rode the emotional rollercoaster through laughter, tears and everything in between. I may not have found the romantic love of my life on the show, but I leave with a renewed sense of self-appreciation, confidence and understanding of how I deserve to be treated by girls.”
Kiera said: “I wanted to go on the show to find love, and that’s exactly what I got. I found my partner, my confidante, and my number one fan in Lachlan. He made me feel confident, resilient, and like I deserved to be there. I’ll forever be in his debt. I learnt so much about who I am and the person I want to be. Who knew ten Geeks and nine other Beauties would come into my life and completely change it for the better?”
Lachlan and Kiera were paired together by host Sophie Monk in episode three, after being coupled with other Geeks and Beauties, and their deep bond was instant. They brought out the best in each other, building each other up as they came to realise what they deserve in a relationship.
Together they conquered their fears and endured the intense challenges the competition threw up, winning three and confirming a place in the last “Magic Mike Live” challenge.
The final decision came down to the eliminated Beauties and Geeks, who had watched Kiera and Lachlan’s unwavering belief in each other, genuine connection, and mutual growth. It became clear that they were the deserving winners of Beauty and the Geek 2021.
Host Sophie Monk said: “What an incredible show this has been! I’m beyond happy for Lachlan and Kiera, who are honestly the most genuine and deserving winners. There’s not a bad bone in either of them. They are such a gorgeous, sweet pair, with the most adorable and special connection.
“Seeing two different walks of life come together and support each other in such a loving way has been amazing to watch. I’ve felt so proud to be a part of this experience. All of the beauties and geeks were an absolute pleasure to watch”.
