The winners of Australia’s Beauty and the Geek competition have been announced, with $100,000 going to Aaron, Australia’s cutest train driver geek, and his lovely and generous beauty, Karly.

Aaron and Karly hit it off right away, with Karly referring to Aaron as “her geek” during host Sophie Monk’s interrogation in episode one.

They were paired from the beginning and never left each other’s side throughout the journey, always cheering each other on, opening up to each other, and building their inner confidence.

Aaron said:

“I couldn’t have done it without the support of the other beauties and geeks who now have become lifelong friends and most certainly couldn’t have done it without Karly. Not many words can probably ever describe the feeling that I am experiencing.

Karly has been an incredible partner throughout this journey. She has given me so much help and advice that I will never forget, and she has helped me so much with my confidence and belief in myself.

I didn’t know a single person when we first arrived, but thanks to this experience and all of the memories we made together,

I now have 19 new lifelong friends. Each of you has helped me in your own unique way, and I will be eternally grateful.”

They overcame fears, broke down emotional barriers, and formed a strong bond while also becoming stronger as individuals.

Their peers and friends, who have watched them grow together and bring out the best in each other, made the final decision tonight. Karly and Aaron were unanimously chosen as the most deserving winners of Beauty and the Geek 2022.

Karly said:

“My heart is so full, I didn’t even realise it hadn’t felt like this before. I’m so shocked, thrilled and excited to have won and so grateful to have been paired with Aaron through this all.

I recognised Aaron right away, and after hearing his story, I knew we’d be great together. It’s incredible to see him come out of his shell and how much his confidence has grown. I’m extremely proud of him.

The friendships I’ve formed on this journey will last a lifetime, and I am eternally grateful to each of them for their support.”

Sophie Monk added:

“What an incredible, heartwarming and entertaining journey this has been. I’m so ridiculously excited for Aaron and Karly, who are the most gorgeous and caring pair and such deserving winners.

“They had a very special connection right from the beginning and it’s been wonderful watching them grow from this experience and have each other’s backs.

“Seeing two different worlds come together and bring out the best in each other is so gorgeous. All of the beauties and geeks have been incredible to watch and I feel like they’re all winners.”

Endemol Shine Australia produced Beauty and the Geek for Channel 9.
