Lachlan and Sarah’s close bond on Beauty and the Geek was the key to their big win on the show’s series finale last night. They were up against Julian and Jordan in the last Q&A round, in which the Beauties and Geeks were tested on their knowledge about their partners. We chatted to the cute pair about how they celebrated, what they’re planning to do with their $100,000 cash prize, how they’ve changed, and how Lachlan is going to make things work long distance with girlfriend Jordan.
How did you guys celebrate?
Sarah: I had some of the Geeks that were able to come from Sydney at my house last night, so we all watched it together. And Lachlan and I had an early night because we had a big day today.
Lachlan: I was at Sarah’s place. We got to bed early because it’s been quite a hectic period. We’ve known for three months that we won, so it was a lot more exciting for family and friends who didn’t know. They probably celebrated harder than we did.
How did you manage to keep it a secret for so long?
Sarah: Not sure [laughs]. I usually can’t keep my mouth shut, so with this I was very proud of myself that I didn’t tell friends. I’ve lied to quite a few people.
Lachlan: I didn’t have any issues at all. We were contractually obliged not to tell anyone, so that’s what I did, I honoured the contract.
