Sarah and Lachlan are the winners of Beauty and the Geek Australia 2011! The pair beat Jordan and Julian after answering the most questions correctly in a Q&A where the Beauties and Geeks were tested on how much they knew about their partners.

Sarah said Lachlan was 175cm (he’s 180cm) and Jordan said Julian was 151cm (he’s 163cm), so as a result, Sarah and Lachlan were awarded the title, as well as a $100,000 cash prize!

The grand final was a fun and amusing episode as always, and started with four couples. The Beauties and Geeks went “back to school” in a series of challenges to decide the final two couples. Mackenzie and Jimmy were eliminated first after being tested on science, home economics and physical education, while Jacelle and Gilbert were out of the running after the “school formal,” where guests voted on the chemistry and relationship between the couples after a kissing booth and dance battle challenge. Before the final Q&A showdown, Sarah, Lachlan, Jordan and Julian “graduated” in front of the former contestants, and Beauties Mackenzie and Troy confirmed the show’s worst-kept secret: that they’re engaged. And on top of taking home $50,000, Lachlan sweetly said that the greatest thing he got out of the competition was a girlfriend in Jordan, as well as his friendship with Sarah.
