The year-old Harvard student and front man for the Star Wars tribute band So Long Princess connected with all of his housemates, not just his showmance partner Jennylee. And he wowed everyone with his nice-guy ways in the season finale, when he talked all his cast mates into giving the show’s prize to Scooter and Megan, rather than rewarding his partner Cecille for her selfish ways.

Yep, you have to cast your mind all the way back to for a nostalgic hit of nerds and models awkwardly living under the same roof. We are clueless as to why the world of reality TV has not followed up with a hilarious, entertaining and quirky show that had an awesome USP.

She told National Features : “We are still together, and he’s in Sydney with me right now, in my house. It’s awesome. When I first met him he came across as being so conservative, and he was always talking about how his parents were quite strict, so for him to get a tattoo was way out of his comfort zone.
However, Cosgrove admitted that he has now added a second tattoo of the Beauty and the Geek logo, adding: “The tattoo [then] became more about my and Sarah’s time on the show.

After all footage of my mum was bizzarely removed from last nights episode, I would just like to take the time to thank her for being such a supportive mother, always being there for me through thick and thin.
