Finally he fulfilled his duties which was to look after his Rose, who was the New Zealand Rose Ailbhe Ryan, to Accompany her to the Gala Rose Ball and to the Rose Parades.

After winning he had this to say “It’s been a very humbling experience and I think the only one happier than me right now is my Mummy and I’m sure there’ll be tears as well. There’s 31 other guys that I would put forward just as quickly. I’m very surprised to be here and I really didn’t expect it.”
