Aaron Seeto and Karly Fisher reveal their surprising prize money plans after winning

In an emotional Grand Finale, Aaron and Karly were announced the winners of Beauty and the Geek 2022.

It came after their journey together on the hit series saw them grow, both as individuals and as a pair. But surprisingly in an interview with 9Entertainment, they revealed that they weren’t quite expecting to take the crown.

“I was just grateful and in shock,” Karly said. “I remember looking at Aaron and thinking, ‘We did it. We actually did it.’ I just remember giving him a big hug and a big cuddle. I was so proud of him in that moment.”

Aaron told 9Entertainment that when the news was announced he “felt a feeling of happiness, relief and excitement.”

But the Geek also had an understanding of why he’d won, revealing just how Karly had helped him throughout his experience on the show.

“I’ve come into this shy and awkward as anything, not being able to talk to the Beauties without going bright red,” he said. “Karly has just calmed me down so much, she helped me get out of my comfort zone.

“She’s pushed me to be a better version of me and encouraged me to be my best, and a really good support. We work together so well as a team that shows that we were a really good pairing.”

Karly too was able to learn from Aaron. The Beauty explained that she often worried if her personality was going to be “a bit too much” for people.

But the way Aaron accepted her wholeheartedly confirmed to the Beauty that she had nothing to worry about.

“Aaron just accepted me for exactly who I was,” she said. “He just let me be me. He never made me feel like I was being too much. He’s also helped me realize that I am a good person.

“He makes me feel loved and appreciated because I haven’t always had that.”

Aaron and Karly acknowledged that the win wouldn’t have come easy, praising their fellow finalists Christopher and Bri, and Anthony and Tegan.

As winners, together they take home $100,000 in prize money, and both Karly and Aaron revealed what they plan to do with the cash.

“I’m planning to use the prize money to go towards dental work, so that’s mostly what it’s going to go to. I’m planning to get proper implants,” Aaron revealed.

The news comes after the Geek revealed that he currently wears falsies after he lost his two front teeth in a tragic hockey accident during high school.

“Whatever is left over is going to be used to fly around to go and see everyone. Just because the show might be over doesn’t mean the friendships are,” Aaron added.

Karly also has plans for the prize money, and intends to use it as a house deposit for her first home. Like Aaron, she is also eyeing a bit of travel.

“I would love to be able to take my family on a little holiday, especially my mum,” she said.

Following their time on the show both Karly and Aaron plan to go back to their regular day jobs, but they’re both open to opportunities that come their way.
