Sydney couple Gemma and Raf were named the winners of Nine’s Australia’s Perfect Couple last night beating their competition, same sex couple Robbie and Dan.
The two were voted winners by their fellow contestants in Survivor-jury style.
They won $210,000 cash and a holiday for their efforts, while the remaining participants won a handycam, MP3 player and camera.
The 24yo model and Brazilian chef married after eight months and said if they won the series they plan to open a restaurant.
The series was a disappointment for Nine, bombing in the ratings and being edited from 1hr to just 30 minutes for its final episodes.
The final episode included a bizarre challenge with couples rolling down the hill in a giant plastic ball. Even host Jules Lund described as “the weirdest challenge that made no sense but was funny to watch.” Te finale also couldn’t resist one last ‘bitchy’ moment when a former contestant blasted other couples for supposedly lying to them.
The $210,000 is a whopping prize by current Australian standards. MasterChef gave away a ‘paltry’ $100,000 to its winner Julie Goodwin, yet 3.7m Aussies tuned in for that one.
