Beauty And The Geek is probably one of the most wholesome shows on Aussie TV, but what happens to the cast after filming wraps? We’re catching up with the 2021 beauies and geeks to see where they are today.

WATCH: BATG’s Lachlan & Keira on the 2022 TV WEEK Logie Awards Red Carpet

In case you missed it, Lachlan Mansell and Kiera Johnstone won the 2021 season and multiple couples walked away from the show with romantic connections.

Sadly most of the romances didn’t last, but that’s not always a bad thing, as Lachy revealed going on the show had a huge impact on the geeks’ love lives.

“I have been inundated, I’ve got lots of girls sliding into my DMs. I’ve been on quite a few dates which has been really good, so just having fun,” he told us at the TV WEEK Logie Awards.

So what are they and the other fan-favourite contestants up to today? And more importantly, did the geeks stick to their makeovers? Keep scrolling to find out.

Lachlan Mansell

Lachy has made some big moves since winning the 2021 season, from nabbing a job on the Kyle and Jackie O radio show, to going on plenty of dates and keeping up his motosports commentating.

Celebrating how his life had changed since the show, Lachy wrote on Instagram: “What was initially a very temporary appearance off the back of my @batg exploits has turned into a much longer-term role, and something that certainly wasn’t on my radar at the start of 2021.

“As well as being an amazing professional opportunity, it’s also contributed to the (very positive) transformation of my social life. Thanks guys!”

Kiera Johnstone

After taking out the win in 2021, Kiera’s life just got better – she nabbed herself a boyfriend shortly after filming wrapped and has been looking happier than ever on Instagram.

She told TV WEEK in June: “I’ve got a boyfriend now, I met him right before the show aired!” 

She and Lachy have remained close, even attending the 2022 TV WEEK Logie Awards together, and she’s still got plenty of friendships from the show.

Cosplay fanatic James is still dressing up as his favourite pop culture characters these days, but he also gets dressed up for fancy media events too.

He was recenty spotted at the TV WEEK Logie Awards afterparties and a few red carpets, so he seems to be doing quite well for himself.

Though he split from Jess after the show aired, we’re sure he has plenty of dates lined up these days – just look how dapper he is!

This journalist-turned-influencer still puts her degree to good use reporting for the Hit Network over at Triple M Cairns, but you’re more likely to spot her promoting cute Seafolly bikinis like this one on Instagram.
