Benjamin Norris, Australia's 'Big Brother' Winner, Proposes To Boyfriend

Posted: Updated:

As if being a reality show champion wasn't enough, Australia's "Big Brother" winner Benjamin Norris surprised his longtime boyfriend by popping the question.

In true old fashioned tradition, the 32-year-old Norris got down on one knee and proposed to his boyfriend, also named Ben, with an heirloom ring.

“This was a diamond that my great grandfather bought for my great grandmother and it was worn by my parents on their wedding day so it’s something that is a part of my family,” Norris gushed. “Since I’ve met Ben all I have wanted is for him to be a part of my family."

Norris, an accounts manager from Victoria, is the first openly gay winner of the show.
