On the same day as the USA presidential election, another vote was going down - on Australia's mostp opular mainstream TV show - and the verdict was clear for openly gay housemate, Benjamin.
Walking away with the first prize of a quarter of a million dollars, after a whopping three month stint in the house, he took the entire country by surprise by getting down on one knee and proposing to his boyfriend on National television.
His partner, also named Benjamin, accepted enthusiastically - and Australia has gone wild over the romantic request.
A big congratulations to both Benjamins! Let's hope the Australian Government moves forward and allows marriage equality, which although majoritivly popular with the Australian public, continues to be denied by the countries lawmakers.
