Beauty and the Geek’s Lachlan Mansell confirms if he’s lost his virginity yet – and reveals that he’s become MUCH more confident with women
He won Beauty and the Geek alongside his partner Keira Johnstone earlier this year.
And on Saturday, Lachlan Mansell revealed the real impact that being on the Channel Nine show has had on his personal life.
During an Instagram Q&A with fans, the 32-year-old admitted that he was still well and truly a virgin.

‘As I’ve made clear on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, I’m not in a rush to lose my virginity… I want it to be with the right person and I am prepared to wait for that special person,’ he said.
He followed up the honest admission with more details about his dating life after finding fame.
‘I’m just a lot more confident with it now, I’ve had a couple of really good dates so far…. girls have out a lot of effort in and they’re really genuine.
‘I am really relaxed about it and not putting pressure on it, so happy days,’ he added.

And it appears his confidence has peaked following the show as he recently asked KIIS FM radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson if she’d consider dating him.
In August, he filled in for KIIS FM producer and on-air personality ‘Intern Pete’ Deppeler while he was on long-service leave.
And on one episode, the reality TV star built up the courage to ask host Jackie O, 45, on a date live on air.

‘Am I your sort of guy?’ he casually asked.
To which a stunned Jackie O responded: ‘Yes, you are a sweet guy, I really like you. You’re really lovely.’
‘Would you actually date me if I asked you out on a date?’ Lachlan asked, adding that he would take Jackie bowling.
‘Okay, that would be fun. He is so nice, how could you not [go on a date with him],’ she agreed.
‘Am I your type of guy?’ Lachlan asked Jackie O (pictured) whether she would be interested in going on a date with him
Jackie’s co-host Kyle Sandilands then asked Lachlan whether he would kiss on a first date or not.
‘If the connection was there then I would kiss on the first date,’ he revealed.
Lachlan continued: ‘One of the things I learnt from the experience that I just went through is that the guy has to show the confidence to take that first step.’

In August, Lachlan was crowned the winner of Beauty and the Geek alongside his partner Keira.
The pair earned the most votes from the other contestants, ahead of Alexander Wojno and Eliza Sowada-Smith, and Josie Werner and George Goldfeder.
Lachlan and Kiera broke down in tears as Sophie announced they’d won the life-changing $100,000 cash prize.
