t the CLEO Eligible Bachelor Finale Party, I was stuck right in the middle of the action. Emcees Maggy Wang and Dennis Yin were hyping the crowd up, with the KL marching band rallying party-goers with their drum rolls. A gaggle of girls were cheering and squealing for their favourite Bachelor. I scanned the stage, looking for the soon-to-be champion, fully aware that his name was already at the tip of the announcers’ tongues. I spotted him just as his name was called. From the far left corner of the stage, amidst the cheering and hollering, this tall, strapping lad with a bashful yet cheeky grin stepped onto the stage. That was when the crowd went wild.
