Waiariki MP Congratulates Cleo Bachelor of the Year

MP for Waiariki, Te Ururoa Flavell, has congratulated the winner of the Cleo Bachelor of the Year, Te Arawa teenager, Jordi Webber.

"Jordi is a bright, talented young man who has achieved so much in his life already and he's only 18!" said Flavell.

"From winning the regional Manu Kōrero speeches in 2010, to being Head Prefect at Rotorua Boys High School and on to being selected in the boy band Titanium – he has now gone on to become Aotearoa's most sought after bachelor – that's super talent.”

"Jordi's parents Chris and Jacque have plenty to be proud of and they have obviously had a huge impact and influence on their boy’s life with Jacque's involvement in Zumba fitness and Chris being a seasoned performer himself."

"I look forward to seeing what else this young man has in store for us in the future.”
