Reacting to the win, Antony said: "I think they must have made a mistake. I am completely overwhelmed. I think that's insane. It's kind of like a crazy contest between an orange and a spaceship and a potted plant and a spoon – which one do you like better?"

C'mon Antony! I knew that you are special! I have introduced you to the "world" 4 months ago!
