The boys were also seen trying on Blake’s custom-made jacket, which featured the slogan “Sexiest Man Alive” emblazoned in sequins on the back. Gwen also couldn’t resist sporting the jacket, which referenced the title Blake was given by People magazine earlier this year.

Following his win, Blake admitted he predicts big things for Chloe, telling USA Today: “I truly think Chloe can go on from here and become the first star that we’ve had come out of this show that can have some hit songs.”

“The record company just needs to give her the platform. If they can really do that it’s going to be easy,” he added.

Meanwhile, Chloe said that she knows she has made a friend for life in Blake, smiling: “I’m very stoked that we won this together, but regardless I think we would have worked together and kept it going. It’s not just for the show, it’s real.”
