Daniel replied to Harrison's post, also commending his performance. "Great job man! You and Steve killed it," he wrote.

Fellow MAFS groom Duncan James also left a comment on Harrison's post, calling it a "close contest". "You did really well on your first fight mate," he added.

In the same post, Harrison shared his thanks to his friends and family for their support with the fight, which included a special shout-out to his "beautiful partner" Gina.

Gina also posted a supportive message on Harrison's post. "So proud of you!!," she wrote with a red love heart emoji.

Harrison confirmed his relationship with Gina back in May, as they stepped out together for the launch of Australian reality TV show Model Farmers.

In July, while appearing on the Back to Reality podcast, Harrison hinted a proposal could be on the cards soon, as he described Gina as "the one".

In the interview, Harrison revealed that he and Gina were planning a trip to Europe soon, adding: "That trip to Europe could also yield a surprise".

Harrison was married to Bronte Schofield on season 10 of the show, but the duo had a very up-and-down relationship.

They eventually called time on their romance ahead of the season finale.
