Jordi Webber set to break more hearts


Rotorua's Jordi Webber is already a pop star but he could be about to attain extra fame as Bachelor of the Year.

Jordi, who makes up one-sixth of New Zealand boy band Titanium, has been named as a finalist in the Cleo Cruiser Bachelor of the Year 2013 competition as Mr July. At just 18, the teen heart-throb can boast being a member of one of the country's biggest bands, and having a No 1 single with Come On Home which reached platinum status and fuelled a successful national tour.

He has also performed alongside international pop stars Hot Chelle Rae and Cher Lloyd and is now performing in Australia with his band mates.

In a video interview on the YouTube website, Jordi told the Cleo team that being part of Titanium had boosted his confidence. He said he'd always been a confident person but being in front of people, on stage and before the cameras, had increased that a little more.

He describes himself as pretty crazy and very energetic - on and off stage.

He told the Cleo team that even though he was always singing and dancing as part of Titanium, his biggest strength was acting and he hoped to pursue that career in the future.

However, those aren't his only talents. He also said he was a bit of a baker, with chocolate brownies, afghans and banana chocolate-chip muffins as his top three choices in the kitchen.

He hoped being part of the Bachelor of the Year campaign would help him further his acting opportunities.

"One thing I'm hoping to get is a bit more exposure for myself because acting is still my dream, I still want to pursue that and I'm hoping this will open a few more doors for me."
