It wasn’t that long ago that he was living on the streets, with everything he had in the world in his arms. Thankfully things had mostly turned around for him.
He had a place to live now and a nice girl. In fact, they had plans to get married; they just didn’t have the means.
Now, things are more than a little different. That’s because Jordan Ross just won $200,000!
The native of Perth, Australia literally hit the lottery. The reaction of Ross and his fiancée, Jayde Hicks, is probably what most people’s reaction would be. As he told 7 News, “She just cried, he’s been crying — non-stop crying. We both have.”
They haven’t discussed everything yet, but do know that they can now have that wedding they’ve been dreaming about. He wants to help his family too.
Like you’ve seen in nearly every movie about a kid who gets some money quickly, he has plans to buy his mother a new car. He’s a good son, right?

He also wants to use some of the money for schooling so that he can get himself a good job. It certainly seems like a good, practical decision.
As for Hicks, she ran right out and made a quick purchase with the winnings. She bought a vacuum cleaner!
Her choice of purchase says a lot, doesn’t it? These two would not be faulted for going a little wild with their winnings after struggling financially for so long.
Instead, though they stayed practical, sensible, putting love and family first. These types of stories always bring about the same sorts of questions.
‘What would I do if I won the lottery?’ ‘How would I divide up the money?’ So, what would you do?
Would you pay off bills? Get a gold-plated bathtub? Take a trip? Start a charity? Buy lunch for a restaurant full of strangers? Let us know in the comments section below!
