“To win is honestly the greatest achievement of my life,” Jacobz told AAA.
“I have never wanted something so much in my life.”
The now 40-year-old dedicated his win and the $20,000 cash prize to the Charlie Teo Foundation, a charity that funds brain cancer research.
The Home and Away actor, whose real name is Luke Jacob Ashwood, won his first trophy in 2008 with his partner Luda Kroiter.

This year’s season saw celebrity contestants return to the competition, including Tom Williams, Fifi Box, Jamie Durie, and wildcard contestants Schapelle Corby, Renee Bargh, Matty J, Jessicca Gomes, and Erin McNaught.
After the announcement of his win, Jacobz said, “Thank you for asking me to come back, when I did this show in 2008, I was always like if they do another one and ask people back, I want to have a go at it, because I really enjoyed it last time.”
“I’m so grateful to be partnered with Jorja, she works so incredibly hard, her passion and love for dancing is so inspiring.”
With his win, Jacobz is hoping more opportunities will come up to follow his passion for performing.View this post on Instagram
“I really hope that winning can open doors for me to perform on a live stage,” he said. “To tour with other dancers or to be part of a production would be a dream come true. Next is unwritten … but I am hungry for more so, if the opportunity arises, I will be there to take it but I am a duo so Jorja is coming with me.”
