On 9 June 2009, he was declared the winner against tough competition from finalist and eventual runner-up Leïla Aissaoui as well as from third Camélia Jordana. He proved to be a phenomenon with his piercings and tattoos, pretty face, smoky eye makeup (l'oeil de biche), deep baritone voice and unique sense of fashion. Jean Paul Gaultier designed several of Soan's costumes and outfits.
