ATLANTA -- A Georgia man who claimed he didn't know who won the presidential election now knows the result.

As 11Alive first reported on Nov. 11, Joe Chandler of Brunswick, Ga., said he locked himself into a sort of special "cone of silence" on election night.

“I just didn't have it in me,” Chandler said at the time. “I’m like, 'I’ve got to step off this insane merry go round; I just don't want to know. I’ll look in the morning."

The next morning turned into the next afternoon then the next night. Before Joe knew it, he spend 12 days in "blissful oblivion."

Staying in the "bubble of ignorance" was no easy feat; Joe had to wear noise-canceling headphones and a sign to let people know that he didn't want to know.

Joe finally found out that Donald Trump was our next president Tuesday morning on Q100's The Bert Show.

The cast, including Bert Weiss, Kristin Klingshirn and Brian Moote, provided a “gender party” type of reveal, surprising Chandler with a box filled of red balloons for the Republican Party.

Joe said the experience has changed him. His words of wisdom:

"Not knowing who to root for -- not having a side, knowing that people were arguing and bickering and rioting, but not knowing which side I was on, it caused me to not only look at the politics, but the people," he said. "Who has done to us? Is it Donald Trump? Is it Hillary Clinton? I think we have done this to ourselves."
