On Friday and Saturday 1st and 2nd July we are holding auditions in Canberra for ‘Beauty and the Geek’ Series 3. The program is a lot of fun and seeks to celebrate the ‘geek’ and geekiness in general. The geeks are our heroes!

If you are an 18 – 30 year old male and you are super intelligent, with some geeky/nerdy hobbies or interests we would love to meet you. And if you know someone who is a geek/nerd – it’s time to tell them!

Call Ange asap on: 0419 276 853 for more information or register online at: www.beautyandthegeek.com.au

Never seen so much rubbish – I hate the way the default position is the geek guy and the female “beauty” – and I would hope any nerdy guy would have the good sense (not guaranteed, I know) to steer clear of the vacuous. Furthermore, for the info of Holden Caulfield, the Silicone Kid, who is a friend of mine, is a very busy person doing a myriad of amazing things, he has a high level career – his page in the CT is just one of his relatively minor, but enjoyable, occupations.

I have no real issue with the show, but think that the premise – that the contestants need to be changed so that their personalities are less nerdy or less ditzy – is a bit wrong. People should live their lives how they want to live their lives, and so long as their way of life isn’t adversely impacting anyone else, what is the harm?

This show is trash tv at it’s finest.

It is so trashy it is elevated to kitsch status, I reckon. (Haven’t watched the Aussie version, but I used to sometimes watch the US one late at night.)

I wish the skills taught would actually develop both groups to make them better people with well rounded skills. I suppose changing a tyre, learning to touch type, or general arithmetic doesn’t make great tv, but it would be a lot more useful that sliding down a lubed up slide onto a giant map.

Surely those whom are so politically correct can see the fun in this?
The wardrobe dept so a great job by reinforcing the characters.

the Canberra geek girl had all the male geeks keen – so sweet!
surely she doesn’t actually wear socks and sandals in real life though?

Does anyone actually watch this show? That’s anyone with an age or IQ over 11?
Ugly, stupid, worthless.

That would be a Himbo.

Is the Silicon Kid going to apply so he can finally move on from the back pages of the Crimes?

Great way to reinforce stereotypes.

You’re joking, aren’t you? I really hope you are.

+1 – would be interesting to watch the girls squirm instead of the lads.
