Beauty and The Geek Australia – Episode 1 – Rapping and Teaching
Channel Seven are calling this show a social experiment, come on it is really just a reality TV show, based on the premise that all a bloke wants is a hot looking chick. Obviously all the girls on the show are hoping they will get a Ralph or FHM spread out of it. Most of them were probably very unhappy that Big Brother had finished and stopped that as a career path to Page Three fame.
The guys arrived first and then the girls turned up in the compulsory mini dresses. Then they had to introduce themselves to each other, and someone had to pick if they wanted to go with that person.
Corin, the synthetic organic chemist, went into to introduce himself to the girls first. “I work in a lab and I don’t think I have seen that much peroxide in my life. Lisa an aspiring actress picked him, and she did some type of semi porn dance up in the bedroom they chose to share.
Jenna a flight stewardess teamed up with Toby who has three degrees
Xenogene a physicist wrote a song as his introduction which went down like a lead balloon. None of the girls wanted him, obviously the producers got out the cattle prod and Hadassah the spray tan technician walked out of the room.
Emma an actress and model and Miss Congeniality was chosen by Jeremy.
Paul an econometrician (what is that?)- was paired with Elise a V8 grid girl.
Kate a Glamour model was popular with the guys, as she said the guys eyes lit up like it was Christmas. Alan the child genius grabbed her and he said he was hoping he could learn some humour
Peter a fungal scientist who I thought was quite cute was picked by Michelle the meter maid.
Nathan the comic collector and english teacher was paired up with Kimberley the beauty queen.
The next was the spa scene and Peter was very hairy and self conscious about it. All the girls kept their tops on, probably because there was no alcohol involved.
Two challenges one for the beauty and one for the geek. And seriously who does Jenna fly for? Would she even remember the chapter in the training manual that has the emergency procedures?
I could not believe that one of the girls Kimberley did not know all of the states.
The challenge for the beauty’s was to teach a grade four class. But were given a card to either teach a Science, Geography, or maths. Lisa was teaching geography and having to draw a map of Australia, for awhile there I thought she was going to insult the Tasmanian viewers by leaving it off. But that was not her stumbling block it was the number of states. She was telling them there were eight.
Emma had to teach science who does not seem as dumb as the others, and it was later revealed her mother was a science teacher.
Xenogene’s beauty Hadassah just completely froze when she did her history lesson. She was cried afterwards, and Xenogene must be walking ball of sexual frustration, as he called her “an amazing person”.
The geeks challenge was a rap challenge. Guest judges was Jessica Mauboy who Toby thought was Molly’s girlfriend, clearly Toby has no gaydar.
Toby was first and I have to confess this guy cracks me up with his comments and demeanour.
Corin was next and he did ok. Xenogene was a big fail, has turned up as joke audtionee at Australian Idol or So You Think You Can Dance? Or does he just remind me of Sex the serial auditioner on the US version of So You Think You Can Dance?
The winners of the two challenges had to nominate two teams to be up for elimination, but the twist was there was not going to be an elimination. Oh dudded.
All in all it was quite an interesting episode, helped along by some zippy one liners from the geeks.
