Beauty And The Geek – Revealed A Fake Geek In The House

Corin Storkey has been outed as a fake geek.

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/entertainment/878411/seven-outs-geek-contestant-as-a-fake has an article which shows one of the geeks is not actually a geek. Apparently the producers got suss and he was playing football and was actually co-ordinated.

Corin Storkey, a 28-year-old chemistry PhD student from Melbourne is the cunning contestant.

The article states:

Curry’s suspicions about Storkey were confirmed during a casual football game between the crew and contestants, he said.

“We were playing football on grand final day and he was kind of just catching the ball with ease … he wasn’t uncoordinated at all,” Curry said.

Storkey’s stereotypically geeky wardrobe “” thick-rimmed glasses, garishly bright shirts and high-waisted jeans “” soon prompted online speculation that he was a fake.

“Corin is far from a geek “” those glasses are from a $2 store and don’t fool anyone,” Hailee Forde wrote on the show’s online message board.

“I was sus about Corin from the start … so obvious,” another post read.

But aside from Storkey, the show’s other contestants were all “the genuine article”, Curry insisted.

“They have all learnt so much from the show through the course of the series and the changes are obvious,” he said.

Personally I think it is hilarious and don’t see an issue with it considering the majority of the beauties in the household are fake.

Thanks Wurstsemmel for sending me through the article. Also Wurstsemmel will be blogging on Beauty and The Geek, and The Amazing Race.

It’s a bit rich of them to accuse Corin of being fake when the show is known for giving their contestants “geek makeovers”…

Isn’t everything fake on this show? Hair colour, body parts, tans……

Too funny – but what was he hoping to achieve – a lengthy career as a geek? surely not just to meet these ‘beauties’??

I don’t watch it, but what qualifies someone as a geek?? Surely doing a PhD in anything is a good start? LOL.

Anon – mmm interesting should the audience feel ripped off because the character is not real, and the viewer is emotionally investing in a fake?

Wurstsemmel – Different standards apply to the beauties but you are so right.

Seepi- maybe he had his eye on the prize money as he would be able to make the best transformation. He has won two of the challenges thus far. But he was lovely to poor Alan.

Saffronlie – Probably no experience with girls, and have to be uncoordinated I wonder how they tested for all that.

Bring back Alan as a replacement. After he got stuck with that miserable Kate, he deserves a second chance.

I just bought my girlfriend the exact same pair of glasses today. They are glass not lenses.

Goofus- Who has got a kid?

Corin does, a 5 year old now, born after he lived with her mother for 5 years (then cheated on her)

I remember in one of the episodes Corin’s partner have used his glasses to look intelligent teaching the class. If those glasses were fake, then I’m sure the girl would of realised and told everyone. Something doesn’t add up here.
