Beauty And The Geek – A “fake” Romance
Ok so I confirmed Corin Storkey may not be the “typical” geek, he has managed to hold down a relationship for quite sometime and have a kid (see my story about it here and further details on the saga go to TV Tonight ). However I think Emma “Miss Congeniality” is fake as well. I have mentioned it before but she is obviously not as dumb as some of the other girls. Also I think her parents are doctors or are at least university graduates.
So it is interesting that the two “fakes” are bonding very well in the house.
Though I don’t blame her Corin looked pretty hot jumping into the spa. Did I spot a glimmer of a six pack? Apparently Emma is the beauty the geeks all like as she is good looking “naturally attractive” and the most intelligent.
The challenges tonight were a speech for the beauties, and the boys had to dress them for a day at the races.
Hadassah thought the speech might involve John Howard, because clearly politicians and reality TV is the new fad.
The beauties were teaching the geeks about fashion. Which I thought was interesting considering a lot of the girls have dubious taste. Expect a lot of micro minis.
The challenge for the boys was first they had to make a fascinator that reflected their personality, and also had to pick a dress for their beauty to model.
Kate Watehouse, and Peter Jago were the judges. Seriously what sort of taste does Peter have, he was all bling bling.
Toby’s fascinater was based on patriotism, and I thought it looked ok.
I loved Paul’s fascinator with the disco ball and wrestler. Xenogene’s had a bit of everything in it, but he is my favourite geek.
Michelle had a shark on his head to reflect Peter’s love of nature.
Corin and Lisa were runner-up in the challenge, but Emma and Jeremy won.
At this point they were definitely whipping up the Emma and Corin flirtation, they were very touchy feely.Corin likes Emma’s integrity. And she thought “he is definitely dateable”. “They would have very smart babies,” said Lisa. I think the issue with Corin and the child is if it had been put out at the beginning of the show no one would have thought anything of it, however it appears they were trying to sweep it under the carpet. A big thanks to commenter Goofus for the tip.
Hadassah was freaking out about her public speaking challenge. Her topic was combating obesity. She finally started talking, it didn’t make sense but was vaguely amusing.
By the way was the hall where the girls were doing their public speaking the same hall where a very bad concert was held by the “talent” in My Kid is A Star (sorry I thought I had erased that show out of my head).
Jenna did not know what a republic was so said things should stay the same, not mentioning the monarchy.
Lisa is hilarious as she is so ditzy. Michelle was sweet talking about her parents.Emma won talking about the GFC and how much she spend to much on shoes.
This meant they got to nominated both teams. The teams that were nominated were Toby and Jenna, and Elise and Paul.
The boys had fashion questions to answer. I would have only been able to answer one of the questions correctly.
The girls had questions about speeches. Elise stumbled on a question about Mahatma Gandhi, so Toby and Jenna got to stay.
