Beauty And The Geek – Corin Storkey The New Alvin Purple?
Well if the rumours about Corin being a fake geek will be going into overdrive after tonight’s episode, where he definitely showed his smoothness with the LAYDEEE’S. That is something you cannot learn out of the white folders that are a staple in the geek house.
Also this episode they definitely played up the Emma and Corin “romance”. However Corin did say he had a connection with Emma, and then he said he had a connection with Hadassah. So he was covering his bases.
Toby said “Corin is open and charismatic.” Basically he is a player.
Neither of the beauty’s or the geeks appear to do cryptic crosswords as each week they cannot work out the clues on the table that are meant to signify their next challenge.
Any way the challenge was the girls would have to be tour guides and spend a night at a museum. Which I had thought meant they were sleeping over, but it was just the tours were happening at night. Hadassah was not too impressed about the museum part of the challenge. Just quietly I wouldn’t have been either after being told they were going to the Australian Museum, it must rank as one of the most boring museums in the world. There is one floor which is all rocks, thankfully they did not have to talk about those.
While they were studying Michelle was having trouble with words over three syllables, and Peter was trying to help her say antiquities it was almost like My Fair Lady. Unfortunately Peter did not burst into song. It appears Peter has grown a beard since the makeover. Is this to replace some of the hair he got waxed last week? It diminishes his hotness.
The girls talked to tour groups in their normal ditzy but charming style. They made up dinosaur names and facts, which is kind of amusing, as most five year old boys who are obsessed with dino’s would know they were telling lies.
Michelle won the prize so that means her and Peter were safe from nominations this week. However I thought Hadassah should have won it for her boob thrust to try and get the stick insect onto the branch. That was hilarious.
Then I thought I was having a Big Brother flash back with the obligatory spa scene with girls in bikini’s and the house’s equivalent of Alvin Purple, Corin. Also I thought a dancing doona scene was going to ensue but the camera’s in this houshold are much more discrete. But it must be said that Corin woke up in a bed with three girls. Which should have automatically seen him expelled from the house. Most ‘normal’ non-geek guys manage to get one girl into the sack but not three at once. This makes him an alpha male in normal society, and must give him god like status in a geek house.
This may explain why he was not nominated this week. AGAIN. Is he forming alliances with the other guys?
As Lisa said “Corin has come out of his shell, just a little bit too much.”
The geeks challenge was to dish out some love advice on Dr Feelgood’s program. Hopefully these were set up callers ala Kyle and Jackie O style.
Toby’s caller (a male) asked him how to take his relationship to the next level. Toby first clarified the question that it was about sex.Duh! And then mentions something about talking about it when you were going downtown. Obviously this is some new Gen Y slang I have not heard before.
Peter’s advice on romance was really bad, he thought food was good, and suggested banana’s. Maybe he thought this was to get her in the mood to go…..Downtown.
Jeremy stumbled over his is female facial hair a turnoff question? It was a difficult one as he did not want to cause offence but probably did anyway as he kept on pausing. So she would have know he was lying.
“She doesn’t sound hairy” said Hadassah who thinks these things can be told over the radio. Was she expecting a deeper voice?
Xenogene got the infidelity question and he handled it quite well, even though he was a bit long winded. But as he hinted earlier his form is not great .”Any infatuations I developed are neutralised,” said Xenogene in Trekkie speak. However next week it looks like Xenogene is very infatuated with one of the beauties.
Corin’s question was about a love triangle. Corin said men are always attracted to other women. Dr Feelgood butted in at that point.
The winner who apparently gave advice that was outside the square was Peter. Therefore the Peter/ Michelle team controlled the nominations.
It was nomination time, and the camera men should get props for NOT getting any crotch shots as the girls walk down the stairs.
They nominated Emma and Jeremy, and Jenna and Toby (is that the fourth time?)
“It is not the end of Corin and Emma, in my mind.” said Emma, at this point I was starting to roll my eyes. Ok producers we get it Emma and Corin have the hots for each other.
It was neck and neck in the quiz with the boys, until Toby could not think of a second husband for Pamela Lee Anderson. In fact nor could I and I live on a steady diet of NW Mag. And in the end Jenna and Toby were eliminated.
Jenna dressed in a micro micro mini exited the house looking like she was ready to walk straight into a mens magazine shoot.
I was fortunate to have an interview with Toby Latcham today, I am still transcribing, but it should be up tomorrow. I did ask him about Corin and Emma, but unfortunately he was very diplomatic.
