Beauty And The Geek Finale – So The Fake Geek and Fake Beauty Made The Final Two. Hmm
Once the fake geek (Corin), and the fake beauty (Emma) were both in teams in the final two I kind of lost interest. The Amazing Race type scenario was a yawn, the clues were too easy, and there were no witty to camera scenes. A bit of anti-climatic finish to what has been a pretty good show.
The first part of the show was an Amazing Race type scenario where the last three teams standing had to find three beauty or geeks and be one of the first two teams to make it back to the mansion.
Kat was picked up on Bondi beach by Michelle and Peter. Michelle looked pretty fit running up Bondi beach, and Peter did look like a geek lumbering up behind her.
At Luna Park there was a foot race between Corin’s and Jeremy’s team to pick up Elyse. Corin won.
Again there was a race between Peter and Michelle, and Jeremy and Emma at King’s Comics, which Jeremy’s team won, partially due to Michelle and Peter running the wrong way.
Corin and Lisa found everyone in about a 2 km radius, as they picked up Alan and Toby in The Rocks vicinity. Got to say I think I prefer Toby with curly hair. They made it back to the house first. I am sorry Bernard Curry is no Phil Keoghan. With Emma and Jeremy arriving second. Peter and Michelle were eliminated.
There was a flat looking party, would you be drinking if you had a $100,000 test the next day but it did not seem to stop them.
The final quiz was one where it was to show how much they knew about their partner. It was all correct answer’s until Lisa’s final question where she was asked what sport was Corin was playing when he broke a bone when he was young. The answer was rugby, however Lisa answered badminton. How does anyone break bones playing badminton? this gave Emma the opportunity to answer the next question correctly to ensure her and Jeremy won the first season of the show.
I really enjoyed the first series of Beauty and the Geek, except for this episode which felt a bit flat, but has the show got a second series in it? I suppose it will depend on the casting, which hopefully will be more rigorous then season one.
