Beauty And The Geek – Season Two Has A Faux Geek As Well
Not even at week three of the second series of Beauty and the Geek and we have a this guy is not a geek scandal.
Geek Daniel Iachini has been shown to have form with the ladies.
Nine MSN reports (thanks Wurstsemmel) that Iachini is actually quite confident with women and has had several girlfriends in the past, including a long term relationship of 18 months.
This is not unlike last year when it was revealed geek Corin had a child and had long term relationships. (Blog about that saga here)
I understand Channel Seven for this series had a hard time recruiting geeks so this is why Daniel application may have got him on the show.
Theoretically you can be a geek and get laid, as the premise of the show that the girls show them how to be cool to maybe shag a better quality chick? And the boys try and teach them how to count to 20 or something like that.
According to friends, Iachini is actually quite confident with women and has had several girlfriends in the past, including a long term relationship of 18 months.
Far from being an awkward geek, the 23-year-old is a regular on Adelaide’s nightclub scene, where he has helped friends with promoting club events.
An acquaintance of Iachini’s, who did not want to be named, said he was puzzled to see him as a contestant on Beauty and the Geek.
“Why is Daniel on that show? Since when did preppy G-Star clothes and a long beard make someone a geek?” he said.
“I’m all for people having fun and giving things a go but it’s not really fair and it obviously compromises the integrity of the show when for starters, the geeks aren’t really geeks.”
Iachini’s friend Stuart Duckworth, who handles promotions for the Electric Circus nightclub, said Iachini was a geek but not in the stereotypical sense.
“He’s a scientist who has been studying for years and he is really smart,” Mr Duckworth told ninemsn.
“But he’s not the type of geek who doesn’t know how to dress well.”
“I wouldn’t consider him to be a really geeky person and he definitely would be a lot less geeky than the other people in the house.”
Mr Duckworth said he was not surprised to hear that Iachini — who has been romantically pursuing personal shopper Kara Palmieri and on tomorrow’s night episode kisses twin Ellie in the spa — had been making advances towards the beauties in the house.
For me the most interesting part of this article was that it was revealed he had been on Channel Nine’s Millionaire’s Hot Seat and bailed out at the first question. I would love to know what the question was.
