Beauty And The Geek – Is Helen The Girl Geek Also A Fake?
After the revelation that Bendeguz was a fake, TV WEEK also has found out that Helen the girl geek has a boyfriend.
WTF? I thought these geeks were in the house to acquire the skills to get a bit of action from the opposite sex.
The article (hard copy only) says:
“I have a boyfriend,” Helen reveals. The chemistry tutor adds that her boyfriend, Dutch Sudoku champion Bram de Laat, needn’t worry about her being in a house with a bunch of male geeks.
“I think he’ll have a great laugh watching it – the challenges are fun!” the 26-year-old explains. While her male counterparts are keen to learn the art of dating and acquire social skill, Helen admits she had a greater reason to take on the competition.
“I want to be a role model for young girls,” she says. “There are unhealthy role models in the fashion, singing and music worlds, which unrealistic to a certain extent.”
I do wish they had a real female geek on the show, however I get her point about unrealistic role models in the media. It always irks me when 19 year old beauty pageant contestants want to be role models.
