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.

Wham Bram
I am a man

She’s dating a international celeb brainiac. Good luck to her. She still appears more geek than outright fake like Bendi. Raver, I think you are confusing geekiness with pathologically shy virgins and total social misfits. I’m sure there are plenty of geeks out there getting more intimacy and bonking than most of us on this site…well, me anyway.

I don’t get why the main assumption is geek = can’t be in a relationship

BDD stop it – I’ve been trying to get some work done today and between you and CB all I’ve managed is to fall about laughing.

The geeks are in relationships- with their X Boxes , Playstations and computers.

Lies, damned lies, and statisticians.

TV Girl – even if he lives overseas, they are geeks they would be able to do all sorts of freaky things over the internet….. if you get my drift.

i’m confused as to how having a boyfriend means she’s not a geek….dating an international sudoku champion seems pretty dorky to me! just because geeks date each other it doesn’t mean they are no longer geeks!
