Beauty & the Geek...

First off, I would like to start by stating that I very rarely see a program on the WB that seems to be worth watching. With that said a friend of mine sent me a link describing a new reality show called Beauty and the Geek. “It all starts with seven women who are academically impaired (but very attractive). Next, add seven men who are brilliant but socially challenged (nerds/dorks). The concept is to pair up couples for a chance to win a $250,000 grand prize.” I probably will never actually watch the show on TV, but viewing the video clips online was entertaining enough. I guess what makes this show work is the one thing people dred & hate the most ever happening to them- awkward social interaction.

“Because I'm so busy with the ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ fan club, I have trouble meeting women.” - Bill (some dude on the show)

The producing partners of the show are Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg (Punk’d), although you’ll never see them actually on the show.
