Beauty and the Geek is a Bloody Nose of a Guilty Pleasure

Posted by Fara Kearnes on June 2, 2005 4:40 PM |

Beauty and the GeekExecutive producer Ashton Kutcher launched his new "social experiment" reality series on the WB network Wednesday night, as an odd lot of humanity from the opposite sides of the social spectrum are thrown together.

The 6-episode show is simple: Seven mismatched pairs of brainy dorks and brainless bimbos are teamed up to learn from each other and compete in challenges designed to test knowledge of the world as well as fashion savvy. It's about when good looks meet good grades. The winners will walk away with $250,000 in mad cash.

The show is surprisingly laugh-out loud funny at times, especially if you know even a smattering of American History or like trivia challenges.

One blonde hottie was asked who the President of the United States was during the Civil War. (**crickets chirping**) Her answer: Herbert Hoover? Bupkiss! Zing. Wrong! When told it was Abraham Lincoln, the airhead beauty clinched her teeth and exclaimed - this is the best part - she exclaimed, "Doh! That's right! D-DAY!"

, And yet bully for her for even knowing the name "Herbert Hoover."

Even funnier was the tall geek who gets a nose bleed when he's even a little bit nervous. Which is apparently any time he's around a girl. Here I was wondering if the show was going to suck, but that was just classic. Ashton couldn't have punk'd it better if this entire thing was scripted.

The silliness of it reminds me of my cousin and his buddies who were making fun of the Star Wars movie over the weekend. They were throwing their heads back and wooing like Chewbacca. They were getting pretty good at it, too. Not good, like, conjugating verbs in wookie-speak or anything, but enough to attract the attention of everyone in the bar. After that, the waitperson cut us off. whatever.

Oh wait, where was I?

"Itís pretty innovative," said Joe Hanson, a college senior and one of the geeks on the show. "The girls are hot, but also very sweet, and the guys are academic, but not losers."

Some of Hansonís fellow geeks include a Mensa member, a computer programmer, an assistant Boy Scout Master, a medical student, and the vice president of a "Dukes of Hazzard" fan club. Among the beauties are a sorority girl, lingerie model, NBA dancer, fashion designer, and cocktail waitress.

Robert Redford will be directing, producing and acting in a movie based on a man who has been phobic and has not left his house for over 40 years. His character learns with the help of a neighbor that his life is more valuable and important than his phobias and just as relearning to walk his character relearns to live a joyous life in the physical world again.
