Beauty And The Geek Aus­tralia

Seven, 8.30pm

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - PROGRAMS -

This week’s in­stal­ment sees the end of a supremely en­ter­tain­ing sea­son shaken by ac­cu­sa­tions of false nerdi­ness – with con­tes­tant Corin outed as hav­ing a child from a pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ship, de­spite pro­mo­tion for the se­ries ad­ver­tis­ing the blokes’ lack of sex­ual awak­en­ing as ev­i­dence of their loser lifestyles. Even Young Lib­eral mem­ber Toby – whose al­leged right-wing po­lit­i­cal lean­ings have made waves on in­ter­net mes­sage boards in re­cent weeks – has had to deal with claims he’s not a bonafide nerd. How does one bat­tle such claims? In Toby’s case, you pro­vide links to seven years worth of Star Trek fan fic­tion. If that’s not geeky, then what is?
