AN­DREW FEN­TON OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Thursday - BEAUTY AND THE GEEK, Seven, 8.30pm

WHEN­EVER I watch this en­ter­tain­ing but silly show, I al­ways won­der if there’s a team of stylists de­voted to mak­ing the geeks ap­pear as ridicu­lously nerdy as pos­si­ble. And I al­ways think: of course there is, no one wears out­fits like those ex­cept on TV. Tonight, the nerds bat­tle it out for the ti­tle of Tough­est Geek, in a se­ries of lu­di­crous chal­lenges which in­volve the eat­ing of very hot pies, the sculling of very fizzy cola and the at­tempted in­tim­i­da­tion of a very burly man. Nathan pays the bloke out for wear­ing dou­ble denim. It’s not in­tim­i­dat­ing, but it sure makes Jes­sica proud. She taught him that.
