Look­ing good on rat­ings

Recipe of geeks and babes woos over view­ers, writes

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

IT’S the mes­sage be­hind Beauty and the Geek more than the show it­self that has made it a rat­ing’s hit, says host Bernard Curry.

The Chan­nel 7 re­al­ity show re­turns for a fourth sea­son tonight with Curry at the helm, guid­ing the 10 geeks and their cho­sen beau­ties through a se­ries of chal­lenges and elim­i­na­tions.

Curry puts the suc­cess down to the show’s un­der­ly­ing mes­sage and be­cause it’s a game changer in the lives of the con­tes­tants. Even the view­ers can take some­thing away about re­la­tion­ships.

‘‘On face value, this show does look a lit­tle bit shal­low and bit of pop­corn but it does have a deeper more solid heart than that,’’ Curry says.

‘‘Not only does a geek go on his own jour­ney . . . the beau­ties have their own jour­neys.

‘‘They come out of this with a bit more de­tailed in­sight into life, their life and their own place within it. They have a broader spec­trum on what life is and beauty is not just skin deep.’’

Curry jokes he is not a dat­ing guru and sug­gests the geeks should not take his tips or ad­vice too se­ri­ously.

He wants them to suc­ceed, though.

Beau­ties pre­pare to meet their geeks.
