Looking good on ratings
Recipe of geeks and babes woos over viewers, writes
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.
