Seven unveils Beauty & the Geek Australia next month.
Bernard Curry hosts the show which sees eight Beauties and eight Geeks sharing a house together and teamed up to compete in a series of challenges to test their brains and charisma.
On offer is a $100,000 prize.
Based on the format from the Ashton Kutcher-produced series, each contestant will need to share their strengths with their partner, and overcome their own weaknesses.
Or just hook up….
During the series the girls study up on anatomy, undertake scientific experiments and re-take Year 4 history. The guys face speed dating (for many their first date ever), composing and performing their own song to a live audience (a challenge that is close to one tried on Australia’s Perfect Couple).
Bernard Curry says, “People will love this show because of its warm-hearted centre. It’s about celebrating differences and Australia will identify with both the geeks and beauties as there’s a little bit of both in all of us.”
Or because they just hook up?
It premieres 8:30pm Thursday October 8th on Seven.
