Beauty and the Geek

Thursday, January 11, 2007
There's this show on what used to be the WB, and is now inexplicably (I'm sure I could find out why- I'm sure it has something to do with a merger, hostile takeover, or buyout) called the CW. I'm ashamed to admit that I'm now a regular viewer of Beauty and the Geek, a crap reality tv show. Oh, but the geeks! And the airheads! Oh, the mayhem!

I am even further ashamed of the fact that at the end of every show, in order to decide which geek/airhead team will be booted out of the house that awkward built, they have a trivia challenge. Last night, while I answered all the pop-culture/beauty/fashion questions designed to stump the geeks, I did not know any of the answers to the questions designed to confuse the beauties. No, I don't know the name of the plane Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic. No, I don't know what NASA stands for.

Damn. I'm screwed, my reputation is screwed, and I have come to the crushing realisation that I can no longer bank on my geek reputation to explain the days that I choose to mix plaids and stripes and talk about pi- but that wearing plaid and stripes also disqualifies my application for the 'beauty' side of the spectrum.

I missed Beauty and the Geek however I did catch the first (and probably the last) episode of The Little Mosque on the Prairie. I wanted to watch it because Jean Taylor had a very minor role in it. I turned it on 2 minutes into the show and missed Jean.

i watch that show too... don't feel so bad. i liked the part where the geeks had their challenge and it only took two questions to eliminate all but one geek on his knowledge of the naked model.
