Slightly Entertaining, Mostly Insulting
3 July 2005 | by (Pennsylvania, America) – See all my reviews

Let's face it. Ashton Kutcher was never a genius. But even his wild, immature antics on "Punk'd" can be justified compared to the pure stupidity of the contestants on "Beauty and the Geek." Actually, it's more like "Selfish, Stereotype Hottie and the Pathetic Loser." This reality show is basically a cross between a dating show and a college thesis experiment. It takes a certain number of average, somewhat pathetic, guys, most with freakishly high IQ's, and forces them to live in a mansion with an equal number of extremely hot, shallow girls that they get to drool over. And they aren't exactly Ivy-Leauge material. Each girl is paired up with a guy who, to their dismay, is their roommate. In each episode, both the guy and the girl educate the other to face two different challenges, including how to change a tire and to salsa dance. In the end, two teams face off, and one is eliminated.

The idea itself isn't bad. Changing someone's shallow judgment on national TV through a reality show sounds interesting. But the pure, undeniable stupidity of the female contestants takes away from the power that this show could have. Watching them fail a fifth grade geography test isn't funny, especially when the girls are in front of an audience. And the chemistry between a 'Geek' and a 'Beauty' is crushing to watch knowing that her adorable, lovable partner has a crush on her.

Some good lessons do come out of the show. Very early into the series, almost everyone has learned not to judge a book by its cover, and they are heartbroken at the thought of leaving each other. But it happens too early. The entire theme basically is destroyed, and we're bored again. In the end, it softens up on the Beauties and helps the Geeks with their less-than-adequate people skills. They all are left with some moral and educational lessons. And we're stuck wondering why such nice guys couldn't get dates before, regardless of how they look.

Though it might soften your superficial heart a little, it isn't as entertaining as it is cruel and embarrassing. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is better.
