Beauty and the Geek (2005)
Seasons One and Two were good, but Season Three, not so much
I was excited to see that the newly-formed CW network was keeping "Beauty and the Geek", because I liked watching it on the WB. However, what it has devolved into makes me wish I hadn't wasted my time.
The first two seasons were kind of cute, with the dudes not quite sure how to respond to the pretty girls. Though there were a couple of "ringers" in the bunch (ringers: someone pretending to be a geek when they really weren't, i.e., Season One "Geek" winner Chuck), the geeks were totally believable and the girls did their best to be helpful and friendly, even if it was only in the spirit of winning.
The third season makes me ill. The girls have turned this season into a junior high school bullying situation, with Cece (Cecille)and JennyLee verbally attacking their female competitors, and JennyLee verbally attacking her "Geek" partner. Not only that, but the previews show it will continue and in fact, get worse. It's really turned into a situation similar to MTV's "Real World/Road Rules Challenges", in which people immediately decide to fight, even if it is just verbally, rather than to play the game.
If you can catch the first two seasons, then check them out. The current season is not worth the effort.
