Somehow I watched 3 episodes of a "Beauty and the Geek" Marathon today. I first started watching because nothing else was on, but after a few minutes I was sucked in. The premise is that a beauty and a geek are paired up and they compete against other teams of beauties and geeks, and a team is eliminated at the end of each episode. Seems simple, but I must say there seems to be some value to the nonsense! What sucked me in was seeing how they evolved and through adversity became friends by breaking down commonly held stereotypes of geeks, and uber-pretty people.
I even found myself hoping that at least one beauty would like one of the geeks and they would live happily ever after. The reality is that the beauties look at there geeks like there cute, helpless puppies. Unfortunately for the geeks, nobody wants to hook up with puppies!
There were many funny geeky lines, but this is the one I remember.
BEAUTY: Why do you have a roll of ducktape on your belt?
GEEK: You never know when you'll need ducktape. It's like the force; dark on one side, light on the other, and it holds the universe together.
