The "unusual" game of strip poker in Vegas should be interesting!!
Beauty And The Geek Returns To The WB
The WB's breakout hit reality show, "Beauty And The Geek," will return for its second installment on Thursday, January 12, (9:00-10:00 PM) with eight episodes, it was announced today by the network's President, Entertainment, David Janollari.
“Ashton and Jason have built a business out of producing unique, provocative television, and the second installment of ‘Geek’ delivers on all levels,” said Janollari. “Viewers will love this cast from the moment they see them, and having a show like this will also allow us to rest ‘Everwood’ so it can finish the season with a long stretch of original episodes. We also plan to double-pump ‘Geek’ in the Friday eight o'clock hour, a strong sampling opportunity that will also enable us to finish the season with a fresh string of ‘What I Like About You’ episodes.”
The producing team of Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg (“Punk'd”) recruited a new group of eight women who are academically impaired and eight men who are brilliant but socially challenged. The second installment will remain true to the series' first season format, pairing up couples for a chance to win a $250,000 grand prize. This time, however, each mismatched pair competes in brand new activities designed to test intellect, fashion savvy and social skills. The guys are assigned to makeover a room, while the girls do their best to assemble a computer. There's a karaoke session for the men, and a political debate for the ladies. The girls also do a makeover on the guys, then let them test out their new looks during a session of speed-dating. Finally, the whole group travels to Las Vegas for a highly unusual game of strip-poker.
During these competitions, the geek tries to pass his brains on to the beauty, while the beauty tries to turn the geek into a hottie. At the end, each contestant comes out a changed person, and everyone has their eyes on the prize of $250.000.
