Last night while flipping channels Subho ran into the newest form of urban stupidity - Beauty and the Geek. I believe this idiotic monstrosity has already enjoyed one season and now comes back with the greatest of mimbos - Ashton Kutcher, at the helm of affairs. So the basic premise is that eight beautiful but dumb women and eight brainy but not brawny men are put up in a house with a hot tub. The girls try to get the boys into the hot tub, the girls show off their perfectly toned bodies on TV, they even get one last chance at improving their IQ's and tickling their grey cells and the guys....now that is the question? What do the guys get out of it? Lets see...they get to show off their less than perfect bodies, they get to preen around the hot tub, they get to have by lines like "Never kissed a woman"/"Never been on a date" flash everytime they appear on screen. Now why would a Mensa member sign up for derision at the hands of a blonde flibbertygibbet? Low self esteem..naah. Death wish - more like it.
Don't they have the wondrous example of that geek of all geeks to follow? Doesn't every bubble headed cheerleader who mocked him in high school wish she had treated him better while she waits table at the local diner? And why, oh why does it have to be Beauty and the Geek? What about brainy women and cowboys sharing space on the idiot box on a show called Athena and the Cowboy?
