Beauty and the Geek?

I have been watching Beauty and the Geek this season and have become a fan… however, this past week I discovered from a trustworthy source, that one of the “geeks” is not a real geek. Apparently, this “geek” was a varsity soccer player AND dated a cheerleader. I don’t know how you guys define “geek” but that sure doesn’t sound like one to me….

I have always had this suspicion that the show “geekifies” the geeks in order to make their transformation more dramatic. This can also be referred to as the “She’s All That” effect. My theory is that the show has a lot of incentive to do this in order to make the show more entertaining and improve the possiblity of a geek & beauty romance which apparently also happens in the first season. Coincidence? I think not.

Anyway, I still am going to watch the show, but it is not as cool as I thought it was.
