‘Beauty And the Geek Australia’ Seeks Kiwis

‘Beauty And the Geek Australia’ is Giving Two Kiwis the Chance to Find Love


Beauty and the Geek Australia is coming back to our screens with its fifth season – but there’s a twist. For the very first time Shine Australia, the hit show’s producers, are casting in both Australia and New Zealand. Two lucky Kiwis will be thrown into the mix to compete for the big cash prize in Australia’s most awesome social experiment.

Big hearted beauties, put down your curling tongs and geeky guys, pack up that model plane. If you think you epitomise a New Zealand ‘Beauty’ or ‘Geek’ you could be perfect to represent us across the ditch and compete for the ultimate cash prize of $100 000 (AUD) and the coveted title of Beauty and the Geek champions of 2013.

The Beauties are vivacious, fun-loving girls who enjoy socialising and being the centre of attention. They’re preened and ready to take centre stage, but ask their opinion on politics, the solution to a mathematical equation, or how to reboot a hard drive and they’ll be stumped.


The Geeks are intellectual pin-ups. They love sci-fi, comics, gaming and computers. They are socially-awkward, conversationally-challenged and some are still waiting for their first kiss.

In each episode there will be difficult but hilarious challenges. Beauties will be challenged to find their inner geek by getting to understand the world of their partners. The Geeks will have to venture way out of their comfort zones as they try to learn the secrets of good grooming, appropriate conversation and successful social intercourse.

The winners of the challenges select two teams to compete against each other in an elimination quiz. The team with the least correct answers is eliminated.

Shine Australia’s Executive Producer Marty Benson says, “As a result of the success of Beauty and the Geek Australia in New Zealand it makes perfect sense to spread our casting net. I am really excited by this decision and look forward to meeting Beauties and Geeks across the Tasman."
