Beauty and the Geek is billed as a social experiment, and it looks like it pays off in spades for one geek as he hooks up with a beauty. Erika, the life-size Barbie model, winds up falling for Brad, the Mensa member. Unfortunately, for Brad and Erika they are on different teams so one of them will have to get eliminated before the other.
In the Wednesday, June 8, 2005 episode, the challenge for the beauties is to change a tire and change the oil in a car. Caitilin winds up winning the challenge and earns the right to nominate a team for the elimination challenge. The challenge for the geeks is that they have to give a massage to the bikini-clad beauties (which evidently is a very frightening challenge for the geeks). Chuck’s medical training pays off for him and he wins the massage challenge and also the right to nomitnate a team for the elimination challenge.
Chuck and Caitilin hand Erika and Brad their worst nightmare and nominate the teams of Erika & Joe and Brad & Krystal for elimination. Evidently geeks can’t stand to see other geeks scoring with beauties so Chuck sets it up to break up the romance. The beauties perform very well in the elimination challenge and answer all their questions correctly. It comes down to Brad vs. Joe, and Brad comes out the winner. Erika and Joe are eliminated from the Beauty and the Geek.
