EPIC. That’s the only way I can describe the premier episode of Beauty and the Geek Australia.
I was going to write a full episode recap, but I realized that if you missed the first episode you can view it on the official website http://au.tv.yahoo.com/beauty-and-the-geek-australia/video/ Plus writing a full episode recap takes forever, and I am a busy man. So I will try and just write juicy inside gossip which will hopefully add to the Beauty and Geek experience.
I have to say that I have fallen in love with every single Beauty and Geek for different reasons. Maybe it’s because I know what they are going through. But I do have favourites. I think that Ellynie-May is just really switched on and I think that she will be able to help a lot of Geeks. There is just something so cool and laidback about her. I was really surprised when she got both her questions wrong in the elimination quiz. I picked her as the most intelligent of the Beauties. Maybe the nerves just got to her. Because of nerves, I could barely stand up when I was in the elimination room for the first time last year against Toby and Jenna. Emma literally had to hold on to me for dear life to stop me falling over. I think that everyone in Australia have totally warmed to George as well. His country boy, Aussie accent just makes you smile and everything that comes out of his mouth is just Golden. Plus he likes rocks. Well said.
But we had to say farewell to Nicola and Stuart last night. I was really disappointed because I thought that Nicola was going to be really funny to watch. After seeing her work in some of the commercials I thought that Australia was going to be in for a treat. She just does what she does, enjoys it, and does not care what anyone thinks of her. It’s a great attitude to have. And Stuart, I was completely wrong about. He was also really sweet too. I have been in email contact with Stuart and he is a top bloke! But I have to took my own horn and say that before the first episode went to air, and before the partners were selected, I picked Stuart to be the first one out.
I am glad that they showed the tie-breaker question this year. I may get in trouble for saying this, but the finale last year of Emma and I against Corin and Lisa actually went to two tie breaker questions! I think that the pressure of the situation got to Stuart. The number of songs mentioned in the Madonna song Vogue. I thought in one 3-4 minute song you could not fit that many names in. After Marlon say 30 (from memory) the smart thing for Stuart to say would have been 29 as surely 30 is too many, and then Stuart would be the closest. But no point dwelling on the past. What was meant to be was meant to be.
But I think that there must be some internal house politics which I am looking forward to discuss in a later blog.
