Four years on from his time on dating show Beauty and the Geek, George only has good things to say about the experience. He says the producers represented him accurately, he made many new friends, and the show helped him overcome his shyness. Reality television romances have been in the media spotlight since The Bachelor star Blake Garvey broke up with competition winner Sam Frost and began a relationship with third-placed contestant Louise Pillidge.
George says while he is not familiar with The Bachelor, and has not watched television for several months, in his experience reality television was the "real deal". After filming ended, George returned to his job in Winton and says unlike some reality television contestants, he did not struggle with the return to real life.
George says he is still often recognised for his time on the show, with many people wanting to discuss his experience and his thoughts on the other contestants. He is now in a relationship with a Winton local and says he plans to stay in western Queensland for the long term. Road through the Mitchell grass. The last two geeks standing would then have to protect their beauties from falling over.
Afterwards the geeks paired up with their beauty to choreograph and perform a cheerleading routine, with the top two couples having to compete with a professional cheerleading team. The couple with the best photo would appear on the cover of the Famous magazine, and the geek of this couple as well as the couple that came second in the challenge would receive a makeover. After Lachlan and Helen's makeover, each of the geeks went out on a date with a female geek male for Helen specifically chosen to match their interests, with the beauties having to serve them as waitresses. Afterwards they were given a choice; they had the chance to swap their beauty for their geeky date.
After a lot of controversy, none of the geeks turned in their beauty for their date.
As a treat there was no elimination for that week. The geeks introduced their partner as they came out, and the beauties then had to describe the powers that their superhero had. Following this challenge the remaining four geeks who didn't have makeovers the previous week had their turn, with some amazing results. Using their new look they participated in a "Full Monty Challenge", involving each of them to perform a short dance dressed as The Village People at a local club with a big finale involving them stripping down to their underwear.
Each time they misspelled a word their geek would receive an electric shock, and if they got the same word wrong twice in a row they would be knocked out of the challenge. The geeks then took part in a biker race, which had the beauties construct a bike and sidecar for their geeks to ride in, with the first beauty to finish giving their geek an advantage in the race.
The geeks were to carry members of the HOGS motorcycle gang in the sidecar, with the geek whose partner finished building the bike first having the advantage of carrying the lightest biker, and the heaviest biker riding in the bike of the geek whose partner finished last. After the race the geeks were offered immunity; the first geek to step forward to have their beauty's name tattooed on their body would go through to next week. Lachlan took the challenge much to everyone's surprise, getting Sarah's name tattooed on his buttocks and consequently causing much drama in the house.
Later the previously eliminated geeks who did not have the chance to get makeovers re-entered the house, with each of the geeks still in the competition giving them makeovers with a time limit of two hours. The beauties then voted on which made over geek had the biggest improvement, unaware as to which who made over which geek.
However, a twist was introduce so that the two winning couples of the week Gilbert and Jacelle in the Mustering Maths challenge, and Jimmy and Mackenzie in the style challenge had the power to nominate a couple to return to the mansion, instead of nominating a couple to be eliminated. While they were sketching her, the model kept talking casually about mundane things in her life much to their annoyance, and was generally being very distracting. However, at the end of the challenge they were told that they were not being assessed on how good their artwork is, but how much they listened, and so they were quizzed on things the model said.
Afterwards the beauties had to work with their geek to find a figure or icon that represents the "London Look", which the beauty then had to dress up as and represent in a beauty pageant. The couple with the lowest average grade was eliminated, and the remaining three couples would attend the school formal.
At the school formal the geeks would stand in a kissing booth and the beauties had to advertise their geeks to other people attending the formal. The couples then participated in a dance battle, and following these two challenges all the attendees had to vote on which couple had the strongest bond. The top two couples from this challenge then went to the elimination room for the final time where the scores were so tight that two tie-breaker rounds were held.
The fourth season began airing on 4 October This season saw some changes, including the theme song. In addition to winning the regular prize, the winner will receive two Holden Barina per one for each winning team member. Also, the nominations and eliminations room were expanded into a bigger size. This season's big twist was that one of the geeks is a secret millionaire, and in week 3 this was revealed to be Nathan.
It was also Bernard Curry's last series as a host. In the grand final of Beauty and the Geek Australia season 4, it involved both the beauties and the geeks to dress as if they are medieval times.
Their challenges included the geeks' ability to save their princesses by climbing a rock climbing wall and the beauties having to recite a sonnet and kiss a frog. Kristy and Jason were eliminated after this. The next lot of couples then attended a ball in which the couples had to tell the audience about their time in the mansion together while also dancing in a ballet together.
Chontelle and Cody were eliminated in this challenge which then left Millie and Chard versus Dane and Alin to compete for the prize.
In the final round of Beauty and the Geek, the couples went up against each other in a quiz to see which couple knew the most about each other. The twist in Season 5 saw 9 beauties and 8 geeks sent to live on a tropical island with no mansion and no luxuries. An extra beauty, Courtenay, joined the team of Alex and Bella after Alex won the first challenge.
This season also had two New Zealand contestants, Bella and Zac, as was advertised earlier in the year.
