Beauty and the Geek: Season Six of TV Show to be ”Celebrity Edition”

Beauty and the GeekTimes are tough so there’ll certainly be fewer electronic gizmos sitting under the tree this year. However, it looks like MTV is planning a special gift for the geeks of the world. Their reality show is being revived with a “celebrity” twist.

Beauty and the Geek began running on the WB network in 2005 and made the transition to the CW network in 2007. The TV show’s produced by Fox 21, Katalyst Films and 3 Ball Prods. with executive producers including Ashton Kutcher, Jason Goldberg and Nick Santora.

The series was initially hosted by Total Request Live’s Brian McFayden and Mike Richards took over after season one. The reality show matches up a socially-challenged intellectuals with intellectually-challenged ladies. They live together during the competition and a couple is eliminated each week following various challenges. The ultimate winners take home a cash prize.

The reality show’s fifth season ratings didn’t measure up to the CW’s expectations so Beauty was cancelled. It was suggested that the series could return after a suitable hiatus and that it might undergo some retooling.

Do you like the "celebrity" idea?

A couple months ago, we reported that casting was already underway for a sixth season. The Beauty producers are still looking for the usual selection of intelligent and quirky males. They’re recruiting for the “ultimate social experiment” in various cities across the country. The casting notices haven’t mentioned the ladies though and now, we know why.

As suspected, there’s new twist this time around. The sixth season will be a “celebrity” edition of the reality show and the females will be made up of semi-famous beauties. Don’t expect the likes of Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan though. The female players will be made up of former contestants from other reality shows and Playboy playmates.

Though no start date has been announced for the next season, it looks like they’ll be airing on MTV. The cable channel, of course, is no stranger to the series as it’s frequently aired reruns of past seasons. Stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page

    Season 5 did bad because of poor retooling. What channel will season 6 be on? Celebrity can be good, but usually is the death of a show.

    I really enjoy the show as it was when it first came out. If the producers want to try different things then try having all the women be geeks and the men beauties. I look forward to seeing what the next season is going to bring. I hope that the show is not changed too much. I love the idea behind the show as it started.

    I don’t think your votes are accurate. The dots you click to vote are out of whack. The yes dot is above the maybe is next to yes and the no is next to maybe. what’s going on there. I don’t care who the people are I want to know when season 6 will be aired. Don’t make me wait any longer :-)
