The makeover episode of Beauty and the Geek is always the most popular of the series — check out Helen and Lachlan’s transformations on BellaSugar! Last night’s episode also featured an interesting twist that saw the geeks go on half-hour dates with other geeks. It gave them an opportunity to have some “educational” (in the words of Julian) getting-to-know-you time with people of the opposite sex who had common interests, as their beauties served as waiters on the night. And then there was a twist! Host Bernard Curry informed the geeks that they had the opportunity to switch their good-looking competition partners for their geeky dates, which led some of the guys — particularly Gilbert and Jimmy — to make a tough decision.
Jimmy, who has been struggling with his beauty Mackenzie, called it “one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make.” Gilbert has similarly had issues with his partner, Maddy, but in the end, both geeks stayed loyal to their girls. Do you think they should’ve given their partners the flick for girls they have more in common with, or did they make the right decision?
