As reality dating shows go, "Beauty and the Geek" has always been one of the sweeter ones. But I still wouldn't give it too much thought if not for a special new twist this year: One geeky girl and one jock guy will be introduced into the house to shake things up. Thank goodness — finally, a smart chick on one of these things! (The CW, by the way, doesn't want us to see their faces till tonight's premiere — that's them blurred out there on the right.) Maybe someday we'll get a dating show with all smart girls and hottie guys, but until then, I suppose I can settle for this small nod to the brainy gals among us.
Also on tap for this season, which starts with a special two-hour episode: the beauties teaching third grade, the geeks performing an autobiographical rap in a crowded club, and — of course — the contest for Prom King. Will any of you be indulging in some "Beauty and the Geek" this fall? To watch a preview,
