By Christopher Rocchio, 08/27/2007
The CW has revealed the identities of the 10 guys and 10 gals competing on Beauty and the Geek's fourth season, which is scheduled to premiere with a special two-hour episode on Tuesday, September 18 at 8PM ET/PT.
While Beauty and the Geek 4 will center around the same "gorgeous but academically impaired" women and "brilliant but socially challenged" men format as the show's first three seasons, the upcoming Fall 2007 edition will also feature a new twist -- the inclusion of one hunky guy and one nerdy girl.
In addition, Beauty and the Geek 4 is the first to feature a cast of 20 who will be paired into 10 teams, as the first edition of the Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg created "social experiment" paired 14 contestants into seven teams and the last two installments coupled 16 contestants into eight teams.
However similar to all three previous editions of the show, Beauty and the Geek 4's "beauty" and "geek" teams will compete in a series of intellectual and social skill challenges. Among the season's "geek" challenges will be a performance of an autobiographical rap in a nightclub as well as a "Prom King" competition. "Beauty" challenges will include an "American Beauty" debate and serving as a substitute teacher for a third-grade class. The final remaining team will win the $250,000 grand prize.
Mike Richards will return to host Beauty and the Geek 4, which is from fox21 and is produced by Katalyst Films and 3 Ball Productions with Nick Santora, J.D. Roth and Todd A. Nelson serving as executive producers along with Kutcher and Goldberg.
