When reality shows get beyond the third season or so, they tend to need a twist to keep viewers engaged. Think about it: The Bachelor added The Bachelorette. Donald Trump took The Apprentice to L.A., etc...
So, it didn't really surprise me when last night's Beauty and the Geek announced a surprise (which they teased in true reality TV form for more than half of the two-hour premiere). The "beauty" and "geek" with the lowest scores during the first challenge got to pick the rest of the two-person teams. Brilliant! That totally changes the game.
Did you watch the Beauty and the Geek premiere? What did you think of the twist? Who is your favorite geek?
Stay tuned for today's bigTV premiere faceoff
, where you get to vote on which show you're most excited about seeing tonight.
