The CW debuts the fourth season of Beauty and the Geek tonight at 8 p.m. ET, and for the first time, the show will flip its formula, although only slightly.
The 20 cast members include nine dumb hot girls and nine smart geek guys–and one hot guy and one geek girl. The CW has Sam and Nicole’s faces blurred on their web site, but Nicole Morgan, a Tufts University student, told the Boston Herald, “What I found when I came in was I was really intimidated by the beauties. I felt completely overwhelmed. In my one-on-one interactions, I found we had common experiences and feelings.”
The paper identifies Sam as Sam Horrigan, who The CW says is a 26-year-old “party promoter.” Perhaps coincidentally, or not, there’s a 26-year-old actor named Sam Horrigan who has appeared on shows such as Veronica Mars and One Tree Hill, both of which aired on The CW.
