Beauty and the Geek

Shawn and Scarlet

My favorite tv show remains the reality show "Beauty and the Geek". Re-runs can still be seen on MTV. This show has a certain charm because it throws a bunch of socially inept geeks in with a bunch of academically impaired beauties. I always wondered what it would be like to be with the cool kids. This show rang a bell with me.

Shawn Bakken had a blog until last month. Unfortunately he was the only one from Season 1 who let himself be accessable. I'm afraid he got a little frustrated with me at certain points because I started to turn his blog into a little like the USCF Forums. To say no more, we had vastly different opinions on Season 2 and Scarlet Garcia (his partner from Season 1).

I've written him since his blog disappeared and there's a chance that he may put in an appearance here.
