Beauty and the Geek shocks with final makeovers: ‘Completely different’

This year’s season of Beauty and the Geek has officially come to an end, with 30-year-old train driver Aaron and 28-year-old hairdresser Karly taking out the crown and winning $100,000.

To kick off the final episode on Wednesday night, host Sophie Monk brought back all of the eliminated contestants to help decide which couple would win.

And while half of the Geeks left the show before receiving a makeover, they each returned to the show completely transformed.

First up was 20-year-old Japanese anime expert Nate, who looked barely recognisable with his long hair cut short and his beard shaved.


“You look amazing!” Sophie told him, to which he replied, “Thank you, I feel pretty alright too! It feels good to have some breeze on the back of my neck again”.

25-year-old e-sports champion Samuel was next to reunite with the cast, showing off his haircut, new wardrobe and smoother face without a moustache.

Alex, a 27-year-old bookworm and maths teacher, received enormous applause from his fellow contestants after unveiling his new appearance with a shorter ‘do and tanned complexion.

“Alex you’re so handsome!” Bri exclaimed as she wiped tears from her eyes, followed by Anthony who said he was “gobsmacked” by how much the Geeks had changed.

One of the biggest surprises of the night was when 24-year-old martial arts expert Jayden returned with a trimmed haircut, shaved face and glowing tan.

“Everyone better be prepared, they’ve got a new golden boy in town,” he said.

“Far out,” Sophie remarked. “You look like a completely different person. Did you look in the mirror and like what you saw?”

“I looked in the mirror and I was like, ‘Who’s this model?’,” he replied coyly.

'This show makes me so happy'

Fans on social media were just as surprised by the dramatic makeovers and praised the Geeks’ new appearances.

“OMGOODNESS the Geeks have all had a makeover!!! They look so good,” one person tweeted.

“This is the type of beauty pageant I’m living for,” another added, while a third simply said, “They are amazing”.

“All the returning geeks with a makeover off the show obviously went to the same place to get a spray tan,” a different user joked.

“Absolutely love this show,” someone else replied, followed by one fan who wrote, “This show makes me so happy”.

The returning Beauties and Geeks were tasked with choosing which pair they wanted to win the show, with Karly and Aaron taking out the title and $100,000.
