Transform your brand with Beauty and the Geek

Beauty and the Geek: A new season with a whole lot of heart

The 2021 Beauty and the Geek reboot, hosted by beautiful and self-confessed dork Sophie Monk, returned to screens with all the fun of the original series and a new layer of heart and warmth. Audiences fell in love with the show all over again.

Beauty and the Geek is a modern day romantic comedy, but it's real....

With an open mind and an open heart, Beauty and the Geek is full of emotion, laughter, fun, and maybe even a little bit of true love.

Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to expect from this season…

A journey of self discovery, in search of true love and lifelong friendship...

Shining a light on the bridging of the divide, the 2021 season of Beauty and the Geek smashed through the preconceptions of traditional stereotypes.

The 10 beauties and 10 geeks worked together through a series of real-life challenges in the search to find a romantic spark or a lifelong friendship. Surprising connections were made as two very different worlds collided and strong partnerships bloomed in the most unlikely and sometimes hilarious circumstances.

The beauties opened their eyes and hearts to new possibilities as they helped the geeks find their voice, and in return learnt a thing or two from the geeks about stepping outside of their comfort zones.

Programming that connects


In a shifting, consolidating landscape, programming that connects with Australians wherever they are represents the closest thing to a sure bet for brands. The same is true for publishers.

“Investing in Australian content that reflects the stories of Australians back to our audience, that’s our point of difference,” says Hamish Turner, Nine's Director of Programming. “Live audience, audience at scale that consumes content in a temporal manner, and Australian stories, they are the four big things for us – and that won’t change.”

Nine’s slate for the rest of the year reflects that commitment – returning favourites such as The Block and Australian Ninja Warrior, and five newly commissioned shows that will bridge this year into next. All different, but “all very ‘integratable’,” says Turner, giving brands further avenues to explore, and “diversity utility”. Which may prove useful in a world likely to be disrupted by Covid for some time yet.
