    In an outrageous and competitive twist for season five - it's beauties
versus geeks rather than the traditional beauty/geek teams. Nine gorgeous but
academically challenged women and nine brilliant but socially impaired men go
head to head in exciting new challenges, designed to test intellect and social
skills, in the hopes of winning the $250,000 grand prize. Among the new
challenges, look for the men to guest host a popular syndicated radio program
and test their fashion sense by 'making under' their female competitors. Plus,
the beauties get down and dirty in physical and technical challenges such as
cleaning clogged pipes. Both teams' acting skills are put to the test when
they take on cameo roles in a popular daytime drama. Each of the previous
seasons have resulted in an unlikely romantic connection between a beauty and
a geek, proving that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder - you never
know if this season will bring another love connection!
