"BEAUTY AND THE GEEK" RETURNS FOR A FOURTH SEASON WITH NEW TWISTS ON TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18

THE CW's HIT SOCIAL EXPERIMENT BREAKS THE MOLD BY INTRODUCING A GEEKY GIRL AND HUNKY GUY ON THE FOURTH SEASON PREMIERE

(Burbank, CA) August 27, 2007 - From the producing team of Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg ("Punk'd"), The CW's hit reality show "Beauty and the Geek" returns with an outrageously fun fourth season, where the new contestants are thrown a curveball that is as shocking as it is hilarious. The two-hour premiere kicks off the network's fall season on Tuesday, September 18 (8:00-10:00 p.m. ET).

The contestants had expected business as usual - gorgeous but academically impaired women paired with brilliant but socially challenged men to test intellect and social skills for a chance to win the $250,000 grand prize. But in their first days, they learn they have to compete against one pair that's the complete opposite - a hot guy and a geeky girl - which immediately throws the rest of the house into turmoil.

Among the new challenges, the geeks will perform an autobiographical rap in a nightclub and participate in the ultimate social test: the competition for Prom King. The beauties will delve into today's hot topics for the first-ever American Beauty Debate and go back to basics when they find themselves serving as a substitute teacher for a third-grade class. Each of the previous seasons resulted in an unlikely romantic connection between a beauty and a geek. But what happens when one hot guy and one geeky girl get in on the action?
