    So I read that 'Beauty & the Geek' got cancelled...Too bad...It's one of the few good 'reality' shows.

    From what I've read the show hasn't been completely cancelled, just on a break until they can think up a new way of doing the show. Obviously the format from the early part of this latest season wasn't quite to everyone's taste...

    Aww that sucks. It wasnt one of my favorites shows, but it was a fun show to watch when I was bored lol. I didnt think it was doing too badly though, Im sure the whole beautys vs geeks thing lost viewers in the beginning, but then I thought theyd tune back in once it changed.

    It was better in the earlier seasons, it was a guilty please of mine too. (IVYYYYYYYYY!) It was starting to get repetitive and boring and it was time for it to go. It'll be missed by some, but not by me.

    The series got significantly worse after season 2. Every season ended up with someone similar to CeCe and the show simply lost all of its charm. It became more of a whine and moan series filled with drama, instead of its original intentions.

    i'll really miss it i loved this show because it was something a lot different than most reality shows out there... it gave a chance for people to completely step out of their comfort zone and actually change their lives and other peoples'! plus it was just ridiculously entertaining.

    Its going to go for the season finale next week, but in case theres a new season, on ABC theres a SIMILAR show called 'True Beauty'. Its like this show except the guys are "beauties" as well as the girls and there's no "geeks". But the contestants dont know they are being judged by their inner beauty and they are even more cocky than they are on this show! Its very entertaining and I like it alot. Just thought people may want to know.

    But I seriously think they should put this back on. No this wasnt my fave show but it was still pretty decent and its on the CW (right?) whos ALWAYS hurting for ratings, so what could it hurt? Its just weird because Ive seen other shows do way worse and are still on the air so...IDK...*shrugs*
