  • Natalie plots revenge on Blair by setting her up with the school nerd.

    10
    This is the best episode of Season 3. An episode with substance and form. This episode is made special because it deals with a subject everyone can identify with. A teenager who is teased because of his \"nerdy\" qualities and because of his looks. The lesson here is that \"beauty is only skin deep\" to use a cliche\' but it works well here. A superior episode on all counts. Everyone is in top form here and Dan Frischman is extremely appealing as Carl \"Rocky\" Price, the nerd who is the victim of a cruel joke.moreless
