Beauty and the Geek

This show pairs up hot chicks with smart but socially retarded ugly guys. This looks to be the second season, and the cast of characters includes a guy who's about 5'1" and weighs 19 pounds. He's a museum critic. Another guy is a world champion blindfolded Rubik's cube solver. One of the chicks is a beer model, and I don't know the rest.

Anyhow, there are a bunch of really odd tasks that the people need to complete, and at the end of the show two male-female pairs have to go into a 12 question quiz show, where the winning team stays and the losers leave.

Q: "What do the initials G and Q stand for in GQ magazine?"
A: "Men's Fashion?"
Now, not only do those words not begin with the proper letters, there is a dearth of G's and Q's throughout the entire phrase. A random guess including the right letters would have been better. That's just absurd. The guy didn't know what Paul McCartney's daughter's name was. It's Stella, but I don't see how anyone on earth would care about that information.

After the show the news came on, and the first thing I noticed was the following headline:

Deadly cat fight.

This was actually a fight between 2 women over a cat, resulting in a death by stabbing to the neck.
