Beauty and the Geek Australia is an Australian reality television series on the Seven Network hosted by Bernard Curry. It is based on the US version Beauty and the Geek created by Ashton Kutcher.

The premise of the show consists of a group of "Beauties" (young women who have relied primarily on their looks) and a group of "Geeks" (young men who have relied primarily on intellect rather than social aptitude or looks) are paired up to compete as teams for a shared major prize package and other prizes.
