Beauty And The Geek fans rejoice, we’ve finally got our first look at the show’s wholesome new season led once again by host Sophie Monk.

With a fresh batch of suitably nerdy Geeks eager to be paired with a stunning set of new Beauties, it looks like romance is in the air again this season.

In a trailer released by Nine, two contestants appear to share a kiss – which may even be a first for the Geek involved, as one tells the camera, “I haven’t had a first kiss.”

Sophie can feel the sparks flying too, the blonde bombshell exclaiming in one moment: “Wow… I can feel the chemistry from here!”

Of course, there will be plenty of challenges and unusual antics too – after all, this isn’t technically a dating show.

In one shot Geeks prepare for battle in tanks before beauties cheer in colourful and form-fitting outfits, while another shows a couple share a smooch in medieval armour.

Meanwhile, Sophie dropped an F-bomb over a malfunctioning smoke gun and one Beauty quips: “My boobs are DDs, so they each weigh the size of a fully grown chicken.”

We even got a tiny peek at the makeovers, which are always a huge highlight of the show.

“You look so sexy,” one Beauty tells her made-over Geek through tears, before another Geek tells his partner: “I love you. And I’m not leaving you behind.”

Fans are still waiting on a premiere date and more details about the show’s new season, which will be its second since the series was rebooted on Nine last year.

Fan-favourites Lachlan Mansell and Kiera Johnstone won the 2021 season and told TV WEEK that they wouldn’t be opposed to returning in the new seasons as mentors for new Beauties and Geeks.

“I’d absolutely love to do that, bring it on,” Lachy told TV WEEK exclusively while appearing at the 2022 TV WEEK Logie Awards.

They also confessed that though they didn’t find love with each other on the show, it certainly opened them up to romance.

“I’ve got a boyfriend now, I met him right before the show aired!” she revealed.

Lachie joked: “I have been inundated, I’ve got lots of girls sliding into my DMs. I’ve been on quite a few dates which has been really good, so just having fun.”

The pair added that they have remained close friends with the rest of the 2021 Beauty And The Geek cast, something we hope to see happen for the 2022 cast too.

“Everyone’s got a really good friendship and I think that’s the nature of the show… you form those really nice friendships that last forever,” Kiera said.
