Beauty And The Geek is finally returning to Aussie TV screens, the beloved reality show hitting the airwaves in just under two weeks for its huge premiere.

After a seven-year hiatus the show will be returning to Channel Nine with an all new cast of bombshell “beauties” and brainy “geeks” – and a new host.

Sophie Monk has taken on the task of hosting the show, which is set to premiere on Sunday July 11 at 7pm on Channel Nine.

Sophie will be front an centre this season as 10 beauties and 10 geeks they take on challenges in the latest incarnation of the series.

And will they find love along the way? Or even score the reward of forming a tight-knit friendship with someone they wouldn’t normally cross paths with? Only time will tell.

Among the beauties taking part are a professional theme park princess, a vivacious tanning and gym lover, a red carpet reporter and a criminology student and model.

Meanwhile, the geeks include a maths teacher, an ER doctor/wrestling fan, a motorsport fanatic and a law graduate.

They’ll all battle it out in a bid to be the last pair standing with the winning couple taking home the much coveted prized of $100,000.

“A lot has changed since Beauty And The Geek was last on our screens,” host Sophie said.

“Today, geeks run the world and beauties are far more than just a pretty face. I can’t wait for audiences to watch on as they embark on a journey of self-discovery and see if we’re able to answer the age-old question – can opposites attract?”

Channel Nine previously shared a sneak peek at the show the network is describing as “the most uplifting, feel-good show of the year.”

And former Bachelorette Sophie couldn’t hide her excitement about its return.

10 “geeks” will be paired with 10 “beauties” as they team up in a bid to win a $100,000 prize.

“I can’t even 🙈 this show is sooo entertaining with so much comedy you’ll laugh and with so much heart you’ll cry,” she said.

“It’ll be your favourite show EVER! I promise. ( and I’ve experienced some reality shows in my time) this won’t disappoint you. Hand on my heart.”

Beauty and the Geek premieres Sunday July 11 at 7pm on Channel Nine and Nine Now.
