Beauty And The Geek Australia Season 8: Release Date, Cast, Prize Money

Beauty And The Geek Australia Season 8: Release Date, Cast, Prize Money

It's only a few more sleeps before the latest batch of beauties and geeks try to find love.

Fans of the heartwarming reality series can now rest easy, after an announcement from the Nine Network that Beauty and the Geek will be returning to our screens on Sunday, July 17 at 7:00pm on Channel 9.

Hosted once again by Sophie Monk, this season will showcase 10 new beauties and 10 new geeks, as life changing connections are formed and worlds collide. 

Set around a series of challenges, couples must fight to score one-on-one dates to help them learn more about one another and, as we saw in last season, develop adorable, romantic bonds. 

The final couple, as voted by the other Beauties and Geeks, are crowned the winners of Beauty and the Geek, and walk away with $100,000 in prize money (as well as important life lessons, of course).

The teaser trailer released by the Nine Network hinted at potential romances coming our way this season.

According to Nine, this season’s Beauties include dancers, hairdressers, and a professional mermaid, while the Geeks include a trainspotter, a Harry Potter mega fan, a martial arts ninja and a crypto trader.

However, the names and personal details of the contestants are yet to be released.

While the trailer teased some of the humorous moments awaiting us on July 17, like one of the Beauties saying 'my boobs are DDs, so they each weigh the size of a fully grown chicken', the trailer also highlighted this season’s romantic elements.

One Geek dramatically tells his Beauty: "I love you. And I'm not leaving you behind."

Another couple share a passionate kiss in medieval attire (because what else would they be wearing?)

Host Sophie Monk said 'there are some major sparks flying around this season. It will be the sweetest thing you'll ever see'.

Monk also told Nine: "I've never felt so passionate about a reality show and I'm so excited for the new season to start.

"Not only does it make you laugh your arse off, it will also make you cry.
