Description

This online article from the Perth Now website describes the fourth season finale show of TV programme Beauty & the Geek Australia, from which contestants Chard and Millie emerged as winners. Pursuing a ‘happily ever after’ fairytale theme, the article explains, the first part of the show ‘involved a series of medieval challenges’ – namely jousting and reciting sonnets – for which the couples dressed up as knights and princesses. This was followed by a masquerade ball. Beauty & the Geek was broadcast in Australia in 2012 by the Channel 7 network.
