IT'S one of the most popular reality TV franchises on television, but in its four short seasons, Beauty and The Geek has attracted its fair share of scandals.
Daniel Iachini was outed by friends as being too cool to be a geek. Series-three geek Adam Marshall is the latest contestant to hit the headlines, after becoming embroiled in a month court battle to win back his job with the Bureau of Meteorology.
Marshall was sacked in July last year after he appeared on the reality show during sick leave from work for anxiety and stress. Federal Magistrate Dominica Whelan ordered the BOM to re-hire him in his role as a remote area weather observer and backpay his salary. But Marshall is not the only geek - or beauty - to cause a stir.
Here are just some of the scandals that have hit the headlines:. Despite being presented as a bookish "historian" on the Channel 7 dating contest, Devenyi-Botos, who has a string of theater and short-film credits to his name, confessed that he signed up to the program to boost his acting career.
