world found out last week at the first-ever ’Sexiest Geek Alive’

pageant, held in Austin, TX.



The 12 finalists, chosen from more than 18,000 applicants, were to be

evaluated on their brains, personality and hi-tech savvy. The ability to

answer questions in Klingon dialect was considered a plus, we hear.



’The judges will be instructed that looks are not a part of this,’ said

pageant creator (and PR pro) Steve Phenix, who added, ’the biggest, most

attractive sexual organ is definitely the brain.’ Hey - check out the

medulla oblongata on her!



Hi-tech has gone from geek to chic, as evidenced by the interest the

pageant has received from media outlets such as Good Morning America,

USA Today and The Montel Williams Show.



’It’s a unisex brains pageant, not a beauty pageant,’ said Phenix, the

PR director of ClubCastLive, which Webcast the event. Ever the PR pro,

Phenix appeared on GMA wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with his company’s

URL. One producer worried about the shameless plug, but then decided

that the shirt was germane to the geekiness of the day.
