Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest geek of all? The world found out last week at the first-ever ’Sexiest Geek Alive’ pageant, held in Austin, TX.
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest geek of all? The
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.
