‘Beauty and the Geek’ Eliminee Garners Fan Following

CAROL STREAM, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Beauty and the Geek cast-off Erin Schneider may have been kicked off the show, but she’s still a local celebrity in the Midwest.

Schneider – who was given the boot from the competition this past Tuesday (Oct. 23) – says ever since her season of Beauty and the Geek began airing, people in her hometown of Carol Stream, Illinois, and the surrounding Midwest states have been recognizing her from the show.

She says, “More and more people have been coming up to me on the streets to say hi and I’ve been getting a lot of messages on MySpace. The other day I went to a local high school football game and there were like 25 kids following me around. They were so cute!”

Schneider’s reality TV fans have even put her to work.

She explains, “I went to Iowa University to party with some friends recently and some people at a bar recognized me and asked me to go behind the bar and bartend. It was really fun!”

Beauty and the Geek airs Tuesdays on The CW.
