‘Geek’ Discovered At Comic Book Convention

SHADYSIDE, Ohio (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Attending a comic book convention started a new chapter in one Beauty and the Geek contestant’s life.

‘Geek’ Mario Muscar – who was kicked off the show this past Wednesday (Jan. 31) – says he found out about the show when he was minding his own business at a comic book convention and an agent approached him.

Says Muscar: “I wasn’t offended that they came up to me – I mean they picked a great place to scout for geeks.”

Muscar has been collecting comics since he was young, and now has more than 25,000 of them – something partner “Beauty” Nadia Underwood couldn’t understand.

As he puts it, “The first day we were talking about pop culture and she was like, ‘Ewww, I HATE comic books.’ It was a little awkward since she didn’t know the whole reason I got on the show was because I was the comic book guy.”
