‘Beauty And The Geek’ Blonde Says Her Brains Were Her Downfall

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – On Ashton Kutcher’s new reality show, Beauty and the Geek, the beauties aren’t supposed to have the brains.

But beauty Erika Rumsey, who was booted off the show during last night’s episode (Jun. 8), says it was her smarts that led to her downfall in the competition.

The Iowa native, who has modeled as a life-size Barbie at toy store appearances, graduated with a double major in broadcasting and communications after only three years of classes at Des Moines’ Grand View College.

Rumsey says it was only after her competition got wind of her academic accomplishments that they wanted to eliminate her because she posed too big of a threat, brain-wise.

Although she admits to being the queen of airheaded “blonde moments,” Rumsey says, “I think it’s possible to be intelligent and flighty.”

So which category does Rumsey think Kutcher fits into, beauty or geek? She says definitely geek because “geeks aren’t nerds, they’re just smart guys and Ashton is brilliant.”
