‘Geek’ Keeps His Country Style

NIPOMO, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You can take the geek out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the geek.

Joe Cortez was the latest “geek” to be eliminated from Beauty And The Geek last Tuesday (May 6), and although he had a great experience on the show, the city slicker makeover he was given just wasn’t his style.

Cortez – who’s from the countryside and enjoys wearing cowboy hats, Wranglers, boots, and Texas ties – was forced to ditch his duds for the sake of looking more chic.

But his country clothes are still secretly hanging in his closet.

He says, “I kept my cowboy clothes, but I’m working on mixing and matching them more with more stylish pieces. I’m bringing more palettes into my wardrobe. I’m going for a Maverick look these days and not so rodeo clown.”

But once a cowboy, always a cowboy.

Cortez says he may go back to his original giddy-up getup soon because rodeo season is right around the corner.

The season finale of Beauty And The Geek airs tomorrow (May 13) on The CW.
