Perth part-time nanny Gaia has a specific goal in mind for her time in the Beauty and the Geek Australia mansion.
"I love shopping and all that sort of stuff but hopefully out of this I can find something deeper to be interested about," she
says. "Like more of a less superficial kind of interest."
But to accomplish that goal she's after a particular type of geek to help open her eyes to the wider world.
"I want one with like a few degrees or something. A real smart one," she says.
Gaia says she has learnt to be assertive through her work and is hoping to rub some of this confidence off onto the geeks.
"Cause they're all going to be pretty shy, I'll teach them how to be a bit louder and more social and stuff. And try to have
fun. I'm pretty fun."
And Gaia doesn't want the geeks to feel insecure around the beauties.
"I don't want them to think that, like, any girls are better than them because everyone's the same. At the end of the day, they've
probably got more going on 'cause they're like, you know, smarter and stuff, so it's not all about looks and stuff like that.
"Cause once the girls have no make-up on, I'm pretty sure they'll be feeling pretty bad."
But what this Year 10 school dropout really fears is academic challenges.
"My biggest fears are mainly maths and all that sort of science and stuff. Like, I just have no idea. I think the last
science I studied in school I got eight per cent. I don't even know how that's possible - I think I got half a question right."
Gaia says her biggest asset is her positive attitude. "I try to be positive 'cause I think if you're positive it makes
life a lot easier," she says. This single girl hasn't ruled out finding her dream dateinside the house – well, kind of.
"I like guys who are fit and smart and hot and like the whole package," she says.
