"I have rarely been disappointed in life. Life is amazing and I'm lucky to be here."
As a chess and scrapbooking fan, Kiwi Beauty Kristy might have more in common with the Geeks than the other girls.
Admitting her Dad taught her how to play chess in primary school, she is profound on the benefits of the game.
"We used to always have battles in chess. And it's good for your brain, it makes you think. I don't play it as often as I should but I do enjoy it," she says.
In fact, outdoorsy natural Beauty Kristy credits her father for a lot of her interests including a love of sport and marine activities.
"He had three girls, so I think he tried to make us more like boys. But I'm still girly as well. I still like shopping, nails, hair and make-up and all that."
With childhood dreams of being a marine biologist, Kristy says a lack of interest in her schoolwork meant she has yet to realise her dream.
"I've always wanted to be a marine biologist, but I don't think I'm smart enough. I eventually want to get into dolphin training. I love animals so much. I definitely want to do something with them."
In fact it's her two cats, Roxy and Sadie, which she'll miss most while hanging out with the Geeks.
"They are my babies. I like bath them once a week. They even get blow-drys. They think they are dogs – I even taught them to sit on command!" she says.
Working as a window dresser, Kristy has her own sense of style which is girly but comfortable and relies on her best asset – her smile – to win over fans.
"Well I had braces so I hope I have a good smile," she says.
She'll be hoping her love of fashion will rub off on the Geeks, as well as a few lessons on how to treat prospective dates.
"I can definitely teach them how a girl likes to be spoken to and treated. Some guys have no idea. You know without being sleazy and too forward and stuff."
But it might only be the millionaire geek who can satisfy Kristy's idea of an indulgent dream date.
"In my imaginary life it would be something amazing like pick me up in a helicopter and take me somewhere like Paris. Like you see those things on TV where they are wined and dined and people get sung to. Something out of the ordinary."
