Lucky guess keeps Gympie's geek on our TV screens

A GOOD guess about Vogue Magazine saved Gympie's Beauty and the Geek star Jason Newell on Thursday night.

The geek was a wrong answer away from being pushed from the competition on Channel 7's Thursday night episode of Beauty and the Geek.

Jason and his partner Kristy were nominated for eviction from the competition and to keep their places, they had to face power couple Courtney and Matt and answer a set of elimination questions.

The quiz boiled down to a tie-breaker between geeks and it was a question pertaining to the number of editions of Vogue Magazines published throughout the world that saved the Gympie town planner.

While neither geek guessed the correct number 19, Jason was closest saving him from elimination.
