The CW is bringing back Beauty and the Geek for a thrid season.

Variety notes Beauty and the Geek pairs eight socially challenged geniuses with eight academically flawed stunners as they compete in a variety of challenges for a $250,000 prize. The show's second season scored the WB's top marks last season among adults 18-34.

Beauty and the Geek Wednesday, January 3, at 8 p.m.
