Beauty and the Geek’s Jackson Palmer EXPOSED as a ‘secret hottie’

Beauty and the Geek’s Jackson Palmer is EXPOSED as a ‘secret hottie’ as his co-star finds photos of the ‘awkward’ nerd looking like a runway model

He was eliminated from Beauty and the Geek before the highly anticipated makeovers which aired on Sunday night.

But it seems Jackson Palmer didn’t need a team of stylists to transform him from geek to chic, as he was already breaking hearts long before filming the show.

His co-star Jessica Antoniou last week unearthed smouldering photos of the 19-year-old looking more like a catalogue model than a self-proclaimed ‘awkward’ nerd.

‘I had the hot geek?’ Jessica captioned a video on TikTok comparing Jackson on the Channel Nine show to his sultry modelling photos. 

In the footage, Jessica looked over at a photo of Jackson on BATG wearing his trademark goofy hat, glasses and a colourful T-shirt.

But seconds later, the clip cut to a black-and-white image of Jackson gazing seductively at the camera, looking worlds away from his geeky on-screen persona.

Fans couldn’t believe the transformation, with one commenting: ‘My friends didn’t believe me when I said he was the hottest geek – now look! I always knew.’

‘Girl, I called it!’ another said, while a third chimed in: ‘We all knew!’

Others questioned the legitimacy of the dating show, with one commenting: ‘Oh I get it, “beauty and the pretend geek”.’

But Jessica snapped back with: ‘Who said geeks can’t be good looking too? Jackson is just a lucky geek, that’s all.’

Jackson, who has apparently ‘never kissed a girl’, appears to have toned down his ‘geeky’ style since filming BATG and now opts for a more demure vibe.

He shared a photo on Instagram earlier this week of himself posing by the ocean in a white T-shirt and denim jacket while sporting the same smouldering gaze as before.

The photo was taken by fellow Beauty and the Geek star James Letheby, who commented: ‘Gosh that’s a great photo. That photogs got some mad skills.’

Jess and Jackson were the second couple to be sent home on Beauty and the Geek.

While they failed to form a romantic connection, they have maintained a ‘really good friendship’ away from the series.
