Frisky Exclusive: We Ask The Cast Of “RJ Berger” If High School Was Rough For Them

Last night, MTV threw a red carpet party for their new show, “The Hard Times of RJ Berger.” Guess they couldn’t call it a “premiere,” since, technically, it aired the night before, following the MTV Movie Awards. Anyway, I was desperate to chat up the cast since I drool over nerd-friendly shows, so I jumped…

Girl Talk: Thank You, Ned Weinstein

Ned Weinstein* was the white, Jewish incarnation of Steve Urkel. He was a scrawny kid with a mass of brown hair that someone, presumably his mom, attempted to part on the right side. He had a turkey sandwich for lunch every day, and wore button-down shirts in the 1st grade. By the 2nd he had…

Boys Make Passes At Girls Who Wear Glasses (And Look Like This)

There are many old adages that say guys don’t like girls who wear glasses, that having four eyes is simply not attractive, and that nerds get no play. New Zealand photographer/illustrator Kelly Thompson proves everyone wrong with her mixed media exhibit “Bookworms Never Go To Bed Alone,” on display at the Gorker Gallery in Melbourne,…

Revenge of the Nerds: Four Reasons Women Dig Geeks

When my boyfriend announced that he was getting Lasik surgery a few months ago, I was unnerved. Glasses are my thing—one of those obscure attributes that immediately attracts me to somebody, no matter how brutish or repelling the rest of his personality may be. For one of my girlfriends, it’s large veins on a man&#8217… / June 24, 2009

Check Out This Site: Nerd Boyfriend

Steve Urkel would have you thinking that he was pretty much born with suspenders and thick-rimmed glasses. Yet, the truth is, nerd style, like the disheveled hipster look, is carefully cultivated. Now, there’s, a website that features pictures of dorky (yet famous) dudes, along with style suggestions on how to get those looks.

Pixar’s Wall-E: A Robot Love Story

Pixar’s latest, Wall-E hits theaters June 27, and this is the trailer. I am such a sucker for nerdy guys (even nerdy robots). When Wall-E and Eve are holding hands, my heart melts.

Buff And Smart? Sounds Like A Dream Come True

“Nerds of Steel,” an article in this week’s New York Observer, purports that there are a bunch of men who, though they seemingly value brains over brawn, actually value brains in addition to brawn, but in secret. They are smart. They are buff. They are hot once they take off their clothes. I am slightly…

All Nerds Are Not Created Equal

Ever since Adam Brody stole our hearts on The O.C. playing hot nerd Seth Cohen, the “smart throb” has been the type-du-jour. Move over bad boys, we want someone who will manage our finances, fix our computers and watch angst-y hipster movies with us. Luckily, Beauty and the Geek: Season 2 winner Josh Herman compiled…
