Beauty and the Geek’s ‘secret hottie’ Jackson Palmer reacts after being exposed as a ‘fake geek’

Beauty and the Geek’s Jackson Palmer breaks his silence after being exposed as a ‘secret hottie’… after unearthed photos showed him looking more like a runway model than an ‘awkward’ nerd

Beauty and the Geek fans were sent into a frenzy on Monday, after images emerged of self-proclaimed ‘awkward’ nerd Jackson Palmer looking more like a runway model.

And now, the reality star has shared his reaction to claims he was a ‘fake geek’ on the reality show in a hilarious TikTok video shared with fans.

In the footage, which has already raked in over 44,000 likes, the 19-year-old spoke in front of a Daily Mail Australia article which showed off his smouldering model-esque look in all its glory.

Reaction: On Monday, Beauty and the Geek’s ‘secret hottie’ Jackson Palmer shared a TikTok video in response to claims he was a ‘fake geek’ on the show 

‘So according to this I have an extensive modelling career – first I’ve heard about it, but whoever hired me can you let me know so I can get some of that big dollar. Thank you,’ he joked.

Fans were quick to comment under the funny video, with one writing: ‘I feel like you were a fake geek.’

He quickly hit back: ‘I heard from a reliable source you might not be correct,’ to which the commenter replied in disbelief: ‘But you look like The Kid Laroi?’

‘The Kid Laroi looking geek,’ Jackson defiantly added.

‘We all saw through the geek. You were a beauty all along,’ another fan added, while a third said: ‘Yeah it’s pretty obvious a few of the guys have just made their hair as s**t as possible and said, yeah nah I’m definitely a nerd…’

Jackson also shared yet another jaw-dropping image of himself on Monday evening, gazing into the distance while showing off his luscious head of hair and chiseled jawline.

‘Big night in the kitchen,’ he captioned the photo. 

The ‘secret hottie’ claims emerged days prior, when Jackson’s co-star Jessica Antoniou shared one of his smouldering photos to her own TikTok page.

‘I had the hot geek?’ Jessica captioned the video, 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.

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 seductive 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, and left before he could receive a makeover by the show’s team of stylists. 

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