seriously?

Jonny and I were flipping through the channels the other day and we saw the saddest/scariest thing ever. This show, Beauty and the Geek, was on. We've never watched it before, but the challenge for these particular beauties and geeks was a quiz--and the girls had to answer american history questions while the guys had to answer questions about pop culture.

Anyway, it was freaky how much these girls didn't know about our country. I mean, basic stuff! So this was my favorite moment:

Host: Here is your question: Who was president of the United States during the Civil War?
Beauty: ummmm
Host (repeating helpfully): President of the United States during the Civil War...
Beauty: Hoover?
Host: Nooooo. The President of the United States during the Civil War was Abraham Lincoln.
Beauty: Ohhhh, right. D-Day...

Those shows have got to be scripted.
