MEET Brianha (Bri) Auty – as of Sunday night, she will be front and centre on thousands of television screens around Australia on the series Beauty and the Geek.
To say she’s excited is an understatement: “OH MY GOODNESS! I’m over the moon!” Bri exclaimed.
“This is the most incredible experience I have ever been a part of and I cannot wait for Australia to see it all unfold…expect a roller coaster of a season with happiness, tears and a whole lot of love.”
Bri has been working in the Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) for eight years and is currently an administration officer for Therapy Reception in Clinical Support and said “seeing patients getting the best possible outcome for their rehab is really rewarding”.
“I have seen some pretty upsetting situations when they first come in for rehab but seeing them come full circle at the end of their treatment makes me feel so lucky to see how far they have come.”
The premise of the ‘Beauty and the Geek’ television series revolves around a group of “beauties” being paired up with “geeks” to compete in challenges to survive eliminations each episode.
The idea behind the show is that each contestant will learn something along the way from their teammate who is in many ways their polar opposite.
Brianha wanted to appear on the show because she feels like she encompasses the meaning of the word ‘beauty’.
“It doesn’t just mean what you look like on the outside but it’s what’s on the inside that counts too,” she said.
“I have a huge heart of gold and I think the geeks would appreciate my soft humbleness and kindness.
“I’m always the girl in the room that is there for somebody no matter what.”
As for the possibility of falling in love with a “geek”, Brianha said “anything is possible, nothing is off limits and I’m always open minded”.
Brianha’s WSLHD colleagues, along with the rest of the country, will no doubt be glued to their television screens on Sunday.
The “beauty” is feeling the love from her colleagues saying, “I have the most incredible support team behind me and I could not be luckier if I tried.”
“Every day my team count down the days until the show airs; they also jump up and down with excitement when they see my face on the promos.
“This is a surreal moment for me. I don’t think it has hit me yet, however, I’m super grateful and thank the universe for giving me this opportunity.”
TEAM BRI, let’s go!
