Did you, against your better judgment, find yourself inexplicably drawn to VH1’s website over the past week, compelled by some force beyond your control to watch the Rock of Love online casting special?
If so, among the steady stream of fake breasts and variations on the “I really like sex!! I’m serious, I’m really super freaky!” stories, you might have noticed that one of the leggy blondes looked a little familiar.
Megan Hauserman, winner of Season 3 of Beauty and the Geek, is now angling to be a two-time reality champ. She’s already won the money; this time, maybe she’s just doing it for love.
On Season 3 of Beauty and the Geek, she was partnered with Alan ‘Scooter’ Zackheim and the two were voted the most changed and awarded the cash prize. Megan also has had a relatively successful modeling career, having posed for Playboy and been named Playboy Cybergirl of the week in February of 2006. And if the entertainment angle doesn’t work out, she is said to have a degree in accounting from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
So what’s the appeal of a show like Rock of Love to the Beauty and the Geek winner? Does she just want more screen time? In her casting video, she says that she was compelled to join the show as fulfillment of a lifelong dream.
She said, “I think that I was born to be a rock star girlfriend. I was! I can’t even help it. It’s like a calling, like, nurses…I mean nuns…they feel a calling, they have to go to the convent. That’s me! I feel it! It’s calling me. It’s meant to be. I can’t even help it.”
Other than comparing the rock star girlfriend lifestyle to that of a nun, and talking about how her father prefers that she wear more clothes than she normally does, Megan doesn’t really do anything too silly in her casting video, usually a sign that the contestant will go far on a dating show. But whether or not she has what it takes to win Brad’s heart remains to be seen.
