Monday is a very special day for us here at CarterMatt — after many weeks of preparation and recording, we are now pleased to officially launch the audiobook More Than Just Two Geeks: Behind the Scenes of ‘Beauty and the Geek’ and the Reality TV Experience.
This Audiobook is an extensive look at what it means to be a part of a reality television series, what you go through, and a number of other things that you would not expect behind the scenes. It’s an insightful, but loving look at the reality TV process, the highs and lows, and also some of the friendships and bonds that you make along the way. CarterMatt co-founder Matt Carter worked alongside his fellow former Beauty and the Geek cast member Jason Prager to craft a peek behind the reality television curtain that is funny and engrossing no matter if you are a reality TV super-fan or someone who isn’t as familiar with the genre.
New chapters of More Than Just Two Geeks are going to be uploaded on a regular basis on the official CarterMatt YouTube Channel (be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss any chapters); you can listen to Chapter 1, Part 1 below, which focuses largely on the reality TV casting process and the emotions that come with seeing some of your fellow cast members for the first time. Part 2, (which is about the acclimation process to reality TV filming), is set to be released on Tuesday morning. If you are interested in getting an mp3 version to take with you on the go, those are available for purchase at CarterMatt.com/audiobook.
This audiobook is being released now in part to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Beauty and the Geek season 5 airing on The CW. It was a life-changing experience that changed both Matt and Jason’s lives forever; now felt like the perfect time for the two to revisit that experience. (One of the running jokes within the audiobook is the differences in television / pop culture between 2008 and 2018.)
Happy listening! Future chapters will be announced on social media with separate announcements coming here at CarterMatt. If you want to receive more updates, the perfect way in which to do that is by liking CarterMatt on Facebook.
