More on the chess geek

According to The Daily Northwestern, Joe Block almost didn't get selected to be a contestant on the second season of "Beauty and the Geek." It was his chess prowess that pulled him through.

Block almost was too cool to make the show. He said being in a band, Gnome Attic (say it fast), was a strike against him.

He recovered his title by beating Richard, one of the geeks from the first season, in a “five-minute blitz game” of chess.
