Beauty and the Geek star Mike has set the record straight after rumors surfaced he was only putting on a geeky persona for TV.

His nerd credentials were questioned earlier this week after a photo of him looking handsome and confident at a Halloween party last year resurfaced on social media.

The image led some fans to question if he really was the socially awkward ‘Batman fanatic’ he claimed to be on camera.

Mike addressed the rumours on Thursday, saying he takes it as a compliment whenever someone accuses him of being an actor or ‘fake geek’.

‘[The rumour] literally is the biggest compliment, I was so happy to hear that,’ the 20-year-old told Who magazine.

He went on to reveal why he looked so good in the photo, in which he posed in a Ghostbusters costume sporting a much shorter beard.

‘I was sweating so much. I’m in Queensland, and I’m in that big Ghostbusters costume… so the beard looks a lot shorter in the photo,’ he said.

‘That actually is just because I’m so drenched in sweat.’

Viewers have questioned the legitimacy of some of the geeks on the new season of Beauty and the Geek, which is hosted by Sophie Monk.

My favorite thing about Beauty and the Geek is working out which Geeks are actually actors,’ one person tweeted.

‘You can see that some of the Geeks are good looking just change the hair and shave the beard,’ another added.

‘Meh something seems off to me how they present the geeks. I’m sure they’re lovely guys but it is all editing anyways,’ a third commented.

‘Is this Beauty and the Geek or guys I would lust after on Smith Street?’ another wrote, alongside a series of photos of the ‘geeks’ from the show.

One person wrote: ‘It’s fun enjoying the wholesomeness of BATG until you remember it’s the same network that produces MAFS.’

During the show’s premiere, 25-year-old ‘geek’ Michael displayed longer hair and a long beard – but in photos taken last year, he had a shorter haircut and stubble.

Alexander, 27, also looked different in photos shared on Instagram just months before the show’s premiere.

The ‘bookworm’ has a fuller beard and longer hair on the program, compared to his well-groomed look from May.
