He was eliminated from Beauty and the Geek just before the highly anticipated makeover sessions.
But it seems Jackson Palmer didn’t need Channel Nine’s stylists to make him look more dashing than his “geeky” look on the show, an unearthed photo proves.
Last week, his co-star Jessica Antoniou shocked fans after sharing a breathtaking image of the 19-year-old — where he looked more like a catalog model than a self-proclaimed “clumsy” nerd.

“I had the hot nerd?” Jessica captioned the photo in a short clip she shared on TikTok.
In the footage, Jessica posted a photo of Jackson wearing his signature crazy hats, glasses and a colorful T-shirt.
But seconds later, the clip cut to a smoldering black-and-white image of Jackson dressed all in black and staring seductively at the camera—a world away from his technical appearance on the reality series.
Fans rushed to the comment section to share their disbelief at the transformation, with one writing: “My friends didn’t believe me when I said he was the best geek – look now! I’ve always known.’
“Girl, I mentioned it!” said another, while a third added, “We all knew it!”

Others questioned the show’s legitimacy, commenting, “Oh I get it, “beauty and the pretend geek”.’
But Jessica snapped back, writing, “Who said geeks can’t look good too? Jackson is just lucky, that’s all.’
Since his brief stint in reality TV, Jackson — who apparently has “never kissed a girl” — seems to have toned down his “geeky” look and opted for a more subdued vibe.

Earlier this week, he shared a photo of himself posing by the sea in a white T-shirt, denim jacket and the same smoldering look as before.
The photo was taken by fellow Beauty and the Geek star James Letheby, who commented, “Gosh, that’s a great photo. Those photographers have crazy skills.’
Jessica and Jackson were the second couple wrapped up on Beauty and The Geek.
Although they failed to find a romantic connection, they are said to have maintained a “really good friendship” outside of the series.
