* [[AlphaBitch Stacy]] in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'' eventually does genuinely fall has a thing for Spud, though she sweet, sensitive guys and ultimately ends up falling for the lead character's geeky friend, Arthur P. Spudinski (aka, "Spud"). However, after they get together, Stacy insists on keeping their the relationship a secret (at least in the beginning) to uphold her reputation.



* {{Subverted|Trope}} in ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}''. [[LovableAlphaBitch Quinn]] gets an older, brainy tutor named David, and begins to become smarter as they work together over the summer. She falls for him and asks him out, but he turns her down, noting that she lacks the "depth" he looks for in a girl. Quinn is heartbroken, since David is pretty much the only guy to ever turn her down (or for that matter, the only one she ever seemed to like for more than just looks or popularity). Daria consoles her by pointing A) the guy is kind of a jerk for dismissing her so coldly and B) she's clearly ''developing'' depth if she's interested in a guy for personality over looks.

* The trope is played with slightly cynically in later ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' strips, as hopeless geek Gary is frequently pursued by various members of the comic's stunningly attractive female cast (plus at least one gay guy and one {{transsexual}}). However, not many of them like him ''for'' his geekiness; their reasons include his blushing, bumbling cuteness, his supposedly glamorous status as a (wannabe) artist, and his fabled skill at cunnilingus. Ziiís attraction to him fits the trope more closely, but she fights it furiously.

* A Go Daddy SuperBowl ad once had a smoking hot model making out with a nerd (who turns out to also play one of the background geeks from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''.) The reaction to it was pretty much universally negative, mainly because of the apparently intentionally disturbing close-ups and sound mixing.
