* Felicity Smoak in ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', played by Emily Bett Rickards, is pretty much the embodiment of this. Even her NerdGlasses and persona hardly do anything in the way of covering it up.

* On ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', Howard's fiancee/wife Bernadette, who earns a Ph.D. in Microbiology. He is at first afraid to get into a serious relationship with her because she was "not Megan Fox in ''Transformers''". Take a look at Melissa Rauch out of costume and these objections fly straight out the window.

* Peter Parker in every incarnation of ''SpiderMan''. Gwen Stacey in ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' definitely fits this trope. Huge glasses, grade-A student and REALLY cute to boot.

** ''Castiel''. He never smiles, his hair is never combed, his face always has that 5 o'clock shadow, and thanks to his angel powers, he will never need to change out of his ratty trenchcoat, wrinkled suit, and loose tie. Dean calls him "nerd angel", but that doesn't stop people in canon and fanon from drooling over him.
*** Averted in that what is onscreen is Jimmy Novak, Castiel's ''host''. Castiel is more of an EldritchAbomination whereas Jimmy Novak was presented as a pious man who believed in God [[BrokenBird at least until he really did meet angels]]...

* Most of the core cast of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' were supposed to be nerds and outcasts, but they were all sexy - most notably Willow, who was played by nerd goddess AlysonHannigan (and her whippet-thin body) for the series. When Jonathan, a more "normal"-looking nerd, was introduced, he was rejected for friendship by Buffy for being too short. Thus, he never made it into the core cast.

* On ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' Clark Kent, the future Superman, and of course, the nerdy everyman who kept his virginity until he was out of high school, and folded into an awkward mess when a hot cheerleader was throwing herself at him. And he's played by an underwear model. Yeah... Its not so much that Clark's a nerd per se, in fact he's shown to be baffled by real-nerd behavior, he's just socially awkward due to having to keep the secret that he's got super powers and is an alien.

* Samantha Carter from ''Series/StargateSG1'' is assumed to be one of the most intelligent people on the planet. She's also an attractive blonde. (Both of these were intentional on the part of the writers). Ah well, at least she dresses like you would expect from a military officer. Daniel Jackson fits the trope as well.
