* ''Film/AmericanPie'''s Nadia is established to be attracted to geeks. The only reason Jim doesn't get with her in the first movie is [[JizzedInMyPants that he's too nervous with her]]. Despite this, she tries it on with him in the second movie, only for him to eventually rebuff her when he realises how he feels about Michelle, who is herself quite geeky. Nadia has to make do with Sherman at the party. In fact, the last film implies that Nadia is not completely over Jim.

As written, this is misuse because she isn't considered sexy until she stops being a nerd. It's just Beautiful All Along.
* ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard'': Daisy Duke, in the 2005 TV remake/prequel ''The Beginning'', where she wears thick glasses, large sweaters and baggy pants, and her hair in a bun. She is also very shy and mousy. Underneath it all, as everyone sort of sensed, was this blooming butterfly, to put it mildly. When she takes a job at the Boar's Nest, the nerdy Daisy emerged from her cocoon and what a babe she turned out to be. Needless to say, her social skills improved 1000 percent and she was soon asked out by every guy in Hazzard County. (Alas, this is non-canon for true Dukes fans, as the original series bible has Daisy always being popular ... in fact, getting crowned prom queen at Hazzard High School.)

* ''VideoGame/NamcoHigh'': if you do the Tomari romance, Cousin starts out finding him "cute", then nearly melts from raw hotness when he gets his glasses back.

** Although Umino is a more stereotypical nerd, in a manga chapter featuring a princess who looked just like him but turned to be really beautiful without her glasses, Usagi Rei and Ami wondered if Umino would look hot without them too, this was confirmed by WordOfGod.

You could've just commented them out... or added the context from the links. But yeah, those were definitely insufficient.
Added DiffLines:
* ''Webcomic/{{Loserz}}'' has a few ''sexy'' losers: ** Alice thinks so. [[http://the-qlc.com/loserz/go/217 One strip]] sees her fantasizing about a guy looking hot while rolling his dice in D&D. ** Adam is sexy and a ClosetNerd, but when some girls found out he had nerdy hobbies [[http://the-qlc.com/loserz/go/397 it made them like him more]].

Deleted both the Loserz entries for lack of context. The first amounted to 'see here' and the other was based on audience reaction, rather than in-universe reaction.
* Alice from ''Webcomic/{{Loserz}}'' thinks so. See [[http://the-qlc.com/loserz/go/217 this]] strip. ** And Adam from the same strip actually ''is'' a sexy nerd (although he usually hides it - being a gaming nerd, not being sexy). See [[http://the-qlc.com/loserz/go/397 here]].

* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'': Whereas the previous incarnations of [[SmartPeopleWearGlasses Velma's]] character were HollywoodPudgy, ''"Mystery Incorporated"'' slimmed down her figure and portrayed her as being sexually attractive. Shaggy even dated her[[note]]until they broke up, due to Scooby's jealousy[[/note]] and had to admit she was the one thing he'd choose over food. And for a BigEater like Shaggy, that's literally saying a mouthful!
