A question: Would Miyuki Takara from anime/Lucky Star count? She's very studious and has rather geeky hobbies (reading to the point where she's a human wikipedia) and her attractiveness has been noted at least once.
There used to be a picture of wrestler AJ Lee for the image on the page...she's not just a model they stuck glasses on. They call her "Geek Goddess" for a legit reason. She's a petanko who literally wears chucks glasses and tees and shorts, and you can probably grab 30+ geek references a week from her twitter that can range from Batman to action figures to Final Fantasy or how much of an overall klutz she is.
It's just a bonus that she happens to be pretty damn attractive.
Also was there ever a pro-wrestling folder on this page? Because you'd be surprised how many of them are actually pretty geeky...
The following examples were purged because of vagueness. If they are readded, please mention when in-story they were mentioned or advanced as being attractive because of their nerdiness:
(Hint: If you have to mention "fans," any sort of reality show, and/or use the word "character" in the wrong context, that goes in Troper Tales, not the main page!)
(Also note that foldercontrol isn't working for some reason, and that the Web Original folder is within the Webcomic folder, again for some reason I can't fathom.)
I'm just gonna give kudos for doing this, since the page was really turning into a list of nerdy characters who were played by physically attractive people/drawn to be physically attractive. I mean, wow, physically attractive actors, who'd a thunk it?
Is this trope considered female only?
Thinking of suggesting a redefinition/rename to Trope Repair, since this trope has nothing specifically to do with nerds. See Trope Talk discussion for further reasoning?
Yeah most of these examples are not really nerds at all, it's more a "someone is genuinely attractive but doesn't care about their presentation or dresses poorly" and that doesnt even sound like a trope. It sounds like someone just being lazy. In any case, Beautiful All Along is essentially the exact same thing.

How well does it match the trope?
