LEAVE it to Davina and Mak to decide which of them takes the title of beauty, but as of Monday at 6am the role of breakfast radio geek will be firmly filled by reality TV star and Maryborough local, Lachlan Cosgrove.

Most notable for winning series three of Beauty and the Geek in 2011, Lachlan returns to his roots as the newest member of the Sea FM Wide Bay morning crew but assures he won't be pigeonholed by his past.

"If people tune in thinking 'geek' they will be sorely disappointed. I'd like to think of myself as more of a court jester," he said.

"I promise it won't be all politics and PhDs and physics and lab experiments, though I'm sure there will be a few experiments."

Regardless of his new direction, Lachlan admits his experience on reality TV has been the driving force behind his success.

"I've been working towards getting a radio gig for the past six months but have been in and around radio for I guess the past year," he said.

"I'm looking forward to getting out amongst the community and seeing what I can getting involved around the place but also looking forward to working alongside Davina and Mak who have been very welcoming so far but hopefully they don't dress me up in a mankini and send me out on the streets or anything like that.

"Beauty and the Geek got me into radio in a very long-winded way so I'm stoked to have had that experience.

"My partner, my team mate who I won the show with, is still a really good friend, to the point where to get immunity on the show I got her name tattooed on my left buttock."

"The next step is obviously to get the Sea FM logo with Davina, Mak and Lockie tattooed on the right buttock."
