In her four years at Morgan State University, Maria Richardson aced nearly every assignment given her -- no small feat in a field as technical and demanding as electrical engineering, her major. She earned a 3.87 GPA -- highest in her electrical engineering class of 66 -- and along the way won raves from her professors and mentors for her work in the rarified world of electrical impedance technology, perfecting a device for "seeing" beneath a person's skin. She has the world at her feet; in a field with a shortage of both women and African-Americans, she has been showered with money to pursue graduate studies.

After Wednesday's episode of Beauty and the Geek 3, we have one fewer somewhat-local contestant to keep an eye on. Piao, a 25-year-old tax accountant who lives in Washington, got kicked off along with his partner, Sheree. But we can still watch out for Niels of Silver Spring, who's studying for his doctorate in electrical engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. (A repeat of Wednesday's episode airs at 9 tomorrow night on WNUV, Channel 54.)
