TBS's King of the Nerds Returns as 11 New Competitors Vie for the Ultimate Nerd Title

Posted: Updated:

(Hawaii News Now) - The nerds are back as TBS's hit competition series King of the Nerds returns for a second season with all-new nerd-tastic challenges and a new pack of contestants. Hosts Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong, who also serve as executive producers, will once again supervise the proceedings as 11 competitors from across the nerd spectrum vie for the ultimate nerd title. King of the Nerds will kick off its second season Thursday, Jan. 23, only on TBS.

In King of the Nerds, competitors face challenges that test their intellect, ingenuity, skills and pop-culture prowess. The nerds live together in "Nerdvana," competing first as teams before moving on to individual challenges. In the end, only one competitor will be named the quintessential master of all things nerdy, winning the $100,000 prize.  The show will be bringing back some elements from last season with all-new twists in addition to more exciting and nerdy challenges. New challenges include Robot Dodgeball, Nerdiocart and a Science Fair. They will live in a bigger, better, nerdier Nerdvana during the competition. This season's enhanced finale will also be decided by pure nerd skill rather than by vote.
