King of the Nerds

Image 1 / 10

‘King of the Nerds' follows contestants as they compete in challenges testing their intellect, ingenuity, skills, and pop-culture knowledge in order to win a $100,000 prize and to be crowned "the greatest nerd of them all," worthy to sit atop the "Throne of Games". The contestants live together in one house, called "Nerdvana", competing as teams before moving on to individual challenges. The show uses a progressive elimination format, with contestants initially separated into two teams via schoolyard pick. In each episode, the contestants compete in a team challenge called the "Nerd War", fighting for immunity from elimination.
