King Of The Nerds Season Three

January 26, 2015 // 1 Comment

Ok, ok, I know I’m late on this one. But come, on, this is a Firday night show. Friday night?? I have a life, you know! Which might be the point of a nerd show being on Fridays, I’m not sure. Anyway it’s time for King of the Nerds season three. If you aren’t familiar with the previous two seasons, it’s a show that takes a bunch of nerds, and they live together in this house. Every week they compete in a different nerd-themed challenge and someone goes home. Last ...Click for More

King of the Nerds Crowned A King

March 14, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s been a long and arduous journey but we finally made it to the end last night.  Low these 7 weeks ago when a ragtag bunch of misunderstood manifest writing potentially dangerous social outcasts came together to save the world. Wait, I’m being told that wasn’t the point of the show and that it was so that these people with less than zero athletic ability could for once win something.  I mean other than being smarter than us and probably having jobs that pay more and ...Click for More

King of the Nerds Trek Wars

February 21, 2014 // 0 Comments

We’re down to 5 nerds and only 3 episodes left till we crown a new nerd king.  Last night’s episode – King of the Nerds Trek Wars featured a challenge of debating which is better Star Trek or Star Wars.  I kid you not Brian, the kid on the left who kind of looks like an Ewok looked like he had just seen a naked girl.  Seriously, I think this is as close to nerd porn as you can get. Question on any who watches this show’s mind – will this finally be the week that ...Click for More

King Of The Nerds – To LARP Or Something

February 7, 2014 // 0 Comments

This week it was King of the Nerds – To LARP Or Something.  Today is my 45th birthday so this may come as an absolute shock to some of you but I have never heard of “LARP” before this show.  It stands for Live Action Role Play and yeah, it’s as awesome as you would think. In all fairness, when I think about true nerds this is how I picture them.  Playing pretend weird make believe games in dress up.  When I was a kid I hated playing pretend (that’s what we ...Click for More

King Of The Nerds Weird Science

January 31, 2014 // 0 Comments

Episode 2 King of the Nerds Weird Science is officially in the books.  It’s great that this show will go head to head in a few weeks with the Winter Olympics as a lot of the nerd challenges take about as much ability as some Olympic events (I’m looking at you curling). Seriously, you can get a medal for pushing a broom.  Are gym floors across the country going to get a little dustier as we send our best custodians to Sochi to compete for gold? Back to the nerds. Last week saw one ...Click for More

King of the Nerds – In Search of a King

January 26, 2014 // 1 Comment

King of the Nerds – In Search of a King premiered last Thursday.  If there’s anything else on my DVR playlist and I mean anything (2 Broke Girls or Dads) I’ll watch it first.  I don’t hate nerds, but wouldn’t you really rather be watching a show about a bunch of redneck alcoholic kids that maybe party a little too hard in the South? The show begins with the contestants being told that they would be split into teams but that one unfortunate sole would not be ...Click for More

King of the Nerds Season 2

January 23, 2014 // 0 Comments

So King of the Nerds Season 2 starts tomorrow.  I watched and reviewed every episode last season and was kind of hoping there wouldn’t be a season 2, but just like in real life, the nerds are here to stay. The premise of the game is simple really and pretty much follows the standard reality show script.  The nerds are split into teams that compete against each other with the losing team voting out one member.  They attempt to nerd it up by having challenges more suitable for the group ...Click for More

King of the Nerds – A King is Crowned

March 8, 2013 // 0 Comments

It’s the finals and there are 4 “nerds” remaining.  I used the quotes because the real nerds were eliminated from the show leaving us with poser wanna be nerds competing for the crown. So let’s get to it.  The show starts with each nerd stating how bad they want to win.  Danielle of course uses this opportunity to again demonstrate her total bitchyness.  The other 3 nerds are celebrating having made it to the final four.  Not Danielle.  She didn’t come here ...Click for More

Editors Note:  This is a review of Week 7 of King of the Nerds – Enginerds.  For a complete recap of previous episodes, follow this link. We are getting down to the end of this nerdapaloza experiment.  It appears it’s going to be a long episode as we are down to 5 nerds and one of them is Danielle.  If she doesn’t go home tonight I don’t think I can watch the season finale next week.  Good god almighty, that bitch is crazy. The challenge is some stinking physics ...Click for More

King of the Nerds – Games Without Frontiers

January 31, 2013 // 0 Comments

It’s week 3 of King of the Nerds. I devised my own nerd index also know as NAAG (not an actual nerd), whereby the biggest nerd actually has the best chance of leaving because they are the biggest threat.  So far the index is 2 for 2.  Heading into week 3 the index would say the Virgil, Ivan, or Alana have the best chance of being kicked off the island, wait that’s not right, whatever, you get the point. First a quick moment to reminisce about Jon, their fallen comrade from Week ...Click for More

Editors Note: This post is for week 2.  For other weeks, follow the links below. Preseason Week 1 – Meet the Nerds Week 3 – Games Without Frontiers On to week 2 of King of the Nerds.  The rankings have Jon as the biggest nerd after week 1.  Based on the format of the show, the biggest nerd actually has the best chance of losing, so let’s get to it. The first challenge of the show pits team orange against team blue in some type of “Cosplay” or costume ...Click for More
