DESCRIPTION: (from TBS's press release, October 2014) TBS has announced the 12 nerds who will take to the field of nerd battle in the third season of King of the Nerds. Hosts Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong, who also serve as executive producers, will once again supervise the proceedings as competitors from across the nerd spectrum vie for the ultimate nerd title. King of the Nerds is set to kick off its third season on Jan. 23, 2015 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. 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. Despite the show's gender-specific title, women have sat atop the Throne of Games in the show's two prior seasons.
