DESCRIPTION:
(from TBS's press release, October 2013) The people have spoken, and Josh Wittenkeller of Grayslake, Ill., has been chosen to serve as "The People's Nerd" this winter on TBS's hit competition series King of the Nerds. For the show's second season, TBS gave fans the chance to cast one of the competitors through a special crowd-sourced casting call conducted on the show's Facebook page. Josh will now compete against 10 other nerds from around the country when King of the Nerds kicks off its second season Thursday, Jan. 23, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), only on TBS. Hosted by actors Robert Carradine (Revenge of the Nerds, The Long Riders) and Curtis Armstrong (Revenge of the Nerds, Ray), King of the Nerds features competitors from across the nerd spectrum facing 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. This year's competitors are looking to inherit the crown from current crown-holder Celeste Anderson, a professional gamer from Orillia, Ontario, who specializes in first-person shooters and speed-cubing. Celeste is set to make a guest appearance in the second season opener, which will introduce viewers to Josh and the rest of the nerds vying for Celeste's crown.
