TBS’s “King of the Nerds” is returning in 2015 for a third season with eight full episodes! And the reality competition series is currently searching for passionate nerds between the ages of 18 and 30 that might be interested in showcasing their intellect, knowledge, and personality for a chance to win $100,000.
Season two of the series, hosted by Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong concluded in March and averaged 1.5 million total viewers.
“King of the Nerds demonstrates the power of nerd culture by drawing not only a fervent fan base but also the youngest audience of any current TBS original,” said Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TBS, TNT and TCM of the series. “We look forward to building on that success as more viewers discover this terrific competition series.”
The reality show is looking for men and women who love science, math, engineering, computers, robotics, sci-fi, comics, cosplay, and other geeky endeavors for Season 3.
“We are looking in every corner of Azeroth to find the best of the best nerds and geeks,” “King of the Nerds” casting manager Erik Leazure told Crave. “We want engineers, cosplayers, physicists, hackers, hard-core gamers, anime fanatics, comic book collectors, or anything else in the realm of nerdom. We encourage everyone to apply no matter what their level of nerdiness. The only surefire way to not get on the show is to not apply!”
Nerds and geeks who want to apply to be on the show should send their name, phone number, any academic credentials, and a brief summary about why they should be on “King of the Nerds” to KingOfTheNerdsCasting@gmail.com.
“Let your nerd flag fly high,” Leazure said. “We are looking for your passions to ooze through the computer screen when we watch your videos. If you aren’t excited to show off your collection of 1,000 comic books, or your hand-painted ‘Star Wars’ figurines, then we won’t be excited. We feed off of your energy and love to see you excited about your nerdy or geeky passions.”
