Calling all nerds. The popular competition-based reality show from TBS, “King of the Nerds,” is currently casting for Season 2. The reality show embraces and celebrates all things “nerd”, so the mere fact that you’re reading this probably means you’d qualify. You’ll have to submit a 5-10 minute video of yourself to apply, and must be at least 18 years old. The winner of the show will receive $100,000!

Will you be the next “One Nerd to Rule Them All”? Head here for more information on how to get involved.

  1. POPULAR?? This is an anti-intellectual program to MAKE FUN of nerds, to show that enthusiasts are weird and abnormal, so the “normals” can feel safe in their idiocy. Similar to BBT, actually.

    This was a horrible show that made fun of everybody – nerds or not – in an attempt to be funny, edgy, clever, something. It was none of those things. It was pointing fingers and laughing when most people were not laughing along. I’m a huge nerd and it bothered me so much. I don’t blame or feel less for anybody who was a ‘contestant’ on the show, but it was quite mean. I have a sense of humor and I can lugh at how over the top I am at times, but this show ONLY showed people as they wanted to. I am sure these are decent people who actually had great things to say on and off camera, but we will never see that. This needs to not have a second season. It’s no better than “The Real World” or any of the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” shows in showing what it wants to.
