Want to be in a hit Reality T.V Show? Are you a book worm, sci-fi fanatic, gamer, or straight-A student? Well read carefully below, because this could be the opportunity of a life-time!
King of the Nerds, an up-and-coming reality t.v show to be distributed by hit cable television network TBS, has announced this week that they’re considering further applicants.
TBS announced this past March that they’ve greenlit 8 episodes of the unscripted competition based reality show, in which self-proclaimed nerds from a variety of nerdy backgrounds will battle it out to be crowned – the king of the nerds. The show wants to emphasize “Nerd is the New Cool”, in response to changing shifts in today’s culture where we’re seeing nerds becoming billionaires (like Mark Zuckerberg and Sean Parker), pro gamers becoming celebrities, and shows like Big Bang Theory taking over television.
The casting team for King of the Nerds originally took applications starting back in August 2011, and are again taking a second round of applications starting May 9th, 2012. The second round of casting will ensure all options have been met, and that a target number of people have both heard of the casting call and have had the opportunity to submit.
Below is from the King of the Nerds website, where they list the types of applicants they’re interested in:
Are you a super fan of STAR WARS, STAR TREK, HARRY POTTER, LORD OF THE RINGS, BATTLESTAR or DRAGONS and WIZARDS? Are you a GAMER who owns every console and maxes out trophies and achievements? Do you have an outrageous collection of TOYS and/or COMIC BOOKS? Are you passionate about MATHEMATICS, PHYSICS, BIOLOGY, etc? Do you build ROBOTS and write APPS and PROGRAMS for fun? Do you consider yourself a MAKER or DIY person? Have you ever been to BURNING MAN? Are you obsessed with SUPER HEROES? Are you a D&D, or WoW fanatic? Do you love everything SCI-FI? Are you ARDUINO proficient? Can you list all the digits of PI? Are you in MENSA?
To be considered for the show.
Include your name, age, photo, contact info, and brief bio on what makes you today’s MOST INGENIOUS nerd!
