Are you nerdy enough to be deemed the nerdiest person in America?
King of the Nerds season 2 is set to premiere in early 2014 on TBS. And one of the cast members will be chosen by you, the people. In fact, your title will be, “The People’s Nerd.”
To be considered as a potential “People’s Nerd,” King of the Nerds hopefuls must create a video of no more than five minutes in length showcasing their unique nerdiness. Friends, family and fellow nerds will then be able to vote on which nerd they want to see battling for the title in this nerd-tastic competition.
Here is your time table:
· Now – May 24: Casting videos can be uploaded to the King of the Nerds Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/KingOfTheNerdsTBS). Voting will take place throughout the month, narrowing the field to the Top 10 nerds, who will move on to the next round.
· May 25 – 31: The public will vote for their favorite nerds from among the Top 10.
· June 3-5: The Top 3 nerds will be announced, with one finalist revealed each day on the King of the Nerds Facebook page.
· July: The Top 3 nerds will be flown to Los Angeles to meet with the producers, who will then choose at least one of them to be “The People’s Nerd,” with a spot in Nerdvana and the chance to compete for the ultimate nerd crown.
Nerds who are interested in competing in the second season of King of the Nerds but do not want to participate in “The People’s Nerd” casting can find information about the standard casting process online at http://www.nerdking.net.
