The program poses the question, “Are you geek enough?” and then seeks out answers through a series of head to head competitions hosted by Anyone But Me’s Rachael Hip-Flores and shot by The Hayley Project’s Andy Park. Participants debate age-old topics like Han Solo or Indiana Jones, metachlorine counts versus angels incarnate, and Frodo or Willow (Correct Answer? Madmartigan). Judging from the trailer, it looks a player vs. player version of Beat the Geeks for the online generation with a custom theme song from the Soundtrack Villains.
Geek vs. Geek is slated to start shooting in November, but not before announcing its final eight contestants during New York Comic Con on October 16.
If you think you’ve lived in your parent’s basement long enough, been ridiculed in school for a sufficient amount of time, and are lacking the requisite amount of social skills (three cheers for stereotypical nerd jokes!) to provide some fierce competition to your geeky peers, then be sure to complete the application process. Also be sure to be over the age of 18 and available for filming in New York City later this Fall.
Good luck! And may the force be with you and/or make it so and/or winter is coming and/or insert whatever signoff phrase you’d like from something appropriately nerdy.
