Star Trek favorite George Takei, along with Kevin Smith and the filmmaker’s frequent collaborator/Jay to his Silent Bob, Jason Mewes, will be among the guest judges on the TBS reality competition, which debuts Thursday, Jan. 17, at 10/9c.
Hosted by Revenge of the Nerds alumni Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong, King of the Nerds will pit 11 competitors in challenges that test their “intellect, ingenuity, skills and pop-culture prowess.” The nerds will first compete as teams before moving on to individual challenges, all with their eyes on a $100,000 prize.
Guest judges such as Takei, Smith and Mewes will determine the winners of the team challenges, which include a superhero debate, a cosplay competition and a “nerd anthem contest.”
