The finale is upon us! It is time to choose the ruler of the nerds for another year. Episode 8 of King of the Nerds airs Friday, March 13th, on TBS. Are you ready to join in on some live blogging awesome at 9/8c? Well, we are! But first, a quick recap of last week’s episode: Invasion of the Nerd Snatchers.
It feels a little like KOTN hit a high back in Episode 5: Nuclear Nerd Games, because the last two episodes, gotta say, a little…meh.
Although, we really loved the You Can’t Do That On Television element of the Nerd War. They basically asked the Nerds to round robin their way through a bunch of different questions – so, for example, naming as many Pokémon as you could. Whoever broke the chain got slimed! Two slimings, and bam, you’re out!
Why, you might ask? Because, excitingly this was also double elimination night, because you know, finale this week, so…. gotta get rid of some people.
Who’s out?Amanda. We are all sad.
Nerdspeed, Amanda, nerdspeed. But we can’t wallow in our sadness, because it’s time to move on to the Nerd Off.
Lily and Raychelle were thrown to the wolves by the other nerds and forced to play Giant Stratego.
It went poorly. Raychelle literally forgot how to play Giant Stratego in the last turn of the game and then lost, hard.
Bye Raychelle, Nerdspeed.
But wait! Now all the nerds are flooding back into Nerdvana!? What could possibly be happening here? It’s nerdtastic!
And now, go get yourself some nice Arbor Mist or Seabreeze and let’s get ready for the nerdalicious finale!
Also, just in case you all totally forget who is left: it’s Lily, Ben, Jonathan and (our fave) Kaitlin.
