Host Konnie Huq dons Supergirl garb to introduce the remaining nerds to their latest, somewhat wasteful challenge: predicting how many panes of glass will be broken by falling objects of differing shapes and weights. Suddenly, “mathemagician” Curtis is in great demand, but just how useful will his blackboard scribbles actually be?

King of the Nerds is equal measures back-stabbing and solidarity. The twists and turns couldn’t be better scripted, while the proverb “pride comes before a fall” is borne out with amusing frequency. It’s satisfying, too, that some of the contestants’ more baroque interjections are being curbed, even if it is done in the vernacular. “Silence, Helium Boy!”


Konnie Huq hosts the quiz show in which some of the country's brightest minds go head-to-head in a bid to be crowned the One Nerd to Rule Them All.
