The Judges are Adam Bush, George Takei, and Yaya Han. Two of the losing team will face off in an odd Nerd-Off trivia/bowling challenge. The bowling portion will be performed with giant D&D-style dice.
Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
Judges pick Orange/Servants. Jon and Alana are voted in by Orange & Blue, respectively, for the Nerd-Off. Although Orange seriously considered voting Genevieve.
Alana defeats Jon, 1900-1800.
Jon (900 + 700 + 0 + 200)
Alana (100 + 200 + 1300 + 300)
Turning point: Jon missed the third question about the amount of books in the Narnia series. Alana then gets an incredibly lucky roll knocking down the Black Knight among others. Both get the final question right, but Jon couldn’t get knock down that one gnome.
Jon "rocks" his way out of King of the Nerds.
I imagined some viewers are crying "rigged!" at the Nerd-Off. It was also convenient the cosplay competition could play into one team leader's strengths. But Blue could've still made a more compelling presentation.

I get that impression. If Orange wins the next Nerd War then they'll probably nominate the Blue nerd least flustered by heel Virgil, even if it's Genevieve.
Then again, it's all in whether the next Nerd War will somehow favor Genevieve.
I think this is the best new show of the season. I'm already more invested in this than The Following, Revolution, 666 Park Avenue, and The Americans. I'm always happy to see the incredibly talented Freddie Highmore get some work.
