Another week, another Nerd gets a goofy send-off.

This week, the Nerds get to maneuver a toy copter through various gates and shoot it down in opposition.

Virgil pulls a miraculous rally go give Blue…er, Blextrophy the 2520-2300 win over Servants of the Forsaken Orb (Orange).

Joshua goes from arrogant to deceitful as he lied to Danielle about changing his mind away from voting for her to the Nerd-Off. Brandon's the unanimous choice of Blue.

Danielle shouldn't have worried about betrayal because Brandon's not adept at controlling radio-controlled golf carts. Danielle won the Nerd-Off scoring 2 goals first. The Servants will feel uneasy because they wanted Brandon to win.


Yes, Blue was cheerleading for Danielle.

Next week may be more drama with Orange likely uneasy over Danielle sticking around. Brandon, a TV-ready personality featured heavily in promotional material, is gone from Nerdvana.



Full recap, and Danielle even made some helpful comments: the pink-haired bubbly assistant moving chess pieces and refereeing RC golf cart soccer is Mindy Thompson and Hendrik, the 1st Nerd eliminated, is a cool dude.

P.S. I had a guy in last show's comments claim KotN's rigged because Brandon may have been given faulty equipment for the Nerd-Off. The footage where Brandon is shown expressing his struggle with RC vehicles says otherwise.

Wow, blue really pulled it together. A loss there would have completely demoralized them, beyond where they were before this episode.

As long as Moog and/or Danielle are still on the show, I'll keep watching.

EDIT: Robert is such an afterthought. I don't know why they REALLY need him since Curtis is THE host and every so often Robert will get a line or two. If they have a season 2, they wouldn't really need him at all.

I interviewed Brandon and Danielle and I'll post sometime later today (I hope!).

I also shouldn't have read TBS' upcoming schedule for the show because it may have revealed who wins the next Nerd War.

Completely agree.

Most of the time Robert seems to come off as if he doesn't even want to be there.

I saw a yahoo video clip, the Yo show I think, and Bobby and Curtis were interview. Apparently, Bobby came up with this idea 6-7 years ago but none of the reality tv houses were interested so he and his wife just sat on it. She nudged him to try to pitch it again and Bobby brought Curtis on board and his treatment is what really sold the show to the network.

So, while it feels like Bobby is the afterthought, he is the creator.
