    Hi there very nice website!! Guy .. Beautiful
    .. Superb .. I’ll bookmark your web site and take the feeds also?
    I am satisfied to seek out a lot of useful info right here in the
    submit, we want work out more strategies on this regard, thanks
    for sharing. . . . . . math problem solver – Una
    – Mathematics is vital in many domains, including natural knowledge, engineering,
    medicine, funding and the sociable sciences. Applied mathematics
    has led to new mathematical disciplines entirely, such as game and information theory.
    Mathematicians take part in pure mathematics also, or mathematics because
    of its own sake, with no any application at heart.

    There is absolutely no clear collection separating applied
    and real mathematics, and practical applications for what started out as pure mathematics are learned often.

    hi, I would be perfect for your show because I love sci-fi, fantasy, horror, super hero films (apart from Spider-Man) and I think I specialise in Harry Potter lit and films, I am probably a little bit older than most people who would want to be on the show (32) but I consider myself a worthy adversary to anyone unfortunate enough to end up in a nerd off with me! I am a team player(most of the time) I’m not one to play sneaky tactics behind others backs but I might be convinced to change that to swing things in my favour, I hope you give serious consideration to allowing me to become a part of your next season, or I might just have to put the imperious curse on you!! Thank you for your time

    I am a PhD student in Latin and Roman Studies. I have my Masters in Latin and Greek. I think these speak to the volume of nerdness I possess. I spend my days translating Latin and Greek and absolutely love it. Plus, my favorite show is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I would be great on the show and am that cool, spunky, fun nerd. I also love game shows and am a forever game show geekster who loved watching all the great game shows of the 80s. I hope to be on!


  4. Josh

    Although I’m not so sure that I am of age to participate on this show, I believe I’ve got what it takes to be king of the nerds. My name is Joshua, I am sixteen, I am a very, very avid reader. I’ve participated in numerous smash brothers competitions, and I am very well rounded. Well, except in math, screw that stuff. But, although I’m very certain I won’t be picked, I believe you’d be making a good choice if I was picked.

  8. Joe Cassavaugh

    How about an older nerd. A puzzle guy who thinks most of your contestants may be nerds but they suck at basic puzzle logic and general game strategy. I do the rubiks cube in 35 seconds on average and make a good living as a solo indie developer of computer games. I’m 57 and you can find out more at Thanks.

  9. Tyrell Chopyk

    Hello producers of King Of The Nerds. If indeed you are reading this entry. I am here to tell you that I will be the King of all nerds. Even if premature. I’m also here to tell you that I have dedicated myself to fandom to an extreme degree. I’ve probably watched more then half of the anime out there. I’m also a huge super hero fan especially when it comes to Wolverine he’s the shit! I love video games old and new I still have my snes and nintendo 64. I’ve logged hundreds of hours into WoW. I am also a huge cinema fanatic especially when it comes to horror movies, mostly because I wold survive every horror movie scenario. I love learning about all things occult. Me and a pal of mine even go to a local coven gathering to study the occult. I am very well versed in my mythology and theology; espacialy norse, greek, and egyption.

    I’ve bean collecting swords since I was seven. I love the bronze age and medieval ages in history. My favorite european dynasty is The Plantagenet royal family of england. From which my favorite king rose and fall. Edward II who’s unrelenting revenge for his murdered friend plummeted england into yet more civil strife as he hunted down his cousin and accomplices and exacted revenge upon them. Anyways I’m not going to give you the full story. But the new King Of The Nerds is right here and waiting! Thanks for picking me guys! 🙂

  10. preston patterson

    salutations. I have been watching the show since season one and would think that I’d do great. I love the Greek and roman mythology along with some others, I love to write stories to pass the time. I love anime and manga and just wasting the beautiful day away shielding myself from the sun. I love to cosplay and larp along with the occasional video game here and there. I love math and science and learning new things every chance I get. If I had to classify myself in any kind of nerd category it would have to be a well rounded one.

  14. nickolas adams.

    I am a 16 year old boy with asperger’s syndrome. I have an IQ of 136. I think I would be a really good contender because I know at least something on every subject. I specialize in history.I am a nerd and really have never had any real friends. I take comfort in this show that shows people like me. It would be a dream come true to be on this show. So please consider me for the part.

    May the force be with you!

  15. Briana Magin

    I am perfect for king of the nerds because even the smallest of acquaintances knows to pair that need to me. I am the nerdiest 16 year old girl you will ever meet. That’s right. I said sixteen. I may only be a junior in high school, but that has been more than enough time for me to develop my nerd skills. I have a 4.0 GPA and am currently taking college classes, I have been intellectually advanced my whole life. I am all conference for quiz bowl, my team took first in our conference (we got an official plaque and everything). Science is my favorite subject seeing as I will be a veterinary technician, so anything animal is all me (Pokemon too, because they’re not technically classified as animals). I’m also in marching band, it’s my life, I’m in the drumline. I also play piano and am probably capable of playing any percussion instrument you can name. More of my high school career has been spent in the band room than in any other room in the building. My favorite video game is super smash bros, unless we’re talking gameboys in which case Pokemon crystal. So even though I’m not an “adult” and i might not be “legally” allowed on this show. Don’t look me over! I have the power of the nerd within me. I have the ability to be your queen!

  16. Josh James

    Hello, ive been watching your show for just this past season. I think I’d be a good addition to the show because my whole life I’ve been kind of a shy person, who has walked a tightrope between nerddom and athlete. I don’t relate with many people which has caused me to have my guard up, a sort of introvert. I love reading sci-fi and informative non fiction, and have seen more movies than most people. Ive never joined organized sports, but loved to play with friends non sanctioned Im 26, 5’9 and average looking, although ive been told im handsome. I think a large number of viewers could relate to me, for I am a nerd at heart who seems normal on the outside.
    if you’re looking for just another nerd, skip this reply. if you are however looking for a unique person with a lot of nerd knowledge, maybe consider me.

    Hello I have been watching the show since the beginning, in 2010
    I actually had a school project to make a game show and my idea was something very
    Similar to king of the nerds. If the casting crew would like to see
    The video I made for school please request it, if it helps in the auditions.
    Ever since my beginning I was a nerd, born and raised. Being a need is
    More than a word its a life style. Being a nerd is not able to be simply explained,
    Its more of just who you are. I am a big video gamer as well as comic books.
    But being a nerd means you have a vast knowledge and skill in all things nerdy.
    That what makes me a nerd and a good candidate for the show.
    plus I think I would be good for ratings and could bring a bigger audience
    To the show.
    -thank you for reading and may the force be with you to chose me.
