The Game Show Network’s (GSN) highest rated original series of all time, The American Bible Challenge, is preparing to return for its third season. The game show, hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy , is a lively studio-based game in which contestants compete by answering questions drawn from the rich, dense narrative found in the world’s best-selling book, The Bible. In addition, the contestants share their compelling back-stories and each team plays for a charitable organization.
During the show’s second season, GRAMMY winner and multi-platinum selling artist Kirk Franklin, joined Foxworthy as musical co-host. This unique combination of incredible talent has proven to be entertaining, fun and inspirational in this truly unique game format. Last season’s premiere episode garnered the highest ratings in the network’s 18 year history, pulling over 2 million viewers. The game show has now been seen by over 21 million viewers!
In addition to 9 original episodes, season three of The American Bible Challenge will bring a new set of diverse, fun and colorful contestants which include a team of former beauty queens, motorcycle riding priests, police officers and Mormon moms. This season will debut brand new games that put the contestant’s spiritual and physical talents to the test. These season will present new categories such as “Christ or Klingon” in which contestants have to guess whether words are from the Bible or Star Trek‘s Klingon language; “Curse You Autocorrect” where contestants must decipher a typed Bible passage that has been “autocorrected” and “Nazareth Enquirer” with sensational Biblical headlines that could have appeared in a tabloid. Barry Poznick(“Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader,” “Lingo”) joins Tom Forman as Executive Producer for new season.
