|"Beat the Geeks" is a one-of-a-kind game show designed to allow the true "geek" to defend his wealth of knowledge, as ordinary contestants summon the courage to challenge the Geeks in their self-proclaimed area of Uber-knowledge. Hosted by J. Keith van Straaten and his Geek-adoring co-host, Tiffany, each half-hour episode features three resident Geeks, who specialize in the areas of TV, movies and music. A fourth expert serves as the "Special Guest Geek," whose forte varies each week including expertise on Playboy, Comic Book, "Star Trek," James Bond, "Friends," "Star Wars," Hip Hop, Michael Jackson and the "Sopranos."
For the "Beat the Geeks" challengers, the mission is to take the Geeks back in their rightful place and win a variety of prizes. For the Geeks, it's a shot at fame and a chance to prove that the time spent down in the basement by themselves was well worth it.
