Blaine: First you have to survive the toss up round, hands over your buzzers, the first one to buzz in with the correct answer will get 10 points and the chance to go up against a geek. Now here's how the follow up works. If you beat the geek you get ten points. If he beats you, you get knocked back 5.

i love beat the geeks...when i first started watching it i thought it sucked but the geeks possess a charm that draws me to them. a few minor changes like the prizes from troma have also really enhanced the show. it's probably the only show i would like to be on. blaine capatch is the epitome of that really cute geek that you aren't supposed to like (but do) and he brings with him even more appeal. as with many other excellent and under appreciated shows- beat the geeks will most likely be canceled in the near future but hopefully comedy central will be able to produce more innovative entertainment in the vain of beet the geeks and avoid crap like win ben stein's money.
