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.

For proud trivia Geeks!
5 March 2002 | by (Bristol, CT) – See all my reviews

The ultimate anti-game show, where contestants answer questions in four categories: 1) music 2) movies 3) TV 4) a separate misc. category every show. Then later, four Geeks, respectively representing these categories, are challenged by the players, who get easy questions. But the Geeks must give up their medals if they miss their harder questions! And folks, these Geeks really do know their senseless trivia. When they answer right you'll be amazed! When they don't answer right, you'll be shocked! The final round pits one person against the Geek of choice. The questions ranged from easy to difficult.

Rather than being intellectual like "Jeopardy" or endless like "Who wants to be a Millionaire", it's merely brain-easy trivia. The all-knowing Geeks were the stars, and Comedy Central wrongly let them go by canceling this trivial fun-fest.
