by my judgement, a nerd is someone more interested in academics and science as opposed to geeks who are more interested in their hobbies and pop culture. i identify as both, and this show is incredibly inaccurate. i actually suspect that the people featured are actors.
the games look fun though.

Oh I remember seeing the preview awhile back and completely forgot about it. It does look very stupid and gimmicky.

There's so many different facets to "geek culture" that trying to generalize it into a small category of interests and personality-types is a major fail in itself, and is going to rustle the jimmies of many concerning it.

All I see is a producer ran out of ideas, grabbed a bunch of hyper attention whores who happen to call themselves nerds and tried to make something with that. These actors on these types of shows never ever really represent the full truth of geek or nerd culture is but.. that's really hard to do, already.

I'm pretty sure one of the girls is a youtuber. I know that that doesn't discount being/trying to be an actor, but at least there is easily view-able content of her possibly being a nerd/geek on her own before the show.
