IDIOTEST, hosted by comedian Ben Gleib (“Chelsea Lately,” “Ben Gleib: Neurotic Gangster”) and based on the highly popular app game, pits two pairs of contestants against each other in several rounds of visual brain teasers that look deceptively simple, but whose answers actually require a sharp eye, quick mind and heightened sense of logic. Every question involves a fun, colorful and often whimsical scene that tests observation and attention to detail. Contestants play the game on giant touch screens, trying to win money…or at least not look stupid. If they fail at both, Gleib is always ready with his irreverent wit and hilarious observational humor.
The new season of IDIOTEST will again feature a number of special episodes, including Hipsters vs. Fashionistas, Teachers vs. Students and Good Girls vs. Bad Boys, plus “rivalry” shows like Ohio State vs. Michigan and USC vs. UCLA, to special all-kids versions of the show. Celebrity comedians participating this season also include Amir K, Jo Koy, Sidney Castillo, Zainab Johnson, Brad Williams, Adam Ray, Ian Bagg, Lachlan Patterson and more.
GSN’s IDIOTEST and host Ben Gleib are celebrating an anti-Valentine’s Day with a special episode featuring four of Gleib’s ex-girlfriends, who’ve come together not only to settle old scores, but also hoping to walk away with $10,000. This beautifully awkward episode illustrating what happens when a game show host’s former flames join him on-stage, premieres Thursday, February 9 at 10:00pm ET/PT, with a special repeat airing on Valentine’s Day, Tuesday, February 14 at 9:00pm ET/PT.
