The American Bible Challenge (premiered August 23 at 8/7c on Game Show Network)
Website | Trailer | Facebook | Twitter
Okay, we don’t even own a TV, but if we did, this would totally be a show that we would watch. I love game shows. The Price is Right. Newlywed Game. Double Dare. Family Feud. Who Wants to be a Millionaire. I grew up on this stuff! But this show is different. I randomly bought a game that was similar to Trivial Pursuit, but it was the Bible version. So not the same. I think there’s a Bible version of Apples to Apples. Again, not the same. The Bible is not usually a fun or funny topic. BUT, did you check out who the host of The American Bible Challenge is? Jeff Foxworthy. He’s a funny guy, and I’m sure he will bring out a whole new side to the Bible during this game show. And another positive spin to the show is that all the contestants aren’t just displaying knowledge of the Bible, but they are also LIVING IT OUT! There is a story behind each person who goes on the show. They are all playing to win money for a charity. How awesome is that! They are playing to make a change. So, if you get the Gameshow Network on your TV, I might be heading to your house on Thursdays to watch this!
