Season three of The American Bible Challenge will bring a new set of diverse, fun and colorful contestants which include a team of former beauty queens, motorcycle riding priests, police officers and Mormon moms. The show has also added brand new games that put the contestant’s spiritual and physical talents to the test with new categories that include “Christ or Klingon” in which contestants have to guess whether words are from the Bible or Star Trek’s Klingon language; “Curse You Autocorrect” where contestants must decipher a typed Bible passage that has been “autocorrected” and “Nazareth Enquirer” with sensational Biblical headlines that could have appeared in a tabloid.
GRAMMY® winner and multi-platinum-selling musician and producer Kirk Franklin, known for his unique style of Gospel music, serves as musical co-host. His sense if humor and aptitude to make people comfortable make the show a must watch.
Season three premieres on Thursday, May 22nd at 8 PM (ET/PT) with two back-to-back original episodes and continues with new episodes Thursdays at 8 PM (ET/PT) on GSN.
