The contestants will share their compelling back stories and each team will be playing for a worthy faith-based organization. "I am excited to be hosting a show about the bestselling book of all time. It will be interesting to find out what people really know, and an opportunity to present the Bible in a fun and entertaining way,” says Foxworthy.
While I'm sure Jeff and the show's producers think they've got the concept for this show all figured out, I already have some ideas of ways it could be better. For example:
1) When a contestant loses, he/she falls through a trap door into an actual lake of fire.
2) The show's announcer should be dressed as Jesus, and sit there chuckling out loud at all of Jeff's jokes.
3) One category should be called, "Justify that Bible Quote" in which the contestant has to justify the existence of an obviously immoral Bible verse such as this one:
"Happy those who seize your children and smash them against a rock." (Psalm 137:9)
Now that's a show I'd watch. (Got any ideas of your own?)
