If you live in Australia like I do, unless you’ve been hiding under a rock (or behind a PC) you’ll no doubt have heard about Masterchef. The TV cooking show that has channel Ten’s prime time viewing hour, most nights of the week.
Or maybe you have seen one of those singing shows such as The Voice or Australia’s got talent.
They all follow a similar model. Get a large number of people with a common interest. Place them in an environment that tests every part of who they are. From there skills to their character. Then the boring ones get kicked off and the really good and exciting ones stay on.
Well I think it’s about time that we had a TV like that for geeks (and no, Beauty and the Geek doesn’t count!). We’ll call it Mastergeek.
It will test everything known to a geek plus some. Invention tests from scrap piles of electronics where geeks have only a mater of hours to build a robot. Pressure tests where geeks will be pumped with caffeine and then set about the task of hacking a seemly impossible network…all while keeping there heart rate under 80 bbm. The stakes will be high…but the glory of wining higher.
Move over Masterchef, Mastergeek is coming.
