Teams Revealed For Third Season of "American Bible Challenge"

In about a month from today, The American Bible Challenge will be kicking off its third season off on GSN. On Wednesday via press release, GSN announced the roster of the 18 three-person teams who will be competing in the upcoming season, which begins Thursday, May 22 at 8:00pm ET. Jeff Foxworthy will once again take the helm with Kirk Franklin serving as co-host/music director and give one team the opportunity to win over $140,000 toward their favorite charity. Like every year, these teams come from all walks of life and range in various professions from motorcycle riding priests to former beauty queens. In addition to new teams, this season will also bring new mini-Biblical trivia games including delineating between words from the Bible and words from Star Trek’s Klingon language in “Christ or Klingon” and decoding mistakenly “autocorrected” Bible passages in “Curse You Autocorrect”.
