"Idiotest" Returns To GSN April 1 For Second Season

In a little less than a month from today, Idiotest returns to GSN with new episodes for its second season beginning Wednesday, April 1 at 8:00pm EST. During the latter half of 2014, the network announced its renewal of the brain-busting game show, hosted by comedian Ben Gleib, and ordered 65 additional episodes to air this year. The show is currently casting for contestants to compete this upcoming season including children ages 11-16 (Go to Craigslist for more information.) Adult applicants can go to for more information on how to apply. You can also prepare yourself for the show or even just play for fun to see smart and observant you are with's "Idiotest Challenge".

It doesn't seem like there will be many changes between seasons, unlike the first series of episodes where the "Smart Money" bonus round was reformatted in the beginning  and later aired midway through the season. The original bonus game had the winning team working together to solve five puzzles in one minute with each correct answer worth $500 and all five right earned the team $10,000. The catch was every time an incorrect answer was selected, five seconds was taken off the clock and the clock would continue to run. Check out the episode below featuring the rarely seen bonus game and you will see why this version of the "Smart Money" round was quickly scrapped (Scroll to 16:33 to see the bonus round).
