Comedian Ben Gleib Returns as Host; Special Celebrity Contestants Include Dr. Drew Pinsky and Mike Catherwood of “Loveline” and YouTube stars GloZell Green and Gaby Dunn

March 16, 2016, SANTA MONICA, Calif. — GSN, the leader in game shows and competitive entertainment, announced today its original hit series IDIOTEST, hosted by comedian Ben Gleib, will return for a 40-episode third season, beginning Tuesday, April 12 at 10:00pm ET/PT. 

The premiere episode will feature celebrity contestants Dr. Drew Pinsky and Mike Catherwood of “Loveline” facing off against YouTube starsGloZell Green and Gaby Dunn.  Upcoming special shows this season also include an “all-nude” episode, a 1970s version of the show, a “Chelsea Lately” reunion and the cast of NBC’s “Undateable,” among others. 

IDIOTEST, based on the highly popular app game, gives two pairs of contestants the opportunity to face off in several rounds of visual brain teasers that look deceptively simple, but whose answers actually require a keen eye, quick mind and heightened sense of logic. Every question involves a fun, colorful and often whimsical scene that tests observation and attention to detail.  Contestants play the game on giant touch screens, trying to win money...or at least not look stupid.  If they fail at both, Gleib is always ready with his irreverent wit and hilarious observational humor.

Since IDIOTEST launched in 2014, the show has been seen by over 31.6 million total unique viewers.  Season two viewership also increased over last year in total viewers and W18-49, and in its regular Wednesday 10pm timeslot last summer, the show boosted the year ago timeslot by 28% in P18-49, 26% W18-49, 11% P25-54, and 7% W25-54,.  Season two also saw the show garner its highest-rated episode ever in the key P18-49 and W18-49 demos.

IDIOTEST is produced by Little Wooden Boat Productions, Inc.  Executive Producers are Mark Cronin of Little Wooden Boat Productions, Adam Rosenblatt, Jamie Rosenblatt and Christian Horner of H2R Productions; Ryan Devlin and Shawn Greenson of He Shoots, He Scores Productions, and Larry Barron, Ryan Curtis and Craig Brooks.  Ben Gleib also now serves as an executive producer on the series.
