The American Bible Challenge is a Bible-themed American television game
show created by Game Show Network (GSN). It aired for three seasons from
2012 to 2014. Jeff Foxworthy hosts; Kirk Franklin (pictured) joined from
the second season on. Each nine-episode tournament season asks Bible-
related questions in various formats. One round, Stick a Fork in It, has
teams use a spoon to catapult a fork into glasses labeled with different
answers. Another, Kirk's Righteous Remix, has a choir singing songs
relating to the Bible. The three season champions each won $140,000 for
a chosen charity: Team Judson's Legacy chose a leukodystrophy charity in
honor of a son of two of the team members, Team Wagner Warriors chose a
missionary organization founded by the father of the team members, and
Team Bible Belts chose a nonprofit which combines Bible study and
taekwondo. The show debuted as GSN's highest-rated original program. In
2014, it was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game
