Comedian Jeff Foxworthy is on tap to host a Bible game show with the winnings going to a charity designated by the contestants.
The show is called the American Bible Challenge, and will be shown on the Game Show Network, beginning August 23. Each episode will have three teams competing to advance to the next round and for $100,000 in prize money, the Catholic News Agency reported.
Producer Maura Dunbar told CNS
that the show will highlight the “compelling back stories” of the competitors, who are on the show “to play for a reason.” She added that Foxworthy is exited to do the show and noted he is a committed Christian” who “lives out his faith,” CNS reported.
“How cool to actually go on and play a game where you’re not reaping the benefit, but you’re turning around and blessing somebody else,” Foxworthy said in a GSN video according to CNS. “That’s why I think it’ll work.”
