Kirk Cameron To Host Season Two Of ‘NATIONAL BIBLE BEE GAME SHOW’

kirk-001-LFilming launched in January for season two of the National Bible Bee Game Show, hosted by Kirk Cameron. Seventy-two young people from 7 to 18 years of age competed for $260,000 in prize money.

“Since the National Bible Bee started in 2009, I’ve been a fan and supporter,” Cameron, father of six and a well-known actor/producer/speaker, said of the high-energy reality game show style contest. “TheNational Bible Bee Game Show stirs up fun, excitement and a lot of ‘intended consequences’ in homes worldwide.”

The 72 National Bible Bee Game Show players are chosen from National Bible Bee contestants–grouped as primary (ages 7-10), junior (ages 11-14) and seniors (ages 15-18).  From each age division the top 3 percent of contestants compete in the bracket-style scripture-knowledge tourney. Produced by Enthuse Entertainment, season one of the National Bible Bee Game Show reached 80 million homes on three TV networks and broadcast globally on NRB Network, CTN and UPLIFT TV.

“Twenty-five percent of Christians never read the Bible, research says. So Bible literacy is the brass ring,” Emeal (“E.Z.”) Zwayne, national spokesperson for the Bible Bee, said. “The National Bible Bee Game Show flips challenge into opportunity as whole families get into God’s Word to compete together or to cheer on contestants from home.”

Since the National Bible Bee’s first contest in 2009, more than 40,000 young people have participated. Competition begins locally and online; the top 320 local participants advance to nationals.

Last year’s National Bible Bee Game Show winner, Hannah Leary, says the game is far more than learning by rote. “It’s not just memorizing Scripture,” Leary explained. “It’s studying Scripture and being able to dive in deep and understand what God has to say in His Word.”
