‘Big Brain Theory: Pure Genius’ Starts Tomorrow

Reality competition show “The Big Brain Theory: Pure Genius” premieres tomorrow night on Discovery Channel (9 p.m. CT).

Each week, contestants will be teamed to attempt seemingly impossible engineering challenges in just 30 minutes. Judges will eliminate one contestant per episode.

The winner will earn $50,000 and a one-year contract to work at WET, the industry leader behind some of the world’s most innovative water-based designed environments and experiences including the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas.

The cameras will follow the pressure both in the design workshop and in the competitors’ shared living quarters.

Actor/producer Kal Penn will host, joined by judges Mark Fuller, President and CEO of WET, and Dr. Christine Gulbranson, a nanotechnologist and renewable energy innovator.
