Concord, N.C. (June 10, 2013) – Roush Fenway driver and NASCAR champion Carl Edwards will appear on Discovery’s “Big Brain Theory” on Wednesday, June 12th at 7 p.m. EST.
Edwards will join host Kal Pen and full-time judges Dr. Christine Gulbranson and Mark Fuller for his first appearance on the show.
Only four competitors remain in the race to win $50,000 and a one-year contract at WET, the industry leader behind some of the world’s most innovative water-based designed environments. In this week’s episode, four semifinalists face off in a contest to bring a speeding car to a safe stop. In the closest elimination yet, the judges must choose between innovation and simplicity. For two contestants, their road to the finale will prove just a dead end.
“It was a lot of fun,” said Edwards. “I’m looking forward to seeing the show and I learned a lot. There were some very, very smart people out there. They were very impressive.”
About The Big Brain Theory:
The Big Brain Theory: Pure Genius will feature a seemingly impossible engineering challenge to be solved by the contestants each week. Competitors will have just 30 minutes to come up with a solution using their own intellect to complete the challenge. Based on logic and design, the expert panel of judges will determine the best engineering concept and select two captains to lead their team to execute the project. The team with the best design will remain safe, but the losers will face the judges who will determine which member will be eliminated.
