Jack Hou in "King of the Nerds"
Jack Hou King of the Nerds
is the DnD vs. "Magic: The Gathering" question?!

"Game of Thrones," "The Walking Dead" or "Battlestar Galactica": "Game of Thrones" by a mile.

PlayStation, Xbox, Wii or PC: PlayStation.

"World of Warcraft" or "Call of Duty": I don't play non-"Magic: The Gathering" online games.

"BioShock Infinite" or "Fez": DK/DC.

Math or science: Why is that a question??? They are entwined subject matters, and you really can appreciate math without the scientific advancements it led to and you can't appreciate science without the math that forms its backbone.

Edison or Tesla: Edison. Both contributed greatly to science and engineering, but at the end of the day, one guy died admired, rich, and loved, and the other died alone, broke, and paranoid of a Martian takeover.

Sharpies or Bics: Uhhhhh……..

Comic-Con or Dragon Con: Can't say, haven't been to either.

"Lord of the Rings" or "The Hobbit"? "Hobbit" book, but "Lord of the Rings" movie.

Vine or Instagram Video: I am an old geezer inside. I have no clue what either of those do.

Mac or PC: LINUX!

Marvel or DC Comics: I really don't care.

Droid, iPhone or Blackberry: Android. It's Linux!

"Asteroids" or "Ms. Pac-Man": "Asteroids."

What character would you be in "Mario Kart"? Luigi, the overlooked sidekick.

Which family would you belong to in "Game of Thrones" — Stark, Lannister or Targaryen? Lannister, then Baratheon. Definitely not Targaryen.

If you have a pet (what they are and what their name is): No pets.

The one celebrity/icon (past/present) you would have wanted on your team on the show: N/A.

What planet other than Earth would you live on? Uranus (lol). But to be honest, I was fascinated by Uranus as a kid due to its tilt before I knew what the name meant. All in all, Uranus is full of Methane, and it would be a nice place to visit, but I don't know how long I would last in there.

Which house would you belong in "Harry Potter"? Hufflypuffy.

IQ score: over 9000?? (I really don't know.)

Aliens: exist or myth? We know they exist from meteorite evidence, but are rather unremarkable being microbes and such.

Favorite superhero: L (He could use the death note to kill Superman, but wouldn't because he's such a cool guy unlike Light.)

Favorite video game: "Chrono Cross." (Just beating out the trigger.)

Favorite TV show: "Game of Thrones."

Favorite movie: Like I watch movies ^_^ I really like "How to Train Your Dragon."

Favorite musician or band: Las estadisticas dicen que escucho a La Quinta Estacion (My guilty Spanish Love/Heartbreak band).

Favorite musical instrument: Piano, the only one I can somewhat play.

Favorite book: Any Agatha Christie book.

Favorite game show: If not KOTN, then "Jeopardy."

Favorite Doctor from "Doctor Who": Let me roll my dodecahedron…

Favorite "King of the Nerds" contestant from last season: Virgil… Virgil! VIRGIL!!!!
