Katie Correll from "King of the Nerds" is one of the contestants in the TBS reality competition series. She is 24 years old and from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Katie Correll ("King of the Nerds") is a roboticist and puppeteer whose work has appeared on Broadway and who formerly performed in Ballet companies.

Contestant questionnaire:

Nerds or Runts: Runts, but only the banana ones.

Pizza or Chinese food delivery: Chinese food … unless it's really good pizza … Is it really good pizza?

"Star Trek" or "Star Wars": "Stargate SG-1"

"Game of Thrones," "The Walking Dead" or "Battlestar Galactica": "Game of Thrones" — twice the zombies and none of the cylons.

PlayStation, Xbox, Wii or PC: PC, because I don't game, sorry.

"World of Warcraft" or "Call of Duty": Neither!

"BioShock Infinite" or "Fez": I don't even know what those are!

Math or science: Science please!

Edison or Tesla: While Tesla is a scientific bad-ass, and Edison was a bit of a dick, I have to stick with my Cooper Union homeboy. Edison was an 1895 graduate of CU … Pioneer Pride!

Sharpies or Bics: Sharpies. I need to have a double-sided black sharpie within arms reach at all times.

Comic-Con or Dragon Con: Dragon Con (it has puppets).

"Lord of the Rings" or "The Hobbit"? "The Hobbit." I gave up on LOTR during the council of Elrond, sorry.

Vine or Instagram Video: Neither?

Mac or PC: PC. Dual boot in Windows and Ubuntu.

Marvel or DC Comics: Marvel all the way

Droid, iPhone or Blackberry: Windows phone?

"Asteroids" or "Ms. PacMan": "Centipede"!

What character would you be in "Mario Kart"? Never played.

Which family would you belong to in "Game of Thrones" — Stark, Lannister or Targaryen? I'm a devoted Stark. Winter is coming.

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

The one celebrity/icon (past/present) you would have wanted on your team on the show: Theodore Roosevelt. He really was the nerd of his day — a huge fan of naval warfare and biology. He also never took "no" for an answer and was willing to do whatever it took to win. Heck, he started a civil war to get the Panama Canal built!

What planet other than Earth would you live on? Lamuella, Arthur Dent seemed pretty happy there. Although, I'm a vegetarian so I hope there's something other than perfectly normal beast to eat.

Which house would you belong in "Harry Potter"?

The 4 houses of engineering:

• ChemE's are Slytherine, they play with potions.
• EE's are Ravenclaw, they're extra smart.
• CivE's are Hufflepuff, they're essentially useless.
• MechE's are Gryffindor, because we're awesome.

IQ score: IQ scores are just a measure of how well you take standardized tests, do they really matter?

Aliens: exist or myth? I think life exists elsewhere in the universe, but it's not anything like what we have on earth — different respiratory/metabolic functions, etc.

Favorite superhero: Ironman — if engineering is a superpower, then I can be a superhero!

Favorite video game: Does "Rollercoaster Tycoon" count?

Favorite TV show: "Breaking Bad."

Favorite movie: "Rushmore."

Favorite musician or band: Frank Zappa.

Favorite musical Instrument: Vibraphone.

Favorite book: "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency."

Favorite game show: "Faceoff."

Favorite Doctor from "Doctor Who": I've never seen "Doctor Who."

Favorite "King of the Nerds" contestant from last season: I didn't watch it.

If you were trapped on a desert island what three items would you bring?

• Swiss Army Knife.
• Duct Tape.
• George R.R Martin to tell me stories.*

*If I can't have GRRM, can I have googly eyes to put on the local plant life? I gotta know where I stand with 'em.

If you could have a dinner party with three people (alive/dead) whom would you choose?

• Theodore Roosevelt.
• Frank Zappa.
• Peter Cooper.*

*Rough rider, revolutionary and renegade inventor.
