Double Down Preview
October 31, 2017
Get ready for Season 13 of ‘Double Down’
By Andrew Godnick
Are you ready to feel disappointed with your intelligence? Are you ready to be out-smarted, out-worked, and out-trained? Well, you’re about to face the hardest test of your life on Sunday, Nov. 5 at 6 p.m. — except, you’ll be behind the cameras.
Tune into WCNY to watch the season premiere of the new high school game show Double Down where students will face challenging questions covering a wide array of topics. From science and math to literature and current event topics, these smart versatile students will get to show the world how much we, the viewers, really don’t know. Tune in to find out if your 5th grade teacher really gave you a life time supply of knowledge.
The competition will be broken down into teams of three where the students will compete for prizes, but as we all know, the real prize are the bragging rights that come along with winning. We all know that feeling of walking into class on Monday with something to brag about during the five minutes before the teacher starts class. The buzz is alive in the classroom as all your friends, and your crush sitting in the corner, turn their attention towards you for the rest of the day. This is a chance for these students to feel the glory of putting their handwork to use in front of their friends, family, and, oh yeah, the endless amount of world wide viewers.
Tune in on Sunday, Nov. 5 at 6 p .m. to find out who this year’s first Double Down winners will be.◄ Back to News
