"King of the Nerds" is returning for season two and fans can't wait for it. On Jan. 21, Windy City Media Group was able to get some great information on the gay gamer on the show. Could Xander Jeanneret end up winning it all?

He was actually contacted by the show during season one. Xander knew nothing about the show but now he is on the second season of it. He is part of a big gaming community in LA. Actually he turned down season one, but after watching it he realized it was a great show and didn't make fun of people like he was afraid it would do. Xander wanted to be a part of it and now here he is on season two.

"Gaymer" is what he considers himself. This is a gay gamer and he is not the only one to use this term, but some people may have never heard it before. Xander considers himself an open book and is ready to fight for the $100,000 prize at the end of the season.

"King of the Nerds" airs on Thursday nights on TBS. Please like my Facebook to stay up to date on the latest in entertainment news. Also check out my Twitter.
