Seriously, amazing contest. And it couldn’t have been that way without all of you trivia players. You made this weekend the best moments of my life…except for that one moment when I got tied up in a chair. But other than that, it was absolutely amazing. Thanks to all of my incredible trivia masters, who wrote the most insane and absurd questions and who helped keep the contest running smoothly. I love all of you kids. A dad couldn’t have asked for better ones and I will truly miss all of our trivia moments together. Congratulations to Ethan Landes, who will be taking the reigns for The Great Midwest Trivia Contest XLVIII. You’re gonna do great, son.

Meme Hour Viral Videos!

(Update: Plantz’s video has been fixed. They are all available on our page!)

Sorry it took so long, but the meme hour viral videos are finally up on our youtube page! You can find all twelve of them at, and they’re all really great. This action question is definitely a total success!


Between now and 2:30 am Sunday morning each off-campus team and trivia master will be able to vote for their favorite video, and at 2:30 am we will tally the votes to announce a winner. So for the off-campus teams here are the guidelines:

  1. Please try to watch all of the videos. If you don’t have time, you don’t have time and that’s the way it is, but please make an effort.
  2. Decide as a team which is your favorite (however you define favorite) and send an email to with the name of the video you want to vote for and your team contact info (name and/or contact phone number). This is being done to validate the votes so no teams can cheat and impersonate other teams.
  3. You may only vote once. If we find your team has more than one vote, we will discount all of your votes.
This has NOTHING to do with view counts, so having people watch your video over and over again gains you nothing. I’m looking at you, Ali Babar.


Sorry for the delay… We have begun to upload pictures from action challenges. More will be added shortly! Sorry about the incomplete captions :/
