"America's Scientist Idol" game show

The battle is on for the title of "America's Scientist Idol." Videotaped at the 2013 annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, this "game show" pits six scientists against each other to see who can best communicate their work in three minutes or less. Judges include Jennifer Bogo of Popular Science, Corey Powell of Discover magazine, and Indre Viskontas of Point of Inquiry. The show is hosted by science journalist and author Chris Mooney. Who do you think should be sent to Hollywood?
