Game Show Network and the creators of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" have come up with a new competition and they're looking for people with a passion for the Bible.

GSN's "The American Bible Challenge" will conduct auditions June 1 through 3 near Chicago. The show pits Bible enthusiasts against each other in a trivia quiz format in which competitors play to win money for their favorite charities. Jeff Foxworthy will host the show.

To participate in the auditions, send your name, age, contact info, and a current photo to and pre-register at

When: 10 a.m.-6 p.m. June 1 & 2 and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. June 3
Where: Crown Plaza Glen Ellyn Lombard Hotel, 1250 Roosevelt Road, Glen Ellyn, IL

Casting producers are looking for individual players or teams of three people who have competitive spirits, great personal testimonies, a general knowledge of pop culture and, of course, a knowledge of the Bible.

Those selected will be flown to L.A. for the taping, with airfare and hotel accommodations paid for by the show.

"I am excited to be hosting a show about the best-selling book of all time," Foxworthy, who already hosts GSN's "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" said in a May 13 announcement about the series.
