Schmoedown Spectacular VI
With the return of normalcy around the corner, Movie Trivia Schmoedown returns to a physical in-person competition with its end-of-the-year event Schmoedown Spectacular VI. The co-host and commissioner of Movie Trivia Schmoedown Kristian Harloff gave LRM Online a preview on what to expect this weekend.
Although Movie Trivia Schmoedown has had physical events in the past few months, the Schmoedown Spectacular VI will be its greatest event that pits five different matches live this Saturday, December 4, at the Globe Theatre in Los Angeles. Not only the event is live, but it will also simultaneously be broadcast on PPV for those who cannot attend the event.

Singles Championship Match – “Lady Justice” Marisol McKee vs. “Downtown” Griffy Newms
Singles Championship Match – “The Outlaw” John Rocha vs. “Dangerous” Dan Murrell
Teams Championship Match – Shazam vs. King Arthur

Movie Trivia Schmoedown is the ultimate in entertainment trivia, which covers all types of film and television and gives the winners a title and bragging rights. Think movie trivia meets wrestling with compelling storylines and characters that you can really get behind or really hate! MTS has created multiple titles of excellence that you can achieve from individual accolades to team titles. This competition provides the opportunity to test your movie/TV knowledge whether you are watching at home or in a live audience. However, the most important part of what MTS is all about is their fans and how they can always engage them in unique ways.
In eight short years, The Movie Trivia Schmoedown has developed an incredibly devoted fan base, who have sold out live events across the country from LA to NY before the pandemic. Their fans are so dedicated to the show that they want to become a part of it and in response, MTS has created separate leagues to accommodate their participation—Developmental league (for those that want to become players) and Fan league (for those that just want to have fun). The loyal fans have also supported MTS on YouTube and Patreon, which currently features 298K subscribers on YouTube with 600-800k monthly views for their programming and 4,000 Patreon subscribers, who receive exclusive access to events and news on the programming. On their social channels, their stats are as follows: 91,000 on Facebook; 62,000 on Twitter; 36,300 on TikTok, and 24,000 on Instagram.
As the show has grown, new talent became involved, including high-profile actors, comedians, writers, directors, producers, and hosts. The idea was to do what eSports did for video games and apply that to trivia.
