"Smartest Guy in the Room'' sets out to prove that geniuses aren't always where you expect to find them and sometimes hold blue-collar jobs, like doorman, bartender and plumber. Three such blue-collar geniuses -- all of whom have an IQ of 140 or higher -- are featured on the show that challenges them to complete tasks that aren't as simple as they appear -- each one comes with a twist that makes it more difficult. Doorman Guy Messenger speaks several languages but admits he isn't strong in math; bartender Terry Myers enjoys microbiology, math and gadgets; and teacher's aid Randy Rice is a professional miniature golfer who loves numbers but isn't a big reader.
