Dominican Sisters fall short in finals of American Bible Challenge but win Fan Favorite Challenge
Sisters win a total of $55,000 for their charity
ATLANTA, May 24, 2013 – The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist lost to the Wagner Warriors in last night’s finale of Season 2 of the Game Show Network’s hit show “The American Bible Challenge.” But they did, however, win “The American Bible Challenge Fan Favorite” contest, pulling in an additional $10,000 for their charity.
A trio of sisters from the Order — Sister Peter Joseph (novice), Sister Maria Suso (professed sister) and Sister Evangeline (novice) — won a total of $55,000 for their charity, which provides for the treatment and care of the aging sisters in the Order, and to ensure that they are provided for as they advance into retirement. The Ann Arbor, Michigan-based Dominican Sisters showed America that they not only knew their Bible, but that they are a community filled with joy and can have fun.
The American Bible Challenge, produced by Relativity Television, garnered the network’s highest delivery in its 18-year history with 1.7 million total viewers for its August 2012 series premiere. Factoring in the encore airing, the premiere episode, which featured the Dominican Sisters, was watched by over 2 million viewers.
