If you haven’t heard yet, The Big Bang Theory team of Steve Barnes, Ralph Blank, Charlie Elmore and Shawn Gach won the first ever BAT Games. The Games were a training and team building event through transportation trivia and physical challenges.

Charlie Elmore won Noodling Around.

“All in all, I think team work, the willingness to help each other out and a nice blend of teammates really sealed the deal for us,” said Barnes.

He explained they figured out their strength was in trivia- he and Blank had a great deal of experience, Elmore had worked in different divisions and Gach was a newcomer who had some of the information fresh from training. But, the team also won four of the physical challenges.

“I gotta give a shout out to Shawn Gach for shaking his Kleenex box like a backup dancer in a rap video, Charlie for his steadiness with a spaghetti in his mouth and a special shout out to Ralph who could bounce erasers for a living, if he wasn’t a broker and also bringing us home with the Chocolate Unicorn when all the chips were down,” Barnes said.

Winners were:

  • Speed Eraser- Ralph Blank
  • Noodling Around- Charlie Elmore
  • Bite Me- Katie Forney
  • Nose Dive: Anthony Harder and Charlie Elmore (Harder won tie breaker)
  • Mad Dog: Chuck Kizer
  • Chocolate Unicorn: Ralph Blank
