CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan and former Republican Party chairman Michael Steele competed against each other in the quiz competition airing May 17.

Cooper told Inside Edition that Steele will be the toughest opponent, saying: “I think he's the kind of guy in high school who's like, ‘Oh I didn't study for this test,’ but he really studied hard.”

“[Steele] is trying hard to intimidate me and Anderson and we're totally intimidated,” Logan admitted.

Also competing is comedian Louis C.K., who explained to Inside Edition how he prepared for the event.

“I don't think there's anything I could've done except step in a time machine and go to college, which I didn't do. It'll be what it is,” he joked.
