Fanarchy is a weekly American sports debate show hosted by Zach Selwyn that airs on Versus.[1][2] The show involves fans on webcams debating each other about current events in sports. The show's presentation is similar to ESPN's Around the Horn, except that the debaters are amateurs rather than sports journalists. Each week, seven fans debate each other, with the host eliminating two by the end of the show. The remaining five fans return the following week with two new fans chosen from entries on the show's website, which describes the process as "an experiment in sportsworld Social Darwinism."[1][3] The show also involves a game show-like element, where two of the panelists compete in a topical trivia challenge, with the winner receiving immunity from elimination.
