We’ve also invited the Maclean’s Genius, Peter Dyakowski, to take the quiz. Dyakowski is a lineman with the CFL’s Hamilton Ticats who also bested the competition in CBC’s Canada’s Smartest Person contest in 2012. And we don’t call him our genius for nothing—he solved the viral Singapore brain teaser that had been stumping the Internet. (And during his workout, no less!)
This week, we tested Dyakowski on everything from Star Trek to Harry Potter, from Monday Night Football to Monopoly. How did he do? “I got the trivia question about trivia wrong,” he says. “I’m not sure what that means.” He scored 80 per cent.
