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 cinematic presidents to dinosaur history, from the TV show Lost to pastry names. How did he do? “Oh my goodness! My worst score of 2016!” he said. “They’re going to tear me apart on Twitter!” He scored 63 per cent.
