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 Oscars and Roman gods, from baseball to Beauty and the Beast. How did he do, after three straight weeks of an identical score? “I broke my 80 per cent streak,” he said. “But it didn’t happen quite the way I imagined it.” He scored 73 per cent.
