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 federal politics to world capitals, from sauce names to sports teams. How did he do? “I take serious issue with question 14,” he said, stating this would be the only time he’d stick up for the rival Saskatchewan Roughriders and B.C. Lions. “The CFL is truly a trailblazer.” He scored 80 per cent, anyway.
