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 potting plants and Harry Potter, to bodies of water both mythical and real. How did he do? “I’m back on track,” he said. “A nice confidence boost going into the season opener!” He scored 83 per cent.
