Reality Show Will Crown ‘Canada’s Smartest Person’

Reality Show Will Crown ‘Canada’s Smartest Person’

The CBC will air a two-hour reality television special in March to find the smartest person in the country.

“Canada’s Smartest Person” will pit so-called brainiacs against each other to test their intelligence in six areas: logical, visual, physical, linguistic, musical and social.

While having a high I.Q. may help win the competition, it’s not the only requirement casting directors will be looking for.

Applicants have until January 1, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. ET to apply and must be the age of majority in their province or territory of residence at the time of entry.
