CANADA’S SMARTEST PERSON JUNIOR stream on CBC Gem
Hosted by Paul Sun-Hyung Lee (Kim’s Convenience), CANADA’S SMARTEST PERSON JUNIOR is inspired by The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, like the grownup version of the competition format. Over six weeks, 12 remarkable Canadian kids will showcase their smarts in fun and spectacular challenges across six categories: physical, musical, social, linguistic, logical, and visual smarts. In this entertaining and action-packed series, the young competitors will battle for the coveted title of Canada’s Smartest Person Junior with the whole country cheering them on. Applications are now open to kids who excel in diverse fields such as: dancing; gaming; snowboarding; doing puzzles; playing music; debating; creating science fair projects; raising horses; making movies; or telling jokes; because, after all, intelligence comes in all shapes and sizes.
In a twist on the original format, audiences will see the same cast of incredible kids week-to-week. Those competitors with the strongest performances each week will advance to the next episode, while the others will be up for elimination. In the season finale, the top six finalists will go head-to-head one final time. The competition will culminate in a heart-stopping showdown between the top two combatants in the world’s most intense intelligence obstacle course, the Super Gauntlet, for the chance to be named Canada’s Smartest Person Junior.
CANADA’S SMARTEST PERSON JUNIOR is based on the hit format Canada’s Smartest Person and is produced by award-winning Media Headquarters. Robert Cohen is Executive Producer and Creator. It will be shot in front of a live studio audience at the Canadian Broadcast Centre in Toronto in summer 2018
