Australia's Brainiest Kid

Show Summary

Australia's Brainiest Kid started as a reality series in the Seven Network but in 2005 it changed over to Channel Ten. Each week, Australian kids would use their wits to answer trivia questions to see who would eventually become Australia's Brainiest Kid. Hosted by Sandra Sully, this television show later became Australia's Brainiest, featuring things like Australia's Brainiest Musician, Housemate, and Footballer etc. There are three rounds of elimination to determine who the winner is. Round 1 The first round contains twelve multiple choice general knowledge questions (four possibilities for each question). The contestant's have five seconds to answer each question and earn one point for each correct answer. The highest five/six go through to the next round. If there is a tie between two or more of the contestant's for the final spot in the second round, a tie breaker is played. Round 2 In the second and third rounds, the order of play is important. This game decides this order. A sequence of digits appears on the screen of 3 digits or more. Each digit corresponds to two or three letters, just as on a telephone keypad. The contestants are given a number code and a word clue. The order of play is the order in which the contestants find the answer. In the second round, the contestants have to choose two categories and had 45 seconds for each category to answer as many questions as possible, earning one point per correct answer. There are twelve categories in all and each category could only be chosen once, making the order of play important. The highest three go through to the next round. Round 3 In the third round, the contestants have to choose numbers from a 6x6 'memory board'. There are five questions in each contestant's special subject and 21 general knowledge questions. The first child's special subject questions were highlighted in red, the second child's in gold, and the third child's in blue. The general knowledge questions are highlighted in silver. Correct answers to general knowledge questions earned one point, questions from their special subject two, and questions from other contestant's special subjects three. The contestants generally choose questions from their own special subject.
