Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old?
Sunday 9 September, 7.30pm

The bell has rung and it’s time for class! The smash hit game show, Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old?, gives New Zealanders the chance to win big money – or face the shame of being beaten by a bunch of 10-year-old school kids.

Hosted by Dominic Bowden in the role of headmaster, the contestants on Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old? have the opportunity to win up to $100,000. All they have to do is answer primary school level questions – and prove they really are smarter than the resident cast of 10-year-olds.
The contestants are even allowed to cheat! They can sneak a peek at one of the 10-year-old’s answers and decide whether or not to use it. They can copy a 10-year-old’s answer. And if they get an answer wrong, one of the kids could even save them with a correct answer.

What could be easier? Beating primary-schoolers at their own game should be like taking candy from kids, right? Wrong! This hilarious and addictive game show reveals that even the smartest adults find it tough to outsmart a smarty-pants 10-year-old.

If they beat the odds – and those brainy kids – and they could win $100,000! But, if they fail to remember those primary school facts and figures, they’ll have to face the national television audience and admit, “I am not smarter than a 10-year-old”.

“It’s a show that tests the contestants not on what they know, but what they have forgotten,” says Dominic Bowden. “This is a new and challenging show for me – it’s quite different to my usual formats. The kids are fantastic; they are the real stars of this show and I know that New Zealand is going to fall in love with them.”

Tune in for all the fun, and test your own knowledge to see if you are smarter than a 10-year-old, TV2 Sunday 9 September, 7.30pm.
