Thomas - Child Genius 2015
Thomas made his Child Genius debut five weeks ago, astounding experts across the nation as he exhausted the questions from his first round, and yielding a total of 26 points, 11 more than any other competitor. He took the title again the next week, and the week after, and the week after, until he reached the final. His fellow finalists Jasamrit, Giovanni and Jack were knocked out, but feminist Sasha, the only female finalist, joined Thomas in the Head to Head, eventually losing by 10 points to 3. Despite the more competitive parents enforcing strict study regimes and forcing their children to try to conform to impossible standards, by the end of the competition all the parents were proud of their children. Thomas's speech upon receiving the trophy included "I just want to go on, but I don't think my mum would like that!" He later added "Nature and nurture. You can't have one without the other." Child Genius is available for viewing on Channel 4 On Demand.
