Cape Town scoops the Dis-Chem Brain of Brains title

Cape Town has finally dethroned Johannesburg and claimed the Dis-Chem Brain of Brains title.

The ‘Mastermind’ Eben Daniels made Cape Town very proud for winning Brain of Brains against the Brain of 702 winner, Andrew Perkins.

The very nervous Daniels scored only 4 in the first round and started gaining momentum in the second round. It was only in the third round that he moved swiftly through 13 questions, answering 11 questions correctly.

Round 1

Eben - 4/11

Andrew - 12/13

Round 2

Andrew - 8/11

Eben - 9/13

Round 3

Eben - 11/13

Andrew - 10/13

The last time Cape Town won The Dis-Chem Brain of Brains was in 2013. Congratulations to Eben Daniels!!!
