First quarter final winner (Blue Route Mall) - Lieschke Dyers
Our first quarter final winner was Lieschke Dyers who celebrated her birthday the day before winning the R5 000 and a slot in the semi final to win another R15 000.
Considering Lieschke answered 23 of 25 questions correctly, it would suggest the rest of the quarter finalists will have their work cut out for them.
A stand out moment from the week saw Patricia Richards from Durbanville and Zuki Makuzeni in Cape Town set a new record on the Brain of Cape Talk when they both got 15 out of 15 for their round, Patricia became the reigning brain of the day, but was not able to beat Lieschke.
Second quarter final winner (Somerset Mall) - Nazreen Faki
Nazreen Faki joins Lieschke as one of four that will compete for the title of Brain of CapeTalk on 28 February. She wins R5 000 and answered 18 correct to claim the quarter final crown at Somerset Mall.
Third quarter final winner (Bayside Mall) - Goolam Taliep
Goolam Taliep faced tough competition needing at least 18 correct to force a playoff, he scored 20 from his 22 questions securing the third spot in the finals.
Fourth quarter final winner (Tygervalley Mall) - Selwyn Epstein
Selwyn Epstein won the last of the quarter final rounds before having to step up and play in the final. The final winner was Nazreen Faki who added R15 000 to the previous R5 000.
