Matthew Vass claims victory at Brain of Cape Talk quarter-finals at Canal Walk

Canal Walk was abuzz this Saturday as the five Dis-Chem Brain of Cape Talk quarter-finalists from the week battled it out for a R5 000 cash prize and a spot in the semi-final round which is scheduled to take place at the end of February. However it was Matthew Vass who came out victorious.

The mall activation proved nothing less than exhilarating for spectators, players and even the judges. It was a fun-filled event and spectators and contestants got to meet their favourite Cape Talk presenters.

The overall judges made sure no stone was left unturned in the attempt to crown the ultimate fact fanatic from the week.

Matthew along with four other contestants was given 90 seconds to answer a train of 25 questions from John Maythom who was the quiz-master for the day.

The annual competition gives those with a brilliant bank of general knowledge a chance to cash in and show off, both on-air and in front of a live audience at the weekly mall activations.
