Matthew Vass crowned 2018 Dis-Chem Brain of Cape Talk Champion

We've seen some tough battles take place over the last couple of weeks with the biggest fact fanatics showing off their skill in hope of winning the Dischem Brain of Cape Talk title for 2018. The grand finale took place at Table Bay Mall and it was previous Canal Walk quarter final winner Matthew Vass who claimed victory, walking away with whopping R15 000 cash prize.

The atmosphere was exhilarating as spectators came out in numbers to show support and witness all the nail biting action. It was a fun-filled event where players and audiences also got to mingle with their favourite Cape Talk presenters.

Matthew was given 90 seconds to answer a train of 25 questions from John Maytham who was the quiz-master for the day. He managed to only fit in 21 questions which were all 100% correct!

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.

However, this is not where the action ends, Matthew Vass will take on Brain of 702 winner Nathan Mallinson in a fast paced, nail biting clash that will take place on Monday 26 February live on Breakfast with Kieno Kammies at 7:10am. Tune in to hear these two champions do battle and claim the Brain of Brains title with a cash prize of a further R20 000 up for grabs.

May the best brain take the claim!
