We’re down to four kids left this week. And frankly I still haven’t gotten over Vivek’s departure last week. The first round will be Advanced Science and the second round will be a topic of each remaining kid’s choice. Sam notices that the room is practically empty now. Arnav is not focused this week. He just wants to goof off. Adrian is very focused. I don’t think Adrian has ever goofed off in his life.
We learn that Sam is one of those people with weird food behaviors. He goes to great lengths to touch his food as little as possible. He is not a fan of finger foods and says they are “unsanitational!” His dad points out many culture don’t used utensils at all and eat from communal platters. If Sam was ever in trouble, his parents could take him to an Ethiopian restaurant as a punishment! (sorry Sam!)
Round One Advanced Science
Arnav is up first. He does well, and gets 9/10 correct.
Adrian gets a 10/10.
Claire is third in this round. Just when you think her dresses can’t get any girlier, they do. Claire got an 8/10.
Sam is up! When Sam was studying for this round there was so much material to cover that they had to prioritize the topics. Sam’s dad did not focus on computer history and Sam had two questions about that. He missed both and got an 8/10. Sam made ugly faces at his father after both questions. I think the pressure is getting to Sam. Sam cries in his seat and turns his back on his parents.
Everyone’s dad except for Adrian’s hang out on the balcony to commiserate. The dads get a lot of grief and none of the glory. Adrian’s dad continues to hover over Adrian. Basically, Adrian is teaching his subject matter to his father. Both Claire and Adrian have chosen Greek Mythology. This MENSA lady…. well. She’s interesting. Sam is doing astronomy, which he should excel at. If the kids pick their own categories, I would expect them all to get tens. Sam is now angry with his mother as well. He is working himself up to not do will in the next round.
Round Two Specialty Topics
Adrian is up first with Greek Mythology. He missed one really obscure question with a 9/10.
Arnav is up next with Marine Biology. I love Arnav, but if he goes home, at least we won’t see the weird wrist clapping anymore. What is the deal with that? Arnav got a 9/10.
Sam is up with Astronomy. Sam got a 9/10.
Claire needs to get a perfect score in Greek Mythology. Claire’s dad wanted her to choose math. But she got a perfect score. 10/10.
Adrian won the day. And sadly, Sam goes home.
Next week, a winner will be crowned out of Homeboy, Claire and Arnav. This whole season has edited Homeslice as the clear winner. He is in all of the commercials, when I search for photos 90% of them are of Adrian. So the question is, is it too obvious? Are they setting us up for an upset? Who do you think will win? Who do you want to win? Thanks for watching this show with me this season. There are not many of us, but it’s been a great ride.
