News » Matthew Vass claims 2018 Dis-Chem Brain of Brains champion title

The quiz competition has been running for the last 4 weeks concurrently in Cape Town and Joburg, through multiple quiz rounds every day and weekly activation's at one of the regional shopping centres, broadcast live on Cape Talk and 702 respectively. Saturday, 25 Feb 2018,  was the culmination of the two cities, with the 4 weekly winners up against each other to crown the Brain of Cape Talk and Brain of 702 in each city. Finally, yesterday morning (26 Feb 2018) the two winners went head-to-head in a final showdown live on the breakfast shows of Cape Talk and 702.

Matthew said:  "Interestingly enough, the Brain of 702 is Nathan Mallinson, an OK vs me, an OA (Mullins 2002), so it was effectively K Day."

Also, Tom Maydon (Merriman 1997) was one of the weekly winners in Cape Town, and Bruce Whitfield (Merriman 1985) was quizmaster at some of the weekly rounds, so lots of Andrean representation.
