A Halifax gay man won the CBC’s Test the Nation competition last night.
Hosted by George Stroumboulopoulos and Carole MacNeil, the trivia show pitted six in-studio teams against each other in a battle of brainpower.
Gay atheist activist Kevin Kindred was declared the smartest in-studio individual with an IQ of 140. His team, a group of atheists, placed third overall, behind the nerds and politicians.
Kindred is a past-chair of the Nova Scotia Rainbow Action Project.
But the best part of last night’s show? The team of religious believers and contact-sport athletes (brain injuries, anyone?) tied for fourth place.
Kindred won a 52” LCD TV and bragging rights.
Did you miss it? Watch the show on CBC.ca. Kindred is declared the smartest individual around the 90-minute mark.
