Hamilton Tiger-Cats offensive lineman Peter Dyakowski is one of four carefully-chosen candidates attempting to earn the title of CANADA’S SMARTEST PERSON on CBC this Sunday.   

Airing on Sunday, March 18 at 8 p.m., CANADA’S SMARTEST PERSON will feature Dyakowski; high school science teacher, Dr. Marshall Carroll; 23-year-old student and gamer, Laura Suen; and spoken word poet, Greg Frankson participating in a series of fun and spectacular challenges aimed at testing six areas of the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. The person who proves that they have the most versatile smarts will earn the title of CANADA’S SMARTEST PERSON. 

Hosted by comedian Gerry Dee, CANADA’S SMARTEST PERSON is a groundbreaking two-hour television special that will reveal that there is more to intelligence than having a high IQ score or being a whiz at math or trivia.

In 2011, Canadians had the opportunity to nominate themselves, or someone they know, as CANADA’S SMARTEST PERSON. Drawing on the Theory of Multiple Intelligences, show producers used interviews and tests to narrow the field to four participants with well-rounded intelligence profiles.

Dyakowski, a 27-year-old Vancouver native, will suit up for his sixth season with the Ticats in 2012. He is the first Canadian-born athlete to sign a scholarship with Louisiana State University.
