Matt Edmondson presents a provocative and funny studio game show. Clever v Stupid uses surprising games and unusual tasks to challenge the way we look at intelligence.
In each show a team of academically brilliant young people, the 'Clevers' take on a team who some might think are a little bit 'Stupid'. The two teams face quirky challenges that test all different areas of their intelligence, rather than simply measuring IQ and conventional intelligence. With the help of psychologists, the games have been designed to level the playing field between the two teams, making it a fair fight.
Using games based on psychological research the show tests the teams' creativity, their emotional intelligence, their physical dexterity and practical skills.
The winner is decided in a dramatic final round called The Ultimate Mind Game that uses state of the art equipment to test the contestants' brainpower and focus.
A team of supermarket staff take on a musical prodigy, a doctor of pharmacology, an Oxford biologist and a mathematical genius. They are determined to prove to anyone who has ever called them stupid that the customer is not always right.
The teams must use their creative intelligence to save 24 eggs from an 8 foot drop; get practical in a race that relies on their navigation skills; turn liar and detective in an emotional intelligence test; and show their physical prowess when they make a sandwich wearing goggles that turn the world upside down.
