Channel 10 has dropped the first look promo for the network’s brand-new quiz format – Shaun Micallef’s Brain Eisteddfod.

The one-hour, weekly quiz program is hosted by actor, writer, television presenter and one of Australia’s favourite comedians Shaun Micallef.

Over ten weeks Shaun Micallef’s Brain Eisteddfod brings together eighteen schools from around Australia and will pit their best and brightest Year 11 students against each other to determine Australia’s biggest brains.

Teams of three will combine for testing of their knowledge on a range of subjects from English, Mathematics, History, Foreign Languages to Biology and Economics, and much more for a fiercely contested and fun-filled one hour of entertainment.

Viewers will see Shaun’s natural ability to engage and encourage the young contestants with his unique mix of quick-fire humour and razor-sharp wit.”

Announcing the new show earlier this year, Shaun Micallef said:

“I’ve always believed there was intelligent life on this planet, and I am delighted and proud to be part of Channel TEN’s efforts to discover it right here in Australia.

Also, I was once a Year 11 student myself and will be using my old notes to double-check the answers.”

“I’m thrilled to be working with Shaun again on this exciting new series. It is the third time we have collaborated, and our partnership has always been both respectful and successful. I really admire his passion and commitment to his work and the team.

Shaun Micallef’s Brain Eisteddfod is a Lune Media production in association with Giant Baby for Network Ten Australia. The series is based on an original concept from Giant Baby and Lune Media. Executive Producers are David Galloway, Shaun Micallef and Leonie Lowe.

  1. I watched the first episode of Brain Eisteddfod and was disgusted by the poor quality. That was compounded by the math question re the ages of 2 guys where the first student gave the wrong answer and the second student gave the answer 45 and was told that it was incorrect therefore he lost points. Stupid Shaun said it was incorrect and the correct answer was 36 and he showed a card alleged to have the working. However he was demonstrably wrong
    the working is
    R1 + 28 = 45 therefore R1 = 17
    R2 + 6 = 3 R1 = 51 therefore R2 = 45

    • No, the correct answer for that question was indeed 36; you haven’t accounted for the fact that both persons age by 6 years.
      The 2 statements were: “r2 is 28 years older than r1”, and “in 6 years, r2 will be 3x the age of r1”.
      Mathematically, these are:
      r2 = r1 + 28
      r2 + 6 = 3(r1 + 6) => r2 = 3r1 + 12
      Combining these equations gives:
      3r1 + 12 = r1 + 28 => 2r1 = 16
      And so:
      r1 = 8, r2 = 36
