STUART, Fla., Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Chancellor Gary is ready to take his brilliance on the road! The homeschooled ten-year old has already received numerous accolades for his extraordinary intelligence, including high honors from Johns Hopkins University CTY International Talent Search. Now, beginning January 7 at 8 p.m., people across the nation can see Chancellor excel at a wide variety of brain power questions-and-answers when he participates in Season 2 of "Child Genius: Battle of the Brightest" on Lifetime Channel.
Considering that Chancellor knew every US president at the tender age of three, he is undaunted by the opportunity to put his intellectual talents to the test. The competition, created in cooperation with American Mensa, tests the competitors on their knowledge in categories such as math, spelling, literature, geography, logic, science and current events.
Chancellor is the son of civil trial attorney Sekou Gary and Taylora O'Bryant Gary, a former Wall Street investment banker, and grandson of famed attorney Willie Gary. In addition to the coursework taught at home by his mother, Chancellor has tutors in physics, chemistry and economics. He studies hard but is committed to his extra-curricular activities which include guitar and basketball. He is also a black belt in Taekwondo and has achieved the First Class rank in Boy Scouts. A video game enthusiast, Chancellor aspires to be a software developer and attorney. In fact, he has already identified projects he hopes to develop including a virtual device that detours neurological signals.
"This is a wonderful showcase and great fun for someone like Chancellor, who loves challenges, learning, and problem solving," said Taylora O'Bryant Gary, Chancellor's mother. "We are so proud of everything Chancellor achieves!"
Added his father, Sekou, "Chancellor had a wonderful experience on this show, and despite the fact that it was highly competitive, he loved the camaraderie of the other contestants who we know will become life-long friends."
The winner of the ten-week program wins a $100,000 college fund.
"Child Genius" is modeled after the popular UK-format, and features 12 outstanding youngsters, all who have proven themselves worthy of this competition.
Chancellor takes on the eleven other contestants, ranging from 9 to 12 years old, as they begin the quest to be named "Child Genius of 2016."
