Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? Prove It!

Hey, do you remember the original Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?


Fox

Apparently it’s been revived and is currently hosted by John Cena, but we’re talking about the 2007 edition.

It was hosted by Jeff Foxworthy and paired adults trying to prove their knowledge with actual fifth graders, who were there to help share their knowledge.

But we don’t have any fifth graders here. This test is all you!

Answer the following eleven questions from an actual episode of the show to see if you’re ~actually smarter than one.~

So, let’s find out — are you smarter than a fifth grader?
