Plot Synopsis

Hosted by executive producer John Cena, this re-imagined version of the iconic family game show, ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER, where kids help adult contestants put their knowledge to the test with questions taken directly from an elementary school curriculum. This version places kids in the center of the action, as contestants must revisit the classroom to answer six questions on a variety of subjects from the first through fourth grade, before moving on to the final round where they must race against the clock to answer five questions taken from the fifth grade. Each time the contestants answer questions correctly, their bank increases with a possible winning of $100,000. Newly-added elements to the show include an additional "cheat" option and new ways contestants can enlist the help of their grade-school classmates. Joining Cena this season is a rotating cast of 12 brainy fifth graders: Amira from Orlando, FL; Chloe from Queens, NY; Colin from Dallas, TX; Cooper from Porter Ranch, CA; Isabella from St. Cloud, FL; Jamir from Atlanta, GA; Mia from New Orleans, LA; Nick from Broomall, PA; Patrick from Lehigh Valley, PA; Quinne from Los Angeles, CA; Saya from Peachtree City, GA; and Tristan from Aurora, IL. Also executive produced by Mark Burnett, ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER debuts Monday, June 10, 2019 at 7pm ET/PT on Nickelodeon with a full week of new episodes. New episodes will continue to air Monday, June 17, through Wednesday, June 19, at 7pm, before moving to its regular Monday timeslot on June 24 at 7pm.
