Geeks Of The Week: "5th Grader" Girls

Geeks Of The Week: "5th Grader" Girls

I am opposed to Fox's Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader show on the grounds that I've forgotten most of the trivial knowledge I ever learned and well, I am not really sure if knowing state capitals makes a smart human being. (Don't worry, I do know state capitals, I'm just saying...) Still, I have been charmed by the cute geekiness of Alana, 9, and Laura, 11, the two female 5th graders on the show.


In case you haven't seen the show, it tests adults’ lack of knowledge – as revealed by how much they’ve forgotten since elementary school.

Alana hails from San Diego, CA. Math is her favorite subject and she loves playing with her two dogs. She also displays a passion for dance, especially hip-hop and jazz. Laura is from Los Angeles, CA, loves all school subjects and consistently gets great grades. She has also proven to be quite the matchmaker; she has successfully helped more than one happy couple find love. I know it's hard being a geek as a kid and these too future geeksugar readers make me proud. You go girls!

I'm watching this right now... and oh man, I love the contestant who's playing. Almost to a million! These are some cool kids, though. All the little ones on the show AND Jeff Foxworthy are wonderful folk.
