Andrew Perkins from Centurion was victorious at the third quarterfinals of the Dis-Chem Brain of 702 at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre. He secured his spot in the semifinals after correctly answering 16 questions at the annual quiz competition and walked away with R5 000.
The mall activation was exhilarating for spectators, who were entertained by the amusing Aki Anastasiou. Aki is 702’s traffic presenter, but on the day served as the emcee. He was joined by quizmaster, Azania Mosaka and judges Xolani Gwala and Redi Tlhabi. Relebogile Mabotja and Aubrey Masango were the high court judges.
Aki kicked off the day’s excitement by reeling in members of the audience for two fun-filled rounds of Brain, which tested the general knowledge of those brave enough to compete.

Then it was down to some serious quiz questions for the week’s daily Brains. It was here that Andrew managed to outshine the rest.
Andrew participated and subsequently won Monday’s addition of Brain. This meant that he was one of four contestants to go head to head at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre, and he did it again. He was given 90 seconds to answer a train of 25 questions and managed to answer the most correct.
Next week is the final mall activation in the quarterfinal rounds. Thereafter, the semifinals will take place on the same day. This is all happening next Saturday at the Mall of Africa.
The semi-finals will determine the Dis-Chem Brain of 702 and that person will face the Dis-Chem Brain of CapeTalk in a head to head battle on the stations’ breakfast shows on Monday 27 February. The winner of this on air contest will be named The Brain of Brains.
The annual competition gives those with a brilliant bank of general knowledge a chance to cash in and show off, both on-air and in front of a live audience at the weekly mall activations.
