USC senior NOT smarter than a 5th grader

Anyone here see this on TV last night?

Deadspin has a post about USC student Chris Washington missing a bunch of questions on FOX's show "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?"

Among other things, he didn't know George Washington's wife's name, he didn't know how many pounds were in a ton or that the official language of Australia was English.

As Deadspin pointed out, the 'SC student has a GPA of 3.5 -- so the grades are probably inflated for everyone, not just the athletes.

How do UCLA students do in game shows? In case you forgot, one of our own won College Jeopardy, which was held at USC.

Sadly, USC's Washington won more money than UCLA's Cliff Galiher, even though fifth graders had to bail out the Trojan multiple times.

Also, Jeopardy is a much more mentally challenging game show than "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?"
