Congratulations to Adrian Romoff, the pint-sized prodigy who is taking away the $100,000 scholarship prize as the winner of this year’s season of “Child Genius.”
Unfortunately for Adrian, the Lifetime PR twitter account accidentally spoiled his big win 45 minutes before the episode was finished airing, meaning that live tweeters knew the results of the finale before the network was even half-way through finishing the show’s run.
As for the big winner, Adrian began learning piano at the age of four, and his aptitude for the instrument soon became apparent to his mother. Romoff played for Ellen DeGeneres at the age of seven, competed on “America’s Got Talent” when he was nine-years-old and he was accepted to Juilliard all before reaching double digits.
He also skipped six grades in school, entering his sophomore year of high school at just 10 years old. Talk about an overachiever.
Also, not to brag, but Zap2it correctly predicted the Top 3 of Adrian, Arnav and Claire were ones to watch when Season 2 premiered.
