Team Geniuses


Charles, Frank and Sam met as students at Southern Methodist, where they all still attend college. According to their IQ ratings (and near-perfect SAT scores), the three friends qualify as geniuses. Charles is the most conservative and attends SMU on a full scholarship. Frank is witty and sarcastic and thinks he knows everything about women. But it?s Sam, half-Indian and half-Polynesian, who is the self-proclaimed ladies man. Will brains beat out brawn in the hunt for the gold?

Strengths: Intelligence, dedication.

Weaknesses: Big egos.

Fun Fact: Frank has numerous nicknames including Frank The Tank, The Donger and F-bomb.

Francis is currently a pre-med student at Southern Methodist University. He hails from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was awarded the Presidential Scholarship to SMU, the University?s highest honor. Francis doesn?t see the drastic religious and political differences within his team as a handicap, but loves engaging in debates with his teammates, knowing that their friendship will never be compromised by their beliefs.

Sam met his teammates in his organic chemistry lab, Charles being his T.A., and Francis a classmate. Sam, a student at Southern Methodist University, is working towards his B.S. in biology, a B.A. in chemistry, and a B.S. in economics with finance. Sam says that the Geniuses may be their own worst enemy ? their biggest weakness being their egos. But Sam credits their intelligence and work ethic as the qualities that will help their team to succeed. Sam's main incentive for winning ?Treasure Hunters? is that he wants to establish a college fund for his best friend's newborn son. Sam wishes one day to become a doctor and open a free geriatric clinic.
