Bad week for ex-winners of ‘The Smartest Man in the World’. After Lieven Scheire, Gilles Van Bouwel also had to leave the arena of ‘De verslimste mens’ early. As exceptional punishment he still managed the final on Tuesday, so meagerly did he play this time against Bart Cannaerts. Zero right answers about archer Paul Vermeire, Deus studio album titles and Dutch author Rutger Bregman killed him. Newcomer Lotte Vanwezemael upheld the honor of the ladies and won.
