The nominated cross-platform project, the Canada's Smartest Person app, allowed players at-home to take intelligence tests that mirror the broadcast, and cross-country results from each time zone are presented back to audiences live. 

Nearly 100,000 Head 2 Head matches were taken, making it one of the most successful peer to peer gaming applications in Canada. To date there have been almost 300,000 downloads of the CSP app and over 1.1 million challenges taken.
