    Max is a beast, but the scary part is that Imperial is still a very strong team without him.

      They all collaborate and confer with each other on a wide variety of topics. When it comes to geography though Zeng is like -BOOM "Yeah, I got this."

    It is a team effort & they are very blessed to have each other to work with and to have Max in that team. I like that Max is always very unassuming and doesn’t ever look smug despite his being so knowledgeable.

    All of the 4 got some really tough ones right. All 4 of them deserve the price. But Zeng seems to have a cartographic/photographic memory. You can see him sometimes drawing maps in the air with his fingers. Thats why he also knows the periodic table with all correspondent values by heart. During questions about music or culture, he is normally not as strong, maybe because he has not come across those topics yet. I think people admire Zeng therefor the most, because the knowledge he deliveres is the most remote kind of intelligence we dont witness every day, and on top of that he is incredibly fast to access all these names in his brain. Truly fascinating.

    Mays is the CEO but seeks Jackson the Chairman for approval. Sheriff's the Corporate Secretary and Max just does all his work in his tiny cubicle behind the stockroom

    I think Zeng is definitely a beast and a wild card but Mays is definitely the MVP. From what I’ve watched he’s great at deducing answers due to his vast knowledge on different topics. There are many occurrences wherein Mays would ask Zeng, Sherif and Jackson what would have happened in a particular year, or give them choices based on what he knows and help them deduce the right answer. He also has great intuition as to what he thinks is right or wrong and it also helps that he seems like a very easygoing leader who knows his team well. He’s definitely the key player that will help Imperial win.

      weepin bby Hace 9 meses +19

      @cheesecake if u have watched other episodes, u can clearly tell that the only time where jackson and mays would look at each other is when it’s about a subject they both know about. and to answer your question, they are all best friends off screen (jackson confirmed it on his twt acc). mays is the captain, so to say that he ignores his teammates on purpose is absurd. many speculations were made about him on twt such as he’s misogynistic for not acknowledging sheriff but sheriff herself denied them to be true.

    • da96103
      da96103 Hace 9 meses +13

      It depends on the type of question. Geography and periodic tables go to Zheng. Literature goes the Sheriff. Arts goes to Jackson.

    • cheesecake

      @f u r r e t been wondering about that. Are they strangers to each other? Like new friends? Mays and Jackson looks really close and May always discussed it with Jackson. But in the later round, May did finally turn to Zeng and Sheriff

    • f u r r e t

      You are the one being ignorant as you have not seen a single video of imperial college quizzing. Because if you had you would have known Mays looks at those only when the question is based on the topic they are expertised on. For geography the entire team looks at Zeng. Mays is a good captain and all his teammates have defended him when people like you who don't even know him attacked him.

      It's because he felt guilty for making others in his team feel inferior, and he wanted to include them by reminding and acknowledging his team mates that he's answering as a team rather than as an individual.
