Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader Cast Update: Meet the Kids!

FOX‘s hit quiz show is back this summer to entertain the crowd! Jeff Foxworthy and six smart kids are ready for another season of “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader,” which premieres on Tuesday, May 26, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. Read on to know the new batch of fifth graders.

The show is popular because of intelligent kids who are ready to help adults in answering questions until the $1 million round. This season’s kids were picked from a nationwide search.


First is nine-year-old Angela from Northridge, California. Her dream is to be an author. She claimed that her dog, Bentley, is her “study buddy” that helps her during homework. She idolizes Betsy Ross and likes Darth Vader. Her mother was a principal, so it became easy for Angela to seek help for homework.

Meanwhile, the 10-year-old Mason came from Woodland Hills, California. He is homeschooled by his mother. He has the best of both worlds because he loves academics and sports. He likes football, swimming, baseball and skateboarding. He is even a fan of the Oakland Raiders. His family is Hispanic and owns a tortilla company. Surprisingly, his dream is to be a comedian.

On the other hand, Lauren is a 10-year-old girl from Riverside, California. She comes from a huge family and even has siblings who are triplets. Aside from the big crowd of family members, her household is also a pet sanctuary. They have a hamster, a fish, a cat and two dogs. She is an avid reader and managed to finish all the “Percy Jackson” and “Harry Potter” books. Other than being smart, she is also an athlete. She currently does gymnastics.

Next is Dee, 10, from Jonesboro, Georgia. He has a baby brother whom he loves to take good care of. He loves anything Japanese, especially animation and manga. He loves to play video games and wear glasses. Interestingly, he believes that being nerdy is “cool.” However, unexpectedly, he is a Britney Spears fanatic.

A 10-year-old from Olive Branch, Mississippi is incredibly smart and talented. Reagan is so good at singing that she was chosen to perform the National Anthem for a basketball game of Memphis Grizzlies. Like Mason, she also loves sports, specifically soccer, kickball and softball. She likes mysteries, so she reads Nancy Drew by heart. Her dream is to visit New York City and see the Statue of Liberty. She is one lucky girl to meet Taylor Swift.

Lastly, Tres, from Helotes, Texas, is a 10-year-old Student Council President. His dream is to be a defense lawyer. He has a mature taste for classical music by playing the piano and admiring Beethoven and Bach.

“Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader” is hosted by Foxworthy and produced by United Artists Media Group. Executive producers are Barry Poznick and Mark Burnett. It is FOX’s highest-rated series premiere.
