CHILD GENIUS DEBATE
TWELVE-YEAR-OLD Rahul from London has been crowned the winner of Channel 4’s Child Genius, although many people are upset at the way his father behaved at the final.
It was Rahul who won the trophy but, minutes after winning, his father, Minesh, appeared to grab the trophy himself and raise it above his head. Minesh was also caught on camera laughing and smiling when Rahul’s competitor, Ronan, answered a question incorrectly.
Social media users were unhappy with Minesh’s behaviour, claiming that he was overstepping the mark and being a ‘pushy parent’. Throughout the competition, Minesh showed his competitive streak by telling his son to see the other contestants as competitors instead of friends.
