The Intellectual Gene Simmons

gene_simmonsThis is the Gene Simmons you probably know from KISS fame.  On Thursday night Gene Simmons appeared on Fox’s Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader.  It was a celebrity episode.  People watch celebrity episodes because they’re fun.  Most celebrities are of course morons, and they even dumb down the questions.  SNL made a whole series of Celebrity Jeopardy spoofs.  Here’s the thing though: Simmons is brilliant.

I learned watching the show that Simmons’ family immigrated from Israel when he was 8.  He speaks 4 languages (is learning 2 more – Japanese and Mandiran Chinese) and has a degree in Theology.  Before rocking and rolling all night (and partying everyday) he taught the 6th grade!  He was a 6th grade teacher, ergo must be smarter than a 5th grader.

The broadcast date was November 6th.  Find it on Fox.com, find it on Hulu, just watch it.  I won’t spoil it, but he gets farther than any previous celebrity on the show.
