Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? is a popular game show that tests the intelligence of adults by asking them questions from elementary school subjects. The show has been re-imagined for 2019 by Nickelodeon and now features wrestler and actor John Cena as the host. Alongside Cena, the show also features a panel of fifth-graders who help the contestants with the questions.

The contestants on the show are all adults who are trying to win a cash prize by answering questions from a range of elementary school subjects like history, geography, science, and math. The catch is that the questions are not just any ordinary questions—they are all taken directly from the textbooks of real fifth-grade classes. The contestants are given multiple-choice answers to choose from, and they can also use their childhood "classmates" (the panel of fifth-graders) to help them answer the question.

The panel of fifth-graders consists of four students—Cooper Stutler, Jamir Vega, Colin Heintz, and one rotating student guest. These kids are all actual fifth-graders who have been chosen to be part of the show. They are not actors, and they all attend different schools in the Los Angeles area. They are all incredibly smart and articulate, and they have a lot of fun bantering with John Cena and with the contestants.

One of the reasons that the show is so popular is that it is incredibly relatable. Everyone remembers their elementary school days, and everyone remembers the feeling of being stumped by a question that seemed easy at the time. The show is a great way to test your knowledge and to feel like a kid again.

Another reason that the show is so popular is John Cena. The wrestler-turned-actor is a great host, and he injects a lot of fun and energy into the show. He has a great rapport with the fifth-graders, and he is always cracking jokes and keeping the contestants at ease. He is also really good at playing up the suspense and drama of the show, which makes for great TV.

The format of the show is also a big part of its appeal. There are several rounds of questions, and each round gets progressively harder. In the first round, the contestants can choose from questions worth $1,000, $2,000, or $3,000. If they get the question right, they move on to the next round. If they get it wrong, they have to say whether or not they think one of the fifth-graders knows the answer. If the fifth-grader gets it right, the contestant gets to move on anyway.

The second and third rounds work the same way, except the questions are worth more money and the stakes are higher. In the final round, the contestants have to answer one last question worth $500,000. If they get it right, they win the money. If they get it wrong, they lose everything.

Overall, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? (2019) is a fun and engaging show that puts adults to the test. With its relatable subject matter, talented fifth-grade panel, and charismatic host, the show is a hit with audiences of all ages. Whether you're a parent watching with your kids or just someone who wants to test your own knowledge, this show is definitely one to check out.
