Team members include Thiravong, Davansh Patel, Jason Zheng and David Wanner. Katie Henson and Kyce Jaradat competed as alternates and Katie Queller-Zilis coaches the team. During the competition students answered 38 questions on an individual test and 10 more during the written group portion. Thiravong placed in the top eight on the written test advancing to the Count Down Round. During the final round contestants are given a buzzer and must buzz in similar to a game show during the verbal competition.
