Arnav Krishna from "Child Genius" is one of the contestants featured in Season 2 of the Lifetime reality competition series. He is nine years old and lives in Dobbs Ferry, New York. His mother is Seema Krishna, Marketing Executive, while his father is Vijay Krishna, Financial Services Executive. His favorite subjects are math and reading.

With an eye to becoming an architect and a mathematician when he is older, Arnav Krishna is off to a good start with successive rankings in national math competitions. Receiving a Singapore based curriculum keeps Arnav challenged, along with programs through Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth and Mensa. Always inquisitive with a researcher instinct, Arnav loves to read from his massive book collection and memorize all sorts of facts. In addition to his academic achievements, Arnav shines at tennis, playing the piano, swimming and chess.

Arnav may have a hand up due to his keen memorization abilities, which will serve him well in a competition setting. On top of that, he may be the best at math out of all the contestants.
