Binyamin Stivi from "Child Genius" is one of the contestants featured in the Lifetime reality competition series. He is eleven years old and lives in Manhattan Beach, California. His mother is Svetlana Stivi, Medical Doctor, while his father is Alon Stivi, CEO of Direct Measures International.

Binyamin Stivi is not only a genius, but has an outgoing and fun nature that makes him the comedian of his class. His parents love his energy and do not speak to him like a child — they will discuss aerodynamics theory with him or even dealing with a sick patient at work. Each year, since a very young age, Binyamin has been invited to join the John Hopkins Center for Talented Youth. He has also won several robotics and musical competitions. Binyamin focuses his energy within science, his favorite subject. He hopes to one day win a Nobel Peace prize in science.

Binyamin's knowledge resides within science, including chemistry, biology and robotics. He also enjoys programming and playing the piano. He is excited about the fame that "Child Genius" will bring, which gives him an extra push to succeed.
