Corey Fleischer from "The Big Brain Theory: Pure Genius" is one of the contestants on the Discovery Channel reality competition series. He is a senior mechanical engineer for Lockheed Martin. He is from Abingdon, Maryland, and has an IQ of 120. He earned a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering.

Fueled by caffeine and a hardcore competitive attitude, Corey Fleischer remains an active skateboarder and snowboarder. In his spare time, he created the "Wii Kart," a fully functioning go-cart controlled by a Nintendo Wii remote. "My son gets a real kick out of it," he beams.

Although he loves to party and might be considered a little reckless (he destroyed a perfectly good car in a Redneck Demolition Derby), Corey was hired by Lockheed Martin directly out of college. One of the few 30-year-old senior engineers at Lockheed, he's known as "The Professor," because, as he says, "I'm constantly schooling it on mission critical design projects."

When asked how he'd celebrate winning, Corey replied, "I'm definitely getting a 'The Big Brain Theory: Pure Genius' tattoo."
