Eden Wilson from "Child Genius" is one of the contestants featured in the Lifetime reality competition series. She is eight years old and lives in Oklahoma. Her mother is Eva Wilson, Author, Blogger, and Creative Director, and her father is Don Wilson, IT Project Manager.

Eden Wilson has many favorite subjects and they usually change each year. This year she is fascinated with the Roman culture. Last year, it was the Amish culture and spiders. Eden is currently being homeschooled because she was too advanced for her grade and even the next grade up. To prevent her from going to school with kids five years older, her mother decided to home school her. Eden is such a perfectionist in her studies that she wont accept anything less than 100% on her tests and papers. Her mother jokes about Eden's perfectionism in that whenever it comes to grading her tests, the whole family braces itself, waiting for the fallout if she misses a single point.

For Eden second place isn't winning, and she isn't happy unless she wins. Eden has an edge due to the fact that she has knowledge in multiple areas because of her shifting interests. 

Her interests include reading and studying history.
