Vivek Abraham 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 Bloomington, Illinois. His mother is Anupama Chandrappa, Project Management Consultant, while his father is Antony Abraham, IT Architect. His favorite subjects are astrophysics and science.

Mensa member Vivek Abraham maxed out on his IQ test: to say he is 160+ may significantly understate his potential. He is a whirlwind of random facts and practices the ancient Loci technique for memory enhancement. He enjoys quantifiable science and his most recent science fair project tracked the benefits of playing video games on children's brains. He enjoys solving real world problems utilizing calculus. He keeps a very busy schedule of extracurricular activities such as weekend classes at Northwestern University, robotic leagues, playing viola and practicing Taekwondo. Vivek desperately wants to be an astrophysicist when he grows up like his heroes Stephen Hawking and Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson.

There is no denying Vivek has the brains to win this competition. He skipped grades at school and is performing eleventh grade levels on standardized MAP tests. He is 1st Rank holder and gold medalist in the NUMATS talent search covering the entire Midwest two years in a row. He has a perfect score in his latest ACT exam. He has a bright future ahead!
