    Francis is currently a pre-med student at Southern Methodist University. He hails from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was awarded the Presidential Scholarship to SMU, the University’s highest honor. Francis doesn’t see the drastic religious and political differences within his team as a handicap, but loves engaging in debates with his teammates, knowing that their friendship will never be compromised by their beliefs. Francis is excited to see the world and live life to its fullest by being on “Treasure Hunters” and is ready for the challenge.

    Sam met his teammates in his organic chemistry lab, Charles being his T.A., and Francis a classmate. Sam, a student at Southern Methodist University, is working towards his B.S. in biology, a B.A. in chemistry, and a B.S. in economics with finance. Sam says that the Geniuses may be their own worst enemy – their biggest weakness being their egos. But Sam credits their intelligence and work ethic as the qualities that will help their team to succeed. Sam's main incentive for winning “Treasure Hunters” is that he wants to establish a college fund for his best friend's newborn son. Sam wishes one day to become a doctor and open a free geriatric clinic.

    Charles currently attends Southern Methodist University on a full scholarship. Charles is a teaching assistant in the organic chemistry lab, which is where he met his two teammates. Charles is currently a senior and is studying electrical engineering, biology, physics, and math. In high school he had near-perfect SAT scores and his dream is to conduct stem cell research in his own lab. Originally from Paris, Texas, Charles is proud of his intelligence and knows that the Geniuses, three guys each with multiple majors, should be able to successfully solve almost any puzzle.

    Frances scares me. Can't imagine him being my doctor...maybe the show will change my opinion.

    Sam seems like a sweet kid with good intentions.

    Not to impressed with Charles. Just because you are smart, sweetie, doesn't mean you are a shoe in at the puzzles. Somehow I think this one will get the eye opening of a lifetime on this show.

    Sam: I smell bacon!
    Charles: I smell uber-Geek!

    Bunch of egomaniacs, methinks. Those are the ones that I love to see crash and burn.
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    Me too, waywyrd. I don't think I'll be rooting for these Texans.
    Getting lost will help you find yourself.

    Isn't Francis awfully young to be wearing Elvis sideburns? I can easily see ego being a problem for them, but their age range could be as well.

    I go to school with these three (or used to anyways). I can't say much about Sam since I've only seen him around campus but the other two Francis and Charles are pretty smart. But Charles seems too books smarts and doesn't have enough streets smarts. Frances has both but is extemely annoying and inappropriate 95% of the time.

    Ergo his casting on a Reality show, I guess.

    I'm not liking any of these three at all.

    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.
