Zeng amazed the audience with his fire-quick answers on the University Challenge quiz show.

His immense knowledge of geography went viral after a map of India without borders was shown to them, and they had to answer which was the capital of the city that the pin located. Zeng only took a few seconds to press the buzzer and answer responsively such as "Uh, Chennai and Tamil Nadu," "That one is Lucknow and Uttar Pradesh," "Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh.", "Kolkata, West Bengal." and gave other locations without fail. Needless to say, his geography skills was beyond impressive

Maximilian Zeng is a 22-year-old Singaporean and a third-year student in Chemistry. He belongs to the Imperial College Team along with Sheriff, May, and Jackson.

In an interview, Zeng shared that he was received a map when he was three years old and loved learning locations. When he was six years old, he knew all the capital and cities.

He also clarified that he does not study geography at the university but he was a former student of Hwa Chong Institution. The institution applies the Singapore education system, in which an immense role memorization is practiced and it became beneficial for him.

Zeng's Team defeated the King's London Imperial (Sathyanath, Bedouin, Rashid, and Beard) with a score of 235-50 and will proceed into the quarterfinals.

The University Challenge is a British television quiz show that first aired in 1962 on ITV. This 2022 is the 51st series of the University Challenge that began on July 12, 2021. Last year, the University of Warwick won the 50th series in April.

On the other hand, Maximilian Zeng was praised as a human Google map due to his capability to locate capital state and its city without borders. One commentator on YouTube even said," You can drop Zeng in the middle of the Pacific. He'll still know the way home".

In addition, another individual said, "Max "The Human Atlas" Zeng strikes again! Can't wait until they either win or get knocked out and someone makes a hyper cut of every Geography question Zeng answers."
