Meet the eight-year-old Australian ‘Einstein’ who’s smarter than 99% of the population

While most eight-year-olds are busy reciting their times-tables, little Evan Luc-Tran has bigger things on his mind.

Like rattling off every capital city in the world without prompt — that’s 197 cities — or naming every Australian prime minister and American president by rote.

Of course, he also can tell you the years they were in office.

Then there’s his ability to recite the mathematical constant pi, an irrational number with a never-ending decimal representation, to 200 decimal points.

It’s this incredible photographic memory and an IQ in the top one per cent of the population that got this pint-sized genius his appearance on Channel 7’s hit new show, Little Big Shots.

“I knew there was something special about him when he was about two,” said his mother Grace Luc, 38, of Canada Bay, in Sydney’s inner west.

“I was cooking in the kitchen and he kept saying, ‘Mum, Mum, our car,’ and pointing at the fridge.

“So I turned around to see what he was talking about and he’d arranged the fridge numbers to spell out our car’s numberplate.”

The kids’ talent show hosted by Shane Jacobson debuted last Sunday with an astounding 1.67 million viewers, smashing its competition The Block (1.15 million) and The Project (327,000).

Created by Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey, the drawcard of the Little Big Shots format is that children are not judged or ranked for their abilities.

Instead, every kid on the show is celebrated for their unique and incredible talent.

This Sunday will see Mensa member Luc-Tran joined by fellow child prodigies Thomas Petrie, a seven-year-old champion whip-cracker from Queensland and international viral sensation Xiong Fei, 10, a Chinese Latin dancer.

Little Big Shots airs Sunday, 7pm, on Seven.
