The Geniuses were the first team to enter the final cavern and were the first to decypher the 5 letter word, “fskey”, to unlock their cryptex. Unlocking their cryptex revealed an interesting little spinning mechanism engraved with scripts matching those of stone tablets set in the ground. The Geniuses placed their spinning mechanism on the matching table, spun it and it pointed to the star symbol. They found the corresponding Star symbol on the wall and in a burst of flame and smoke the chamber door opened revealing a giant stack of gold coins.
The Geniuses are the official winners of the first season of Treasure Hunters.
The total prize money taken home by the winning team of Treasure Hunters: $3million
Divided between the 3 members of Team Geniuses, each member takes home a cool $1million. Not a bad prize at all.
