Biography of Richard Rosner

Early Life and Education

Richard Rosner, an American actor and television scriptwriter, was born on May 2, 1960, in Boulder, Colorado. He attended the University of Colorado in his hometown and began appearing in commercials and dance performances while still a student. With his pleasant appearance and developed muscles, Rosner became a frequent presence in popular dance videos, both within and outside the university. During his college years, he also worked as a promotional model for the magazine 'Variety'.

Move to New York and Unexpected Fame

After graduating from college, Rosner moved to New York, where he worked for the popular entertainment channel Musical Television, better known as MTV. However, fame was never a dream for Rosner, and it came to him almost by chance. In 1985, driven by his curiosity, he participated in Ron Hoeflin's Mega Test and scored second among 4,000 participants. In 1990, when scientists became interested in him, Rosner wrote the Titan Test, with Hoeflin's assistance, and scored 47 out of 48 points, one of the highest results in the test's long history.

Work and Career

For a period of time, Richard Rosner served as an editor for the Mega Society, an organization comprising individuals with significantly higher-than-average IQs. Despite being one of the smartest people on the planet, Rosner did not always pursue "suitable" jobs. Starting in 1987, he wrote scripts for several television shows while also continuing to appear in commercials. According to his own words, he worked as a stripper at a night club, a roller-skating waiter, and a model for art schools. Some of his notable works include commercials for 'Domino's Pizza' and 'Burger King'. Rosner gained particular recognition after his participation in the popular show 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire'. Despite confidently progressing through the questions, he stumbled on a relatively simple question about state capitals. After his defeat, he filed a lawsuit for "insufficient information in the question," but unfortunately, his claim was not upheld by the court.

Current Work

Today, Rosner works as a scriptwriter for television, writing scripts for shows such as 'The Man Show', 'Crank Yankers', and 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'.
