Speaking in an interview with JoyNews, one of the contestants, Franklyn Forson, said the decision by their NSMQ coordinator to add a Form 1 boy to the team did not make them happy.
Franklyn, however, confessed that with the passage of time, their perception of Stephen changed as they came to realise that his addition was going to improve the team.
"As time went on, I saw that the guy was very good, and he would help us, so we decided to work hand in hand with him.
He was doing very well in the riddle and in other parts, so I think the teachers did well."
