C J de Mooi
President of the English Chess Federation, actor, professional quizzer and panellist, and distinguished supporter of Humanism
CJ lives in Wales, is a vegetarian and supporter of charities concentrating on human (especially gay) rights, homelessness and HIV. He is a huge snooker fan and attend almost as many matches as he does quizzes but his real passion has always been the stage and he’s pursuing his dream of appearing in a West End musical.
He was a model in Germany and the Netherlands for 6 years but is best known as one of the resident quiz experts on the long running BBC show Eggheads. After having been a keen chess player for many years, he is now President of the English Chess Federation and keeps his body fit (kneading it with the quizzing and chess!) by running marathons and has competed in the London event in 2009 and 2010 for Amnesty International.
