M-Net brings you Power Couple SA

Posted by radio On January - 28 - 2015

M-Net  is bringing TV fans yet another first! In 2015, viewers will fall in love with a brand-new format, Power Couple.

 

M-Net 101 will be the first English-language channel in the world to produce Power Couple – already a  ratings success story in Israel and Portugal, and currently in production in Brazil.

“Power Couple is a revolutionary concept that combines all the elements needed for compelling television,” says Victor Eckard, M-Net’s Director for M-Net 101 and M-Net Edge. “There will be romance, drama, action, adventure and loads of suspense in this unique feel-good series with traces of  Fear Factor, Big Brother and  game show-type challenges which could yield massive cash rewards for the contestants. It’s all very exciting and we’re thrilled to lead the international pack again by bringing our viewers a fresh format that we believe will soon take the world by storm.”

 

Power Couple will test the relationships of eight couples, who will move into a luxurious villa somewhere in Cape Town. These couples will compete at thrilling, nerve-wracking challenges, during which they have to illustrate how much they know, trust or love their partners. Based on the outcome of these tasks, two couples will be up for elimination each week and the others will decide whom they would like to keep in the game.

 

These tough, spectacular challenges – which will sometimes include high-adrenaline action adventures – will allow the couples to accumulate thousands of Rands by betting on whether their loved one will be able to complete a task, without  knowing how much their partner has invested in their ability to succeed. If they get it right, the money will be added to their kitty – but if the partner fails, the money will be subtracted from the amount they carry through to the end of the show.

 

“It could be far more than a million rand,” says Eckard. “But also take note, becoming SA’s first Power Couple will be about more than being brave and courageous in the challenges. You’ll have to use your EQ and IQ to ensure that the other couples don’t get rid of you, while strategising to stay ahead of the others at all times.”

 

If you want to become South Africa’s first Power Couple, do take note that auditions will start soon. The audition dates and venues are as follows:

 

14 February – The Bay Hotel, Camps Bay, Cape Town

18 February – Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban

28 February – Indaba Hotel, Johannesburg

 

But who is eligible to enter and what will the producers be looking for?

 

“You have to be older than 21 and a South African citizen, willing to do crazy and wild things for love,” says Handrie Basson from Afrokaans, who’re producing the show for M-Net 101. “We’ll be looking for diverse, interesting and outgoing people who believe that they’re a winning pair – whether they’ve been married for yonks or at the very start of a relationship.”
