Is That A Fact?

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 8 APRIL -

Sea­son 1 SABC3 (*193) 16:00 Re­al­ity

Co­me­dian Chris For­rest takes the reigns as host of 13-episode lo­cal celeb talkand gameshow Is That A Fact? (2017-cur­rent). His job is to roast the four celebs in each episode and find out if their “sto­ries” are fact or fic­tion made up by writ­ers. Help­ing make Chris’s job eas­ier is the stu­dio au­di­ence and tv­plus was on set dur­ing film­ing…


The celebs start with 100 points. If they get away with their fib (about any­thing from where they grew up to a hid­den tal­ent – and only PG-rated top­ics), they get 10 points. If they get caught out in their lie, 10 points are docked from their score. And host Chris can throw them a bonus point or two for things like singing, jokes and danc­ing on ta­bles. The celeb with the most points at the end of the episode is crowned cham­piom.


Episodes are bro­ken into four seg­ments and at the end of each, the celeb re­veals if their story was fact or fic­tion by press­ing a green (yes) or red (no) but­ton. The sec­tions are split in to Sto­ry­telling, Six De­grees Of Sep­a­ra­tion, Photo Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and Cross-Ex­am­i­na­tion.


Guests on the show in­clude en­ter­tain­ment pre­sen­ter Roxy Burger, ac­tress Brid­get Pike (Carol on med­i­cal drama se­ries Ja­cob’s Cross, 2007-2012), voiceover star Si­nazo Yolwa from talk­show The Real Goboza (2007-cur­rent) plus co­me­di­ans like Kurt Schoonraad and Rob Van Vu­uren. Also take a peek at the au­di­ence… you may spot another celeb or two in the seats.
