TOP 9 INNOVATORS DO BATTLE FOR R1-MILLION ON ‘HANGMAN’
ZITHANDE Mbala – inventor of iWipe, a revolutionary new smart toilet paper – has become the first finalist to leave Cell C’s reality show Hangman. The remaining nine contestants will do battle for R1-million on the show, hosted by Maps Maponyane and broadcast on e.tv tomorrow at 11.50am. The Top 9 have to win the approval of the “Backers” (judges), captains of industry and investment, who are celebrity economist Iraj Abedian; self-made billionaire Quinton van der Burgh, chief executive of Business Leadership South Africa, Bonang Mohale and businesswoman and entrepreneur Connie Mashaba.
With Hangman, viewers can enjoy 24/7 entertainment via a Cell C Reality App where they can truly immerse themselves in the show. They can play “The Exchange” and win great prizes; get to know the “Backers” and watch sneak peek behind-the-scenes footage. Viewers can also get involved in the show itself – if their service matches a contestant’s need, they stand a chance to be in front of cameras. All customers who download the Cell C Reality App automatically receive 100 000 points which they can use to participate in the ‘The Exchange’. Points are allocated to play the game. Customers win a variety of prizes by playing the game, including a car, scooter, smartphones, data, cash and vouchers. The innovator who succeeds in garnering the support of the “Backers”, while rallying viewer/”investor” sentiment, could walk away with a R1-million cash prize.
Hangman airs on e.tv tomorrow with a repeat on Saturdays at 1pm.
IN THE MIX: ‘The Hangman’ finalists, from left to right, are Sello Paul Malinga, Sean T Armstrong, Lebohang Motsoeneng, Rupert Taljaard, Claire Reid, Zithande Mbala, Chelsea Anne Hornby, Dean Fegen, Bonex Mwakikunga and Christo Rossouw. Mbala was voted out this week
