TOP 9 IN­NO­VA­TORS DO BAT­TLE FOR R1-MIL­LION ON ‘HANG­MAN’

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - TV SCHEDULES & STARS -

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.
