New Show: Million Rand Money Drop

Endemol South Africa and Mnet brings you a South African version of one of my favourite game shows on tv right now, Million Dollar Drop.

Following the announcement to the rest of Africa a few weeks ago of a Nigerian version of the game show format Million Dollar Money Drop on the AfricaMagic Entertainment channel run by M-Net, the pay TV provider just announced that a South African version entitled Million Rand Money Drop will be produced as well.

Endemol South Africa is the producer for both Million Dollar Money Drop Nigeria as well as Million Rand Money Drop for South Africa.

''The American version of this nail-biting game show, which was screened on M-Net earlier this year struck a cord with our audiences and we're excited to introduce the local version of this unique, high-stakes game show to our M-Net schedule," says Theo Erasmus, the channel director for general entertainment at M-Net in a press statement.
Contestants start with R1 million in notes and have to place the cash on any of three different answers to a trivia questions, after which trap doors below the "answers" open under the incorrect options and contestants losing the money they perhaps have placed on those answers.

Endemol South Africa will be holding auditions in Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth from the end of the month and in November for contestants who want to enter Million Rand Money Drop.
