‘The Challenge’ is back
Season five of Ghana’s first educational reality TV show, The Challenge premiered yesterday on TV3 and GHOne Entertainment TV.
If the premiere is anything to go by then viewers are in for another exciting season of the reality show, an initiative of the British Council.
According to George Quaye, Head of Media/Communications and Senior Producer of Charterhouse and GhOne, producers The Challenge, the series will feature crossover episodes connecting with life’s basic daily encounters without losing its ideal educational, informative and challenging form.
‘Bright, young and ambitious Ghanaian university graduates who will take up this season’s challenge will encounter the best of extreme emotions; elation and despair.
‘Elation from the many task reward adventures that the producers and their partners have laid out to reward successful candidates and of course the despair that comes with eviction’, he said.
Headline sponsored by telecoms giant, tiGO, the show has seen over 10 Ghanaian University graduates take up various courses at the University of Westminster, Thames Valley and London Metropolitan all in London, as well as the Robert Gordon University in the oil hub of Europe, Aberdeen, Scotland.
This season, which happens to be the fifth and coincides with the 70th anniversary of the British Council, is set to be the biggest with over £100,000 in scholarships from three universities in the UK; Northampton University, University of Salford in Manchester and the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Mr Quaye said the final 15 candidates who will be selected for the competition will each get a laptop from IPMC, loaded with data from tiGO, mobile phones from tiGO, souvenirs from other sponsors and for the very first time, a whopping £5000 cash to be invested with Beige Capital for the overall winner.
The Challenge is produced by GHOne with support from IPMC, Beige Capital, VitaMilk, the University of Salford, Northampton and the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland. It is a British Council Ghana Initiative and proudly sponsored by tiGO.
