What would you do with 10 million bucks?

2008-05-15 14:20
Everyone has their own wish list and now M-Net are putting those dreams just a little closer within the reach of a few big winners. Power of 10 is a new game show that will be screened on the pay-television channel in August 2008. It seems all you need to do to win 10 million bucks is get 10 out of 10.

How do I get 10 out of 10?

Power of 10 is built on people’s perceptions about the world they live in. A leading market research company will poll thousands of people around the country with a host of questions on a variety of subject matter. The contestants on the show will then have to accurately predict what percentage of South Africans answered the question in a specific way. Some examples of the more quirky questions are: What percentage of South Africans have used load shedding as an excuse for arriving late at work? What percentage of South African men prefer wearing boxer shorts to jocks? Or, what percentage of South Africans would prefer having a female president? How can I become a contestant ?

1. Call 086 2277 277 to get your entry form faxed to you. (Calls cost R1.44 per minute)

2. Go to the M-Net website (, where you can fill out the entry form on the website’s social network. If you haven’t registered for this service yet, it will only take you five minutes to upload your profile.

3. Press the OK button on your DStv remote control. Go to the Entertainment section where you’ll find the Power of 10 application. After answering 10 questions which will help M-Net gauge the habits of the typical M-Net viewer, you’ll be given an SMS code. You can then SMS the code to 33690 to enter the show. (SMS costs R1.50)

Entries open at 10:00 on Thursday, 15 May and close on Sunday 8 June at 23:59.
