New spelling bee reality TV show for M-Net

2016-10-03 15:51

Johannesburg - Great news for fans of reality TV! M-Net (DStv 101) is upping their reality content with the family-friendly game show called Spellbound, based on the concept of a spelling bee, and is looking for word whizzes who could become the country’s English spelling and grammar champions.

Spellbound will test contestants’ word skills in a fun and interactive way and will include super spellers from different age groups. There will be a round for primary school learners between the ages of 10 and 13, a round for high school learners between the ages of 14 and 18, and one for adults of all ages, as long as they’re over 18 and are South African citizens or permanent residents. The learners must currently be attending school in South Africa and must have the permission of their parents or legal guardians to take part in the show.

Apart from the  thrill that comes from knowing that you’re the country’s number one letter-master in your age group, winners – and their schools – will walk away with cash prizes.

Entries for Spellbound have opened on M-Net’s official website and will close on Monday, 31 October at 23:59. To be invited to show off your superlative English spelling and grammar skills on the Spellbound set, the first step is to complete the questionnaire and online test. Click here

Spellbound is produced for M-Net by Homebrew Films and will be screened on M-Net on Sundays at 17:00 from 20 November 2016.
