MTV Roadies is back with a new ripping format in its X-series. ‘No Vote Outs, Only Performance can get you to Win’. This is the mantra of this new season of MTV Hero Roadies X1. India’s top rated youth reality series dons a brand new avatar that salutes those who believe the only thing its worth fighting for is “respect”. And, this season 7 boys and 7 girls fight it out on equal grounds in an ultimate ride to win respect.
Aditya Swamy, EVP and Business Head, MTV India explains, “India's longest running reality show is back with a brand new format, a format that reflects the mood of young India. On one hand, there is the demand for equal rights, on the other the ambition to succeed but only by playing fair. The theme of this season - RIDE FOR RESPECT gives 7 boys and 7 girls an equal chance. And NO VOTE OUTS. All that matters is PERFORMANCE.”
Life discriminates amongst men and women on several counts. But in Roadies, a boy and a girl are treated as equals and are given equal chance to perform. Only merit is the currency to decide the winner in Roadies. In fact, girls have won the Roadies winner title thrice in last ten years. This year, Roadies is auditioning for equal number of boys and girls who would rough it up on even grounds to be the last Roadie standing. This season champions the youth sentiment that being brave and standing against odds is better than being the bully. The format will reward performance over petty politics. This year, there will be no vote outs, no shortcuts and no alliances. The winner will be decided purely on basis of merit in performance on tasks. This twist in the format reflects the state of mind of young India. Confident, ambitious and street smart.
Starting 17 November, the hunt for the Roadie of the year will kick off through a grueling four-city audition. The epitome of sportsman spirit - Rannvijay, and the mentor of the format- Raghu, will handpick 7 boys and 7 girls across the 4 cities. The show will give an equal chance to both the genders to prove their merit and win the title of Roadies. The gates open for auditions on 17 Nov, 2013- first stop being Delhi, followed by Chandigarh, Pune and Ahmedabad. For details log on to mtvindia.com/roadies
Speaking about the new season, Rannvijay the host of the show and first ever winner of MTV Roadies says, “In the last 10 years, I have seen numerous contestants come to the show with a game plan in mind. Many a times, contestants have gone far on the show on the basis of their mind games and strategy, rather than performance. But now all that is a thing of the past. For the first time on Roadies, a winner will be selected only on his performance in every task. It definitely is going to be one exciting journey.”
Raghu Ram, the returning judge and mentor of MTVRoadies, said, “The last 10 years has seen Roadies enjoy the top position when it comes to youth based reality shows. With the onset of Season XI of Roadies we want to turn the concept around. This time the battle is solely for Respect. The eliminations will also be purely performance based while there will be no place for politics. Like they say- let the best man win!”
