South Africa show gives entrepreneurs three days to make money.
South Africa’s newest reality TV show, Sanlam Money Game, features three entrepreneurs attempting to make as much money as possible in three days. In a scenario that sounds very similar to NBC’s Lost, “They’re given R30 000 and are placed in a remote location with only the clothes on their backs, their ID, driver’s license and a watch,” according to News24. At the end of the three days, the contestant with the most cash wins. They can only use the cash they’re given “for transport, phone calls, hotels, food and as seed money for deals.” The show airs Thursdays from now until Oct. 24, with a new group featured each week.
