What is Power Couple?
Power Couple is an exciting new prime time reality show. It is for adventurous couples who are confident in themselves and believe that their relationship and knowledge of each other’s strengths and weaknesses can turn into a lot of money. In this game, the winning couple’s relationship, and how much they’re willing to bet on it, determines the size of the prize. In the show, 8 couples will live together in a luxurious villa in Camps Bay, and will partake in some tough and spectacular challenges.
What will the challenges entail?
Before each challenge you will have to bet up to R50 000 on how well you think your partner will do in the challenge. There will be a Guys’ Challenge, a Girls’ Challenge, and one Couples’ Challenge each week. At the end of each week, the couple with the least amount of money in the kitty, along with the losing couple from the Couples’ Challenge, will be up for elimination. It is up to the other couples in the house to vote for which couple they want to stay, and who they want to send home.
