Need an unexpected bill paid ASAP? Prepared to do some crazy stuff to be rid of the debt that resulted from an ill-advised night out with the boys? Then apply NOW to be a contestant on Give Me that Bill Mzansi!

Set to make its debut on Mzansi Magic - DStv Channel 161 in January 2015, Give Me that Bill Mzansi is a game show – with a twist!

Each week the show’s hilarious hosts, Kenneth Nkosi and Tats Nkonzo, will select contestants and get them to play some crazy games. The prize? You could win money to pay towards your unpaid bill – or, for the final winner, a large portion of the total amount owing will be taken care of!

“The show is irreverent in many ways but at its heart is the very serious fact that we know that many of our viewers are frequently battling to pay their bills,” says Nkateko Mabaso, M-Net’s Director for Local Interest Channels.

“Give Me that Bill Mzansi is our way of making light of situations and giving people in need a helping hand.”

Auditions for Mzansi Magic viewers to be part of Give Me that Bill Mzansi are set to take place on November 1st and 2nd at Bassline in Newtown - 10 Henry Nxumalo St, Johannesburg. Door open at 08:00 to 17:00, arrive early to avoid long queues.

Importantly, potential participants in Give Me that Bill Mzansi are required to bring along bills that are linked to a wild, funny, bizarre, touching or even embarrassing story!

In this world of no ordinary bills, this could be an incredibly expensive telephone bill, the laundry bill for the red wine you tipped all over your mother-in-law’s designer frock, the gym classes you promised your spouse you would definitely cancel, expensive extras for that wedding party that broke the budget, the fake ticket you bought for a live concert or even the water damage that resulted when your neighbour asked you to help rescue his donkey from a ditch and you forgot to switch off your bath (don’t laugh – it has happened!). If you have a story attached to your bill, we want to hear it.

You will be eligible for selection and may qualify as a contestant if you satisfy three key criteria – a bill with a story, over 18 years of age and a vibrant personality. If you feel you qualify, go to www.mzansimagic.tv/GMTB, click on "entry form”, complete the form and bring it along to your audition. For those entrants who are unable to do this, forms will also be available at audition venues.
