The Rush reality TV show hits the screen


A high energy, adrenaline pumping and physically intense reality TV show, The Rush, a brainchild of Pop Central, is set to excite reality show enthusiasts. The show will hit the screen next month and run till December 2021.

The show is in two stages, the task stage and the chill out scenario in the residence. The live residence segment of the show reveals the human side of the contestants after the completion of their arduous challenges, which are done outdoors. The daily residence segment will be aired as a two-hour recap that will run from 7:00p.m to 9:00p.m daily and a rerun the next day from 11am to 1:00pm on Pop Central DSTV 189.

Sixteen contestants will be selected after an audition process to compete in groups for eight weeks and engage in 39 intensive physical and mental tasks.


The Rush is designed to be both exciting and intensive. The show will have dedicated task segments, contestants in-residence segment, diary room segment, host driver, and voice over to drive the story.

Contestants will vote to eliminate each other weekly, while the viewers will vote to keep their favourites in the game. They will also be able to earn immunity through various tasks during the weekdays.

Chief Executive Officer, Pop Central TV, Yinka Obebe, said the populaces are generally intrigued by intense sports because while most will not indulge in it, they are in the end captivated by the outcome.

“We have tapped into this to create The Rush reality show that revolves around adventurous content and healthy competition to entertain viewers and keep them at the edge of their seats.
