DFCC Bank’s award-winning MindStar launches season 2

DFCC MindStar, the award-winning reality TV quiz show produced by DFCC bank, this week announced the launch of the show’s second season recently.

Like the previous season, the eligibility to appear on the show will depend on the performance of the applicants at the initial aptitude tests, which was held in early January, DFCC officials said.
MindStar revolves around contestants answering a series of challenging yet interesting questions and winning incremental sums of money for their efforts. While this process is expected to entertain audiences it will also increase their exposure to new and interesting information.

The show, conceptualized by DFCC Bank, began its first season on the Independent Television Network in May 2010, and quickly built up a large following consisting of viewers across the island. The officials told reporters that this show’s second season will continue to be presented by brand ambassador Ravindra Randeniya and will run for a period of 35 weeks, while featuring 225 contestants.

A new feature of the show in this new season will be five special school shows in which 45 students will be selected from national schools through an eligibility test held with approval of the Ministry of Education.

The prize money up for grabs for the winning school is Rs. 1 million. The show’s first season produced four millionaires while the show saw 76 winners in total for the entire season, winning a total of Rs.15 million in prize money. MindStar’s first season also featured 180 contestants.
