Roadies make Lake City splash

- Post Report, Kathmandu

Following auditions in Butwal and Chitwan, the Himalaya Roadies rumbled into Pokhara for its third of five nationwide auditions. Like previous auditions, they will pick 20 contestants to move in the show, the Pokhara episode saw hundreds of aspirants put to task for a general audition before 12 contestants were selected for an interview with the show’s three judges—Deeya Maskey, Raymon Das Shrestha and Ashish Rana (Laure). Two Pokharelis—Anish Baniya and Pirbir Ghale—were in the end selected to continue.


MTV Roadies, of which Himalaya Roadies is a spin off, has proven to be one of the biggest reality shows in South Asia, where a group of contestants travel to different destinations and participate in various tasks that challenge their physical and mental strength. During the course of the journey, there are vote outs, vote ins, eliminations and game changing twists. Eventually, the contestant who manages to survive vote outs and succeeds in the final task is chosen as the winner.


Envisioned in the same format, Himalaya Roadies-Wild Wild West will  next travel to Dharan and Kathmandu for its auditions.
This year, the show will also see the return of last year’s finalists Saman Shrestha and Animesh Shahi as hosts.
