  • MTV India to launch a new speed dating show ‘Elovator Pitch’

India’s one of the popular youth focused channel, MTV, is all set to launch a new speed dating show titled ‘Elovator Pitch.’

The show produced by BBC worldwide will be hosted by Cyrus Sahukar and VJ Gaelyn Mendonca and will be on air from October 12, 2018.

The concept of the show is quite unique, where 10 boys will have 30 seconds impress a girl in the elevator which will go up to 10 floors. The two hosts will have a close eye on the elevator ride. At the end of it, the girl will shortlist three boys and choose to go on a date with one of them. The process is the same when a boy has to choose from 10 girls.

Talking about the show, Cyrus said, "My relationship with MTV has been for more than a decade now, it feels like family to me. 'Elovator Pitch' is a very quirky, fresh and fun concept that unlike many other shows is irreverent and causal. I'm looking forward to hosting the show and witnessing some great 'pitches' by the boys."

Sharing her thoughts, VJ Gaelyn, said, "From hosting 'Roadies', which has an intense concept to now hosting 'Elovator Pitch' is a completely different experience. It promises to be a perfect combination of drama and comedy (something that I enjoy the most) and that's why I was so excited to take this up."

The promo of the new show was recently shot in Mumbai, where boys used some catchy pickup lines to describe themselves and impress a girl.
