BLAZE Kenya unveils the 12 contestants and judges who will be taking part in its reality show, BLAZE BYOB TV show, set to premiere on Monday 6th February 2017.
The contestants were selected from Nairobi, Rift Valley, Central, Western and Coast regions, and include:

BLAZE BYOB TV show will be on air for a period of eight weeks, during which the contestants will be evaluated on their ability to perform outstandingly well across a series of tasks that will assess their business skills, navigating carefully crafted challenges that simulate real-life situations, and working with mentors and established brands to earn the judges’ and audience’s favour.
Contestants will be eliminated each week, with the overall winner bagging a grand prize of KES 5 million that includes KES 3 million in start-up capital and the remainder in the form of mentorship, financial advice and business support from Safaricom and various partners. However no contestant will go home empty-handed, with each receiving a consolation prize that will go towards supporting their businesses upon elimination.
Contestants will be guided and evaluated by a panel of three judges selected from media and entrepreneurship backgrounds.

“The selection of the judges was not easy either. These three judges represent what we feel Kenyan youth can relate to: burning passion for business, a desire to tread the unconventional path and a hunger for success. With Caroline, Trushar and King Kaka we’re presenting to contestants and the audience three Kenyans who are excelling in their fields, who know what it takes to succeed and who are willing to share what they’ve learned on their journeys to where they are now,” said Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore during the launch of the TV show.
Since its launch in May 2016, BLAZE has signed up close to 900,000 subscribers, with over 44,000 youth attending the mentorship summits in Eldoret, Thika, Nakuru, Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu. Of these, 778 young men and women auditioned for the TV show, going through an intensive five-stage audition process that resulted in the selection of the final 12.
The BLAZE BYOB TV show will air on KTN between 8.00pm and 9.00pm every Monday, beginning 6th February 2017 and closing with a live grand finale on Monday 27th March 2017.
