Primal Media are currently looking for pairs to take part in a brand new TV game show set on the beach this summer and to be in with a chance of winning a big cash prize.

All you need to do to win is survive some general knowledge questions and everything mother nature throws at you!

How do you win the money? One contestant swims out in the ocean, whilst their team mate stays on dry land. At each pontoon they reach there will be a question and two marked treasure chests. With help from your team mate - get the answer right and you open the box to a wad of cash, but get it wrong and you pick up a bag of pebbles.

The contestant can choose to carry on to win more money or swim back to the shore in an attempt to take home the cash they have won.

Who can apply?

  • Applicants must be 18 or over.
  • Pairs only e.g. family, friends, couples, work colleagues.
  • One team member must be able to swim.
  • Must be available throughout September 2017 and have a valid passport for travel around Europe.

Interested applicants should send their NAME, AGE and CONTACT TELEPHONE NUMBER to and someone will be in touch. You will then receive an application form.

Deadline for applications is Friday 1st September but please do not wait until the deadline - the casting team will be holding Skype auditions throughout August, so choose your team mate and get the form in quick. Good luck!


Win a cash prize with your friends and family from the comfort of your own home!

  • Do you live in a household of 2 or more people?
  • Are you all up for a challenge and a good laugh?
  • Fancy competing in a series of fun tasks together to win some cash without even having to leave your own house?

Then we want to hear from you!

To register your interest in this exciting new show and get an application form, please get in touch with the team ASAP, with your address, contact number and a bit of info about you and your household. Applications close 25th August.
