Win $5,000 with Girls’ Day Out and TV2

Ten people will make history participating in New Zealand’s first live webcast reality event – TV2 GDO Big Sister with ZM and New Zealand Woman’s Weekly. The event takes place at Girls’ Day Out, New Zealand’s premier event for women – and it will be webcast live 24/3 , available keyword: big sister

This year’s TV2 GDO Big Sister reality event, brought to you by ZM and New Zealand Woman’s Weekly, is looking for ten great people to take part – with a chance to win $5000 cash, a Suzuki Scooter and other awesome prizes.

The event sees ten competitors – five guys and five girls – live in a specially built house. Visitors to Girls’ Day Out will be able to see into the house and watch contestants get to know each other as they meet the challenges we’ve set for them. Visitors to the show and people connected online then have the opportunity to vote to keep their favourite contestant in the house until only one remains – the winner gets the cash!

TV star and all round celeb Joe Cotton will be ‘Big Sister’ - guiding entrants through their paces with a series of secret and challenging competitions taking place in the TV2 GDO Big Sister house and on the Suzuki Fashion Stage – exposing our contestants to the live and Internet audience throughout the 3-days of Girls’ Day Out.

“We’re going to really test our brave people – and more importantly make sure they and the audience have a great time,” says Joe.

“Some of the challenges will be physical, others will test their artistic side, and others – well, you’ll just have to see.”

Last year’s winner, Annie Ng Chok encourages everyone to give it a go.

“It was an experience I’ll never forget. I had a wonderful time and didn’t want it to end. I made lots of friends and it’s been a real confidence boost for me,” says Annie. “It was the highlight of my year.”

As well as the top prize of $5000, there are plenty of other prizes from Girls’ Day Out supporters including Suzuki, Playstation2, Red Tickets, Stranger, and many more.
