BLOW A MILLION ® is a pioneering digital reality competition series
– streaming 24/7 via its unique OTT entertainment platform.
Five contestants have one week to BLOW A MILLION ® living their 'bucket list' dreams.
If they succeed, one contestant, voted for by the viewing audience will win £1,000,000.
But there are rules. There are always rules...
"One day, your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching" - Morgan Freeman (‘Carter’) - The Bucket List - 2007
How would you like to experience the VIP world beyond the velvet rope, AND be given the opportunity to change your life, joining the richest 1% as a millionaire?
The viewing audience is looking for the next step in television. BLOW A MILLION ® is the modern American dream for the twenty-first century. BAM is hugely aspirational and created as THE show for 99% of us that want to be more than just voyeurs. Unlike all other reality competition game shows, ANYONE can enter, play, and win regardless of ability, appearance, education, background, or talent.
We offer real people real money to live out their dreams, to experience the life of the 1%, making lifelong memories in front of an engaged global audience
The format for BLOW A MILLION ® is geared for international franchising and global specials.
BAM is the future of television. Viewers can watch, enter, vote, and interact 24/7 on the live stream at www.blowamillion.com and via the App across all devices.
As one of five new weekly contestants, all you must do is collectively spend EXACTLY £1 million (not a penny more, not a penny less) between you, having the time of your lives together, living your wildest 'bucket list' dreams.
Four contestants will leave with nothing more than incredible experiences, friendships, and memories of the past seven days. Only ONE of you may leave a millionaire, as voted by the viewing audience.
Sound's easy doesn't it?
But there are rules. There are always rules…
THE TEN BAM COMMANDMENTS
1. You are here to live your dreams. You must fulfil at least one wish from the ‘bucket list’ of each contestant
2. Your team have exactly 7 days to spend exactly £1,000,000. Not a penny more, not a penny less
3. You shall not exceed the £20,000 limit for any single transaction
4. You shall obtain justifiable value* for all services
5. You MUST donate 5% to charitable causes
6. You may gamble up to 5%
7. You shall not destroy anything you pay for
8. You must present a receipt for every purchase
9. At the end of your week's adventure, you shall not own any assets
10. You shall return to the BAM mansion precisely at the agreed time, not a second late
*Justifiable value is regarded as the market value for the services provided and not an inflated price in order to consume capital i.e. you may hire the best personal trainer to the stars at their published daily/hourly rate but an untrained friend acting as a hairstylist for £20,000 per day is not justifiable value.
WHY BLOW A MILLION ® IS THE NEXT BIG THING
It all comes down to timing and a little bit of luck. When the original format for BAM was first created, 5G didn't exist and both Netflix and Amazon were yet to produce their first original content. Fast forward to 2021 and there has been a paradigm shift. Technology has finally caught up with the Founders imagination.
This convergence of technology and post-pandemic optimism have delivered a perfect storm - A catalyst for “The New Roaring Twenties” as predicted by every major financial publication in the first six months of 2021
The vast majority of Millenials and Gen Z rarely watch scheduled linear television; by comparison, their usage of media streaming services is exceptionally high.
“The world has recognised that the future of content delivery is the internet.
Not linear, not theatrical."
– Marc Randolph: Co-Founder and first CEO NETFLIX (15th April 2021)
You no longer require a network or production partner to deliver content directly to an aspirational audience obsessed with celebrity culture, fame, and fortune.
In a TED Talk by Robert Waldinger (Psychiatrist and Professor at Harvard) entitled: "What makes a good life? Lessons from the longest study on happiness" - Waldinger opens his talk by stating:
"In a recent survey of millennials asking them what their most important life goals were, over 80% said that one of their life goals was to get rich. Another 50% said that a major life goal was to become famous."
Needless to say, BLOW A MILLION ® offers both. In abundance; following Emmy-award-winning Executive Producer Mark Burnett’s golden rule of television:
“To create something that people want to watch.”
WHAT THE BIG CHEESES IN MEDIA ARE SAYING:
"Brewster's Millions…Love it! I love your writing and concept. I think it’s a terrific premise for a very BIG event type of show.”
Scott Manville – CEO & Founder TV Writers Vault
“The digital model is great. It will get talked about and lots of attention; it is basically crowdfunding a game show, to make certain people rich! As a business model, it’s good.”
Ruth Wrigley – EMMY/BAFTA award-winning Executive Producer, former Head of Entertainment at the BBC, Celador, Fremantle, and All3Media
"I love the concept. BLOW A MILLION ® is very well thought through and articulated and there is something wonderfully big and fun about the idea."
Remy Blumenfeld – Chief Creative Officer Thinking Violets/Executive Producer “Who’d Be A Billionaire"
“The public has a huge fascination with how the 1% live and the idea that BLOW A MILLION ® will give them an opportunity to live that lifestyle for a week is something that will appeal to the masses."
Brian Knapmiller – Executive Producer, of "Lone Target"/"Manhunt" for Discovery
"If anyone can make it happen, you can."
Joe Mace - Head of Development, ITV Studios Entertainment
