MUMBAI: MTV Hero Roadies is back with a new ripping format in its ‘X-series’. ‘No vote outs, only performance can get you to win’. This is the mantra for MTV Hero Roadies X1.

It dons a brand new avatar that salutes those who believe the only thing its worth fighting for is respect. And, this season seven boys and seven girls fight it out on equal grounds in an ultimate ride to win respect.

This year, Roadies is auditioning for equal number of boys and girls who would rough it up on even grounds to be the last Roadie standing. This season champions the youth sentiment that being brave and standing against odds is better than being the bully.

The format will reward performance over petty politics. This year, there will be no vote outs, no shortcuts and no alliances. The winner will be decided purely on basis of merit in performance on tasks. This twist in the format reflects the state of mind of young India. Confident, ambitious and street smart.

Starting 17 November, the hunt for the Roadie of the year will kick off through a grueling four-city audition. The epitome of sportsman spirit - Rannvijay, and the mentor of the format- Raghu, will handpick seven boys and seven girls across the four cities. The show will give an equal chance to both the genders to prove their merit and win the title of Roadies. The first stop for the auditions will be Delhi, followed by Chandigarh, Pune and Ahmedabad.

Speaking about the new season, Rannvijay the host of the show and first ever winner of MTV Hero Roadies says: “In the past 10 years, I have seen numerous contestants come to the show with a game plan in mind. Many a times, contestants have gone far on the show on the basis of their mind games and strategy, rather than performance. But now, all that is a thing of the past. For the first time on Roadies, a winner will be selected only on their performance in every task. It definitely is going to be one exciting journey.”

MTV Hero Roadies the returning judge and mentor Raghu Ram says: “The past 10 years has seen Roadies enjoy the top position when it comes to youth based reality shows. With the onset of season XI of Roadies we want to turn the concept around. This time the battle is solely for respect. The eliminations will also be purely performance based while there will be no place for politics. Like they say- let the best man win!”

MTV India EVP and business head Aditya Swamy explains: “India's longest running reality show is back with a format that reflects the mood of young India. On one hand, there is the demand for equal rights, on the other the ambition to succeed but only by playing fair. The theme of this season – ‘Ride for Respect’ gives the participants an equal chance. And no vote outs. All that matters is performance.”
