Mumbai: Having delighted audiences over nine spectacular seasons, Zee Ganga, the top Bhojpuri GEC in Bihar, Jharkhand and Purvanchal, is all set to premiere the tenth season of "Memsaab No 1" in a never-seen-before avatar.  It is the first-ever, non-scripted reality show in the Bhojpuri category.

Scripting history through the show, the channel is all set to leave viewers enthralled as they watch 16 talented female contestants staying together at Ganga Villa battle it out over 13 weeks.

Filled with high-octane drama, the upcoming season - a category first, promises to be a battlefield unlike no other as the latest edition will go beyond the song and dance format of earlier seasons. This exciting hunt for Sarv Gunn Sampann Babuni, spanning 13 weeks will see contestants be tested over three stages filled with terrific tasks. This true test of their all-around development will see their individual skills – such as presence of mind and decision-making capabilities be put to the test. Additionally, these 16 contestants will also be made to perform tasks in a family environment as one keeps a watchful eye over their nature to adjust, obey and care. Lastly, the third and final stage – social responsibility, will see them be evaluated for their awareness of what is happening around them. And amongst all this it will unveil the behind the scene relationships, power dynamics, changing fierce equations amongst the contestants and their resultant impact on the task dynamics. Thus for the first time, a non-scripted reality will be showcased to the Bhojpuri audience like never before. 

With each episode and week bringing out different sides of these contestants never seen before, "Memsaab No 1" once again will emerge to be a talent-based non-scripted reality show that gives women a platform to empower them to showcase their potential, much to the delight of viewers looking to be inspired and entertained at the same time.
