Reality Show for Treps Moved to Later in the Year


Entrepreneurial reality TV show The Big Break Legacy returns to SABC2 on Saturday, 17 August. Season 2’s winner will walk away with a R5-million investment into their business.

The highly-anticipated show was originally scheduled to be broadcast from 4 May. However, the SABC and the organisers have moved transmission to give the contestants an opportunity to wrap up their current affairs and focus on this new journey in their lives.

Says SABC2’s publicity manager, Zandile Nkonyeni: “The show will now be broadcast from August to November, with the winner being revealed as we build up to the festive season.”

The Big Break Legacy aims to start a global revolution of entrepreneurs that build new enterprises which are innovative, exciting, sustainable and, most importantly, contribute meaningfully towards the social development of communities.

Each week, the show’s challenges test entrepreneurs for character strength, creativity, aptitude and commercial savvy in addressing real life business challenges under time and resource constraints.
