Season 1

The Right to Win is a South African educational television game show produced by Kagiso TV and Communications and Endemol South Africa (Season 1) and Grounded Media (Season 2) for SABC Education and the Independent Electoral Commission's civic and democracy education campaign, in which contestants stand a chance to win a cash prize in a quiz that tests their knowledge and understanding of South Africa's democracy.

Six contestants are challenged with various questions, giving a winner the opportunity to win R10,000 cash every week. Contestants must prove they are smarter than a politician.

In the first round two teams of three contestants must be first on the buzzer to answer a rapid series of questions about our democracy. At the end of the round the team that's ahead on points chooses one member of the opposing team for elimination.

In the next round, the two teams answer multiple-choice questions and race each other to build a structure called "The House of Democracy". The team with the lowest score at the end of the round is eliminated.

The final round includes a quickfire session with the remaning contestants; the one with the lowest scoring points is eliminated. The remaining two enter the "Great Debate" where a controversial aspect of a living democracy is featured and gets two solid arguments going: one 'for' and one 'against'.

The studio audience choose the most convincing speaker who wins the R10,000 prize. Each week viewers and the studio audience stand a chance to win BlackBerry cellphones.

The show aims to create an awareness of constitutional rights for people who don't have access to that kind of information, in a fun and exciting way, while challenging contestants and people sitting at home to use their thinking caps.
