Fundis is a South African television game show based on a concept by Stemmburg Television in which contestants win and lose money in relation to their general or specialised knowledge on certain subjects.
In each episode the game consists of the following three sections:
General Knowledge Round
This is the money builder section where contestants answer general knowledge questions on any topic in order to accumulate as much money as possible.
Specialist (Fundis) Round
Each contestant answers questions from specialised sections and tries to lose as little of the money that they accumulated in the previous round.
The Jackpot Round
The winner of the evening can select a specialised section. They then have to answer five questions on this topic within 30 seconds to walk away with the jackpot, which is made up of all monies forfeited by both contestants during the program in the "Fundis" round.
The contestants for Season 2 were selected after auditioning through Zoom and WhatsApp video calls.
Each week we meet two new contestants, until Week 6. After that, the quarterfinals begin. The quarterfinalists are made up of the eight highest scoring contestants.
The quarterfinals work as knockout rounds and those who win go through to the semifinals and then the final round. The contestant who wins Episode 13 is crowned the Fundi of the series.
Fundis is hosted this season by Schalk Bezuidenhout and Sorina Erasmus, who replace Fezile Makhanya and Kope Makgae from Season 1.
The series is executive produced by Johan Stemmet from Stemmburg Television. Thabo Pitso is a producer.
Winner: Martin Oosthuizen
