Think of the biggest, weirdest, cocky, testosterone-fuelled group you can think of. Then imagine them on national television, agreeing to undertake grueling tasks that intimidate them both physically and mentally. Insane, right? Well this has been going on for some time now at Yamaha FZ Presents Himalaya Roadies. Season 3 has recently hit television screen every Monday at Himalaya Television HD. And of course, Himalaya Roadies is a franchise of the revolutionary Indian reality show ‘MTV Roadies.’
Season after season, the show has drawn the attention of thousands of youth, fueling their excitement to be part of this intriguing reality tv show. For an hour every week, a massive number of viewers tune in to watch Raymond Das Shrestha, Diya Maskey, Laure, Anoop Bikram Shahi and Saman Shrestha make people squirm and cry as they are put through a series of grueling tasks.
To complement the journey that is laid to the challengers, Yamaha FZ series two wheelers has been participants’ perfect fitted artillery.
In Season 3, there’s been an alteration in the format. With gang leaders introduced, not only do participants compete with each other, but now the leaders pride is also at stake. Tasks have gotten more intimidating, if that is possible. The phenomenal landscape of Bhaktapur to Last Resort has perfectly fit to the show, and 37 contestants are embarking on the journey, out of thousands that auditioned all over the country—Kathmandu, Pokhara, Dharan, Chitwan and Nepalgunj.
With the winner set to pocket 10 lakhs and ride away with an FZS FI V3, there’s everything to play for, everything to ride for.
And before you join the Roadies on their road trip, here’s a low-down on what to expect from the new season of the adventure reality show.
