All the Way South
Online reality show The Gap Year: Challenge New Zealand began in November and follows the adventures of five British travellers battling it out over four weeks to make it to the final. Model Kimberley, student Anton, upcoming director Emma, male model Chris and show jumper Holly have been selected from hundreds of applicants to jet off to the ultimate adventure destination. Each weekday, they will post short videos and updates documenting their amazing adventures on The Gap Year homepages which currently have nearly 12,000 followers across Bebo, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and You Tube. Viewers will also be able to get actively involved with the show by interacting with the travellers and influencing their journey. Every Friday, a traveller will be sent home leaving just two worthy finalists to battle it out during the concluding week. The show is part of a Tourism New Zealand campaign encouraging young visitors to “Go All the Way” to New Zealand.
