Namibia Broadcasting Corporation launched its first reality show

Namibia Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has finally launched, ‘Body with Maria’, the first reality show which will be aired on NBC TV every Sunday, which will be hosted by Maria Nepembe, Namibian Big brother participant. 

‘Body with Maria’ is a reality fitness show for people that want to make changes to their bodies, either to keep fit, lose weight or gain weight 

“When I was appointed as the director general of NBC, part of what I said should happen for the television was to bring in reality shows and for a year we have been talking concepts of two reality shows, one is the fitness programme ‘Body with Maria’ and the other one is ‘On the street’ which is to be announced later,” said NBC director general Stanley Similo.

“We want people to watch the show and identify people that they know, because it is more like motivating them to also make changes to their lives. As the NBC team we knew what we want and we believe this reality show will be a hit,” Similo said, adding that the show will make a lot of people realise who they are by keeping fit and eating healthily, either the participants or the viewers. 

Maria Nepembe is excited to be the first Namibian to host a reality show. The show has 10 participants who were desperate to live healthy lifestyles. She encouraged them to keep on working on their bodies and stay healthy, adding that by the end of the first season they will announce the ultimate winner.
