Do you live life to the full, in great physical shape, have a wicked sense of humour, can think on your feet and have the ability to communicate well? If so, then enter the BAR ONE Manhunt. Who knows? You might have what it takes to go all the way. BAR ONE is looking for real men who do not shy away from challenges, who live full and active lives yet are also stylish, sophisticated and able to demonstrate their softer sides.

To win this competition, the BAR ONE Man will have to prove that he has the strength, endurance and resolve to face full-frontal challenges to overcome stiff competition for a grand prize valued at over R1-million and the honour of becoming the next BAR ONE Man.

Johannesburg-based salesman, Clint de Beer (34) beat his fellow contestants to become the first BAR ONE Man. To achieve this feat, he had to climb Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, he skydived, made his own action movie, went off-roading, raced camels in Dubai, jumped into thin air above the Victoria Falls and went white-water rafting, among many other adventures. He also had the opportunity to display his more gentlemanly side, by hosting his own cocktail party and helped to renovate a home for children with special needs, alongside the other 13 contenders.

The BAR ONE Manhunt reality TV series is open to all those who think they are cut out for it but have never had an opportunity to prove it before. This competition showcases everyday heroes.

“Being a part of this reality TV show will be a life-changing experience for the contestants because they will participate in a range of activities that they will probably never have the opportunity to do. Over the duration of the show, viewers will be able to see the contestants evolve and develop. Their inner spirit and mental fortitude will be tested to the limit. The ultimate winner will need to capture the public’s attention and dig deep to discover a hidden reserve of mental strength to push even harder,” says BAR ONE brand manager, Monique Koning.

The competition is open to males between the ages of 18 and 40. Contestants will travel to locations in South Africa and other exotic destinations across the world, including Nevada, the Great Wall of China and Zanzibi.
