New Delhi : TLC India’s no 1 lifestyle channel, offers a once-in-a-life time opportunity to people stuck in the most boring job with an unbelievable one-year travel scholarship. The winners will live a life, hold on, experience one, as they explore the world (while exploring their own self!) as they travel at leisure in the remotest locations of India, tasting the delicacies that they never knew about. To make it even more endearing, TLC will give a chance to the winners to achieve stardom as they become the face of an upcoming show – The Calling!
It is not going to be easy. The contest is as quirky as it can be. The applicants will have to submit a short 3 minutes video bringing to life all the boredom of their life? Easy? Isn’t it?
The dullest 3 video applications will win themselves the TLC Scholarship. TLC is hunting for 3 food and travel junkies who have the guts to leave their present boring life for a fulfilling tomorrow! The winners will have to pack their bags and spend the next 12 months exploring the unexplored parts of the country. The first 3 months of the scholarship will be devoted to travelling across cities as the face of the upcoming show ‘The Calling’ while for the remainder duration, the winners will be required to vlog for TLC’s social assets.
As the face of The Calling, the 3 shortlisted individuals will get a chance to travel 8 states in the country discovering their cultural sides, making friends while tasting local cuisines. The winners will also get to tick-off their bucket list while completing a mutual dare at each of the 8 locations.
“It is the innate desire of people to explore life, travel newer places, fulfill all the imaginations but since we don’t have the resources to live such a carefree life, we adjust with the circumstances and accept the mundane 9-to-5 job to fund our existence. It is here, we will make a big difference – we will enable you to live your passion in a way no one has done before,” said, Zulfia Waris, V.P Premium & Digital networks, Discovery Communications India. “This is a never before opportunity for aspirants across the country to live their life in a way that they have aspired. We have kept the contest very simple – the more creatively boring your entry is, the better is your chance to grab TLC’s 1-year scholarship.”
