10 boys on 10 floors and one beautiful girl in an elevator – MTV brings Elovator Pitch, a unique show which takes the idea of speed dating to the next level. Premiering on October 12, every Friday at 7PM the show will be Hosted by VJ and actor Cyrus Sahukar along with VJ Gaelyn Mendonca.
Giving romance a fresh and quirky definition, the show’s unique concept will have 10 boys on 10 floors. At every floor, a man is revealed at the other end of the elevator door. The girl on her way up encounters these men who try to woo her in their limited time. Towards the end of it the girl must shortlist three boys out of the lot and decide to go on a date with one. Likewise, 10 girls await a boy on every floor for a chance to woo him.
On hosting Elovator Pitch, VJ and host Gaelyn Mendonca says, “I’m elated to be a part of Elovator Pitch which has such a quirky concept! It promises to be a perfect combination of drama and comedy that will appeal to the millennials. As much as Cyrus and I are thrilled to host the show, I’m sure the audience will be equally thrilled to watch it.”
Our very own Cyrus Sahukar, known for his impeccable comedy and perfect punches, says, “My relationship with MTV has been for more than a decade now, it feels like family to me! Elevator Pitch will surely set a different trend amongst the youngsters I’m looking forward to hosting the show and witnessing some great ‘pitches’ by the boys. I’m confident that I will learn many different ways of wooing the girls (Laughs)!”
