According to the executive producer, Kemi Otegbade, each week, viewers will vote for their favourite celebrity, while the contestant with the weakest vote will be evicted. The last man standing will go home with a cash prize of N7 million. Other contestants will go home with cash prizes while N2 million will be donated to two charity homes by the winner and N1 million goes to selected viewers.
