(G)I-DLE’s Yuqi To Host Mnet’s Upcoming Influencer Survival Show
(G)I-DLE’s Yuqi will be hosting Mnet’s upcoming variety program!
Next month, Mnet will premiere their new variety show “Mad Zenius,” which is a survival program for influencers creating short-form content. As these influencers compete to become an icon among the “Mad Zenius” MZ generation (millennials and Gen Z), their personally created short-form content will be judged by the number of likes they receive.
(G)I-DLE’s Yuqi has been announced as the solo host for this program. She shared, “I’m so excited as this is my first time being the solo MC for a TV variety show. I was happy that I was able to get along well with the participants thanks to my bright personality.”
The six competitors include Emma, who appeared on “Street Woman Fighter” as a member of team WANT, YouTuber Jinjeolme, Reta, a singer from China, model Stephany Haery Kim, hip hop artist YongYong, and JinJin.
The influencers competing on “Mad Zenius” began their short-form content battle on October 4. As of October 26, their videos across Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube have accumulated over 6 million views, emphasizing the program’s popularity even before premiering.
The winner of “Mad Zenius” will be determined based on the number of likes each influencer receives for each mission. The influencer with the largest cumulative number of likes will win a grand prize of 100 million won (approximately $70,644).
Mnet’s “Mad Zenius” will premiere on November 10 at 9 p.m. KST!
