The series will start with a host of ‘joke videos’ following the first challenge and the hosts – The Tenderloins get to decide the ultimate entertainer. In line with Sprite’s on-going #FakeOff campaign that urges youth to stop pretence and be comfortable in their own skin, the konkout will feature multiple ‘fake offs’ between all participants.
