Even before the current season has ended, SBS6 has already recommissioned the marble racing show “Marble Mania,” which scored an average market share of 24.5% in the 18-44 target group, and 22.3% in the 25-59 target group during its first season.
Even before the current season has ended, SBS6 has already recommissioned the successful marble racing show “Marble Mania”. With an average market share of 24.5% in the 18-44 target group, and 22.3% in the 25-59 target group, the first season of this family show proved to be the biggest hit on SBS6 in five years.
Internationally, the show also continues to draw attention, as it has already been sold to Germany (RTL) and Belgium (VTM). Moreover, thanks to the show and the fact that – due to a commercial collaboration with a Dutch supermarket chain – kids can collect marbles and build their own marble racing tracks, it has triggered an actual marble fever in The Netherlands.
On each self-contained episode of this marble spectacle, three celebrities take each other on. Each round starts with a skill assignment, such as bowling, mini golf or a special version of penalty shooting. The three celebrities need to prove their skills in order to win the most marbles to start the second game of the round: the game of luck. This marble race is all about speed, gravity and luck. The celebrity whose marble crosses the finish line first, earns the most points. After three rounds, the celebrity at the top of the ranking will get the most marbles to start in the finale, in which the celebrities can win money for a charity of their choice.
